YES! I feel like this all the time... but I think back to when I didn't have my son and think "why do I have to be someone else or not look good anymore because I have a child" and it fixes everything! My husband is also on board with me needing to do something or buy something for myself once in awhile so that helps. I think I mostly think this way too because I technically didn't "work" for the money I am spending on myself but then I stop that thinking because I am working! working to raise our child to be happy and healthy. :)

I feel this too! but i think its important to remember that you are a woman too and need things for yourself. The last thing you want is to simply become an extension of someone else, you want to show your kids and yourself you are an independent person as well as an amazing mother! :) Good Luck!
