  • Nope, I find it hard too.... I like to actually gt ready after a shower or I will feel ugly all day. And that means I need to blow dry and straighten my hair.... and then do my make up. My hair is past my bra strap, coarse and semi-thick, so it takes about an doesnt dry straight or curly, kind of in between... its frizzy too.... so yeah i find it really hard. I try to put D in her play pen while I am doing those things...I just leave the bathroom door open

  • And if you take a shower at night your hair will get all messed up from sleeping on it.

  • I get up earlier than the kids and shower and get ready for the day. Yeah getting up early sucks but Im used to it and like that I can get ready and enjoy the one moment of quiet time and a cup of coffee before my 3 kids get up.

  • I have a really hard time! My youngest is in our room so I can't take a shower and chance waking him and my oldest is a light sleeper and his bedroom is next to the other bathroom so again can't wake him. Sometimes I can get a quick one in before my oldest wakes up and let the youngest play in his crib but that's fairly rare. LOL

  • I'm with you.
    I tried getting up early, the youngest catches me. It never works out.

  • Are yal for real,35 years ago I gave birth to a baby at 14,then at 16 I gave birth again,everyday I went to school my DH went to work,I came home cooked,did my homework, graduated on time,went to college, and guess what, I never missed a shower, I took 2 showers a day,1 in the a.m and one in the p.m.. I keep trying to understand, I want to understand,what is so hard,and most of the time it's the SAHM, who are complaining, I do apologize if, I came off strong,but, we are mothers, and yes,as young as I was,my loving daughters turned out to be beautiful ,well-education women,who remained virgins until marriage.And,now, they are hard working moms, and they never complain at all. Just take a bath,take the baby in the bathroom with you,better yet take them in the shower with you,they will love it.

  • OMG showers are the ONLY time I have to myself, I mean USE to have to myself. My 5 month old has been really clingy lately and it's been SOOO much easier to bring her in the shower with me and kill 2 birds with 1 stone. I remember when I first brought her home, I wasn't able to shower for 9 days!! I was recovering from a c-section, she was my first child & my husband was busy keeping friends and family away to give me some time to
