I have managed to shower every single day for the last three weeks, though. It goes a long way in making me feel like a normal person.
My neighbour who is very sweet was back to a size 6 at 2 weeks pp and looked fabulous all the time. It has done nothing for my self esteem
as for the showers, i have been getting one every couple days.. which i think is pretty good.
Oh yeah, definitely a pony tail over here too. Someone told me I should go get a nice haircut right before the baby came so I'd feel pretty afterward. I'm so glad I didn't! DS loves to grab my hair when I burn him-- pony tail is my only defense, and I would have lost it with the nice graduated bob I was going to get.
I and the kids have to be dressed all next week to take dd to vacation Bible school at church. If we make it all 5 days, it will be the first time since Sam was born that the three of us have been presentable more than 2 days in a row.
I end up walking around the house allot with my boobs hanging out one way or another. Today I actually got some gardening done (weather is FINALLY nice) and even painted the ceiling of the house we are going to move into soon so I wore regular, pre-pregnancy pants for the first time in months and months.
... or take the diaper out of my shirt.

However, occasionally on weekends I would get out of bed and eat breakfast in my pj's. Then I KNOW the neighbor is going to stop by. Every time both DH and I swear that I don't lounge in my pj's all the time, it's just him!
And sure enough, the first time since my babymoon week, today I came downstairs in my pj's and ate breakfast with DH before he left for work. His apprentice leaves his truck here and they carpool to the job site. And what does DH do? INVITE HIM IN for a minute! And I'm in my pajamas! irony...irony...
DH and I - totally winging life with our four children, DS1 (6.5yrs), DS2 (5yrs), DD (3yrs) and DS3 (1)!
