Monday Mommy Confession #42

Let’s talk deodorant. By a show of hands (or lack thereof) how many of you forget or just don’t bother with deodorant when you are at home? Anyone, anyone? Ok I’ll start. Hi my name is Libby and I forget to where deodorant more often then I remember to. There I said it.

The other day I was having this conversation with my husband. He said he needed to shower. I said why, you just showered yesterday (no I don’t shower everyday either. Deal with it). He said that he smelled, and though I said I didn’t notice he said he did and it bothered him. Then the real problem came out. He admitted to me that since he had started working from home he had become rather lacks in the deodorant department. I gently reminded him that he doesn’t put deodorant on for everyone else; he puts it on for me.

Yes, later it dawned on me that I was the pot calling the kettle black.

I wasn’t always this way. I used to work and applied deodorant religiously. But when you welcome a beautiful new baby into your life and say sayonara to sleep, you’re just happy if you make it out of your pjs and run a toothbrush over your teeth (and in those first few weeks the odds are not in your favor that either of those things are going to happen either.)

You know it’s bad when your four year old pushes away from you and say “momma you stink! You need to take a shower.” loud and clear for the entire world to hear. Aren’t kids just the greatest! In my defense that only happened during the hottest part of the summer, when even the I did put on deodorant it melted off like chocolate in the hands of a two year old.

I am pleased to say that I have managed to remember to put deodorant on every day this week (I think). And I hope that I can do better at this goal then must people do at their New Year resolution.

So do you have any basics that sometimes don’t even make it on a burner let alone on the front burner?

Are you kidding? I not only forget to put it on, I flat out choose not to. However, the other day I ran out of deodorant for the first time in…. well, probably too long. So I bought more and it felt great. I walked out of the store with deodorant AND hair product in my cart and felt like I was queen of the world! I have not put any on today however… I will go do that.
Also, on another note. I love reading your blog. I don’t always get a chance to write anything in response. But I do thoroughly enjoy it. In fact, I wish I could put it on some sort of “audio” mode and have the blog posts read to me while I drank coffee and pretended that it was you I was really talking to. 🙂 Miss you friend.

Jenny, Sometimes I thing “I should put on deodorant”. I sometimes will even look at it sitting on my dresser, and the I thin “nah, that would mean I would need to walk all the way over there, maneuver that stick under my shirt and apply it. That is too much trouble!”

I miss you like crazy too! I will try and get something posted soon so that you have something to read!
