Poor hygiene

Since having kids I don't always keep my body hair as well shaves off as I did when I was younger. My legs I shave 1-3 times a week (if I'm wearing shorts), my girly parts once a week - every 2 weeks, and my pits evert 2-3 days. My hair I normally run a brush through it and pull it up instead of styling it like I used up, and most days forget about make up. There's days I wear the same pants and shirt twice in one week so I don't have to do laundry and I only clean house on my off day.
Anyone else wanna confess some of the hygiene habits they've let slip?

 I had my first child in 1993....before that I was your quintessential 80's-90's big haired bitch....I certainly don't spend two hours a day getting ready anymore, but basic hygiene is a different matter.

I sometimes forget to brush my hair until I get to work, I've even gotten to the store before I realized, I don't shave unless I have to put on shorts, mainly because im 8 months pregnant and it hurts to try to reach anything below my knee.

I've never been big on shaving my legs, but I don't skimp on any other hygiene practices. I sometimes wear a bra 2 days in a row....does that count?

Actually, shaving and make up has nothing to do with good hygiene.  That's an aesthetic standard that doesn't contribute to health in any way, unlike brushing teeth, washing your body, etc.

I'm 5 months right now. If I can't easily reach it and I don't feel like shaving it, I don't. Dh can do it if it's an issue. Lol
