I am a 24 year old mother of 2 boys (3 years/4 months). I have totally let myself go and was wondering if there was anyone out there who was having the same problem. I guess I feel the time and energy spent trying to look pretty isn't worth spending when I can be doing something more productive and the end result is puke all over your nice shirt, your shirt looking horrible after going up and down all day for breastfeeding and your hair pulled out by the baby. I normally don't get out of the house but to do grocery shopping, taking my 3 year old to preschool and going to the park or other outings, but when I do I don't pay attention to what I am wearing. I feel sorry for those who have to look at me, but at least I get a shower in! Part of the problem is my clothes don't fit and have no income to buy clothes. Is anyone in this situation or has been in this situation and has gotten out! and HOW!???
