If you are a SAHM, do you get up and get dressed up each day?

hair, make up, nice clothes, etc? I feel like such a bum some days b/c I am too tired to put anything on besides wind pants and a tshirt. i have a 9 week old and a two year old but feel like I should be making more of an effort to look nicer! lol what do you think?

  • I have an almost 3 and almost 1 yr old, and yes, I get dressed and fix my hair and makeup everyday (unless I'm sick). I feel gross if I don't!

  • I would say I do probably half the time, but I am virtually always dressed, with a bit of make up and at least jeans and a top by the time my husband gets home around 5:30

    If I didn't have to shower before I got dressed, I would get dressed earlier everyday, but from the second I wake up there is usually something that needs to be done immediately, and I refuse to put nice clothes on a not clean body, even if I showered the night before.

    Having a 9 week old and a two year old, I think you are doing great if you are showered every day, your house isn't a disaster, and you aren't in pjs. I have four year olds and I'm in yoga pants and a tank top for most of the day if I am at home.

  • If I have days where I am not going anywhere, I stay in my pajamas. I let the kids too. Lazy days can be fun. Of course showers and baths are done daily no matter what.

  • I get up at 6 am, get dressed, do my hair and makeup and walk the kids to school. I usually will take my shower/bath at night after they're asleep.

  • When I was a SAHM you were lucky to see me out of pajama's unless I was going somewhere.

  • Yes, unless I am sick. Then no why should I, I don't expect the kids to get dressed when sick so I shower and put on clean Pj's LOL

  • lol im in sweats all day unless i go somewhere its just easier to move in. i will do my hair, normally just a ponytail and just my eye make up. anything else is just a waste!
