Mariposa is the hostess for FM this week, and her topic is pampering, how do we pamper ourselves? Pampering huh? The baby is the only one ‘pampered’ around here, and I don’t mean her bum! She gets a manicure and a pedicure several times a week, and a bath every day or two, or three, let’s face it, she doesn’t get real dirty. Her clothes and diapers are washed for her and she is dressed by her servants, fed upon demand, whisked to bed at a moment’s notice for a lovely sleep, and then awakens to be fed yet again, lest we (I) feel her wrath. Her toys and other accessories follow her wherever she goes, and if she’s not sung to every couple of days, she gets in a royal snit.
Me, get pampered? Get real! 2 weeks ago I managed to get my badly chipped nail polish off my piggies and get them trimmed, then last weekend I managed to get polish reapplied. It’s not that I don’t have TIME to do it, it’s just that I’d much rather be doing a million other things than taking care of myself. Who is supposed to pamper me? Anyone know? I haven’t had a haircut or my brows taken care of since October 2007. I have to keep my nails short so I don’t scratch the baby and forget any new jewelry, it would just get slobbered on. No, I don’t get pampered around here. BB (before baby), my idea of pampering was getting to have a bath every week or so and lazily reading a book. Sigh. Not anymore!
