They say everything changes when you become a parent. And they are right. A lot of things changed, thing I expected to change. But I didn’t anticipate that showering would become such a luxury. The first few weeks with Cohen I hardly showered. It’s the dirtiest I’ve ever been. I wasn’t sure if I was allowed to shower while he was sleeping. What if he wakes up? What if I don’t hear him cry? After a few weeks I figured out I could pull his bouncer in the bathroom, shower really fast and jump out before any crying started. Or sometimes I’d wake up really early, 5 am, just to jump in the shower by myself. I needed that time. Bathing changed that day I become a mom. But not only that, I didn’t feel great about myself. Afterall, I was dealing with a postpartum body that was dirty and covered in milk most of the time.
Now, nearly two years later, I have a my general shower schedule back. Now, showering is the perfect excuse to pass the baby off and have some alone time! ME time! No baby crying time! I love feeling clean. Showering in the morning always wakes me up and sets the tone for my day. I’ve been using Dove® VisibleCare™ Renewing Crème Body Wash for a few weeks now and it’s been making my skin feel awesome! My skin is softer and looks better already. I feel more beautiful. I feel better when I’m clean and taking care of my skin. It’s good to start the day that way. Showering has become a vacation for me and that me time is so important when you’re a mom. I find that when I shower in the morning, just that little act of taking care of myself and having that important me-time, gives me more stamina and my day is more productive. It’s those little things that really make the big things align.
Dove® VisibleCare™ Renewing Crème Body Wash is creamy and nice. It feels rich. It’s fruity and floral fragrance is the perfect blend for me. My skin feels nourished! And so does my soul.
Am I the only one that sometimes takes two showers a day just for a break?
