Hello, my name is Mary -- and I look like absolute arse today. Actually, that's being kind. I look like sh*% run over twice, ok -- and at this point, I really don't care. Yes, that's me in the photo. (Ain't I a beaut?) Go ahead and let the insults rip -- because I definitely deserve 'em.
Usually, the lack of makeup on my face, insane bags under my eyes, greasy hair, and frumpy sweats are something I'd yell at myself for allowing to happen. But not today. You see, I'm going on day two of being home with my son, who has the flu. Yes, the flu flu -- and it's awful. I've barely slept. I can't remember if I even washed my face this morning, let alone had a chance to shower. And even dry shampoo just isn't workin' for me today.
But you know what? Given what I've been through over the past 48 hours or so, I kind of think I deserve a free pass to look horrendous -- at least until my little dude is feeling better. Besides, I'm not leaving the house, so who cares what I look like?
Ok, I've said my peace. Here are 8 times it's perfectly acceptable for moms to look like total crap.
What other times do you think moms deserve a hall pass from having to look good?
