Has anyone seen my mojo?

I feel like I've lost my mojo.

I usually have snappy comebacks. Usually can make up a pretty witty Facebook status. I'm usually the girl that everyone can count on for a laugh. Or two. But lately? It seems like I struggle with these things.


Is it because I don't get out as much as I used to? Or maybe because I hold about 75% of my conversations with 2 toddlers?

I told myself before the babies were born that I wouldn't let the routine of being a mommy affect me. I would still flat iron my hair on a regular basis, make sure my outfits were cute.. I would NOT get the "mom" hair cut. I would take care of myself as well as my little babies.

Well, as I sit here in pajamas I put on YESTERDAY because I wasn't able to take a shower I feel pretty defeated. Having 2 toddlers to take care of is not an easy task. Getting dolled up is a luxury around here. The norm is walking out of the house and making sure you don't have smushed banana on your shirt or syrup in your hair. My flat iron hasn't been pulled out in weeks.

I just went and bought a pack of 50 ponytails. My 2nd one in 2 months. That's more then I've bought in 2 years!

This girl is a hot mess. (My kids look supre cute though.)

So, how do I get my mojo back?

I struggle with this every day too!!! I've never been a girl to get "made up" on a daily basis, but geez, those days of sloppiness are becoming more and more frequent.

Oh well - tis the life of raising 2 babes at once!!!

Denver is only 2 weeks old and I'm already feeling your pain. I'm a "don't leave the house without make up" kind of girl and these days I'm lucky to get a shower at all. If you figure it out - let me know!
