Personal Hygene

I'm beginning to rethink my personal hygene schedule. I've always showered in the morning to begin my day. But as I sit here after putting all the kids to bed I'm starting to wonder why it is I do that.

Right now I'm covered in regurgitated blueberries and apples all over my shirt. I have actual splatter marks on my sweat pants from where the baby threw up while I was standing up holding her. I was so impressed with the babies power I showed my husband who just looked at me in astonisment trying to figure out why I was showing him that.

I'm pretty sure I have poop in my hair too. I moved some hair out of my face while changing the baby only to notice minutes later my hands were dirty. I've also got some blood on my hands from where I covered up my son's road rash while carrying him inside after crashing on the pavement.

Yeah, I'm going to take a shower now.

I used to shower in the my previous life when I dressed decently and spent the day among the civilized. After nearly 10 years at home with the 3 little pigs, I find a shower right before bed is much sweeter.

I shower at night too. One less thing to do in the morning when everyone (5 little ones) is clamoring for breakfast!

Right before bed is the perfect time to shower. I read somewhere that it helps you sleep, and I've found it to be true. Going from a hot steamy shower to a relatively cool bedroom helps your body feel like sleeping.
That being said, I take a shower any time I can get it!

So funny!
I always end up showering at night because I can't seem to get in there during the day, no time!
Take care! And come visit my blog sometime!
PS thanks for voting for me today! :)

I think a night shower is the best! It is a nice break between your mom duties and some 'me' time, and then you wake up ready to start the day...
