Im not talking about women who spend hrs in the salon and shopping (which honestly if thats what she does to unwind who cares?). But do you think a woman is a shitty mom if on a daily basis she spends some time on her appearance? 10-15 min on hair maybe another 10-15 min on makeup, a few min to put on a cute outfit? I dont but I guess this is a more prevelent thought than I realized.

Because the time spent on herself would be better spent on the kids. Duhhh

Dontcha know being a Mom means you're never allowed to do anything for yourself? You're not even allowed to have alone time with your partner...unless you;re trying for another kid.

And then you're only allowed to try for another kid if the existing kid is being watched by  family member.

Nope. Not at all. I love to look nice. My husband likes that I look nice all the time. And I don't want my kids to be embarrassed by me.

Yes. Because obviously all women should be so completely dedicated to their children and never want to do anything for themselves because, selfish duh, to the point where they burn out and become insane and fake their death to escape the demands of motherhood.
