You remembering to take care of yourself?
 
Especially you moms with older kids like me...you remembering to, you know, eat? Finding time to shower?

Doing pretty well...but my older ds is in school, so that certainly makes it a little easier!

When DH is home, he's so helpful and makes sure I have time to take care of me (shower, meals, bathroom breaks). When he's at work, not so easy. Depends on whether I can get Michael to sit in the swing for a bit or take a nap. Then I try to cram in a load of laundry, fixing lunch, dishes, folding laundry, picking up around the house, and a quick bite to eat. It will get a tiny bit better when Michael isn't marathon nursing around the clock. Just trying to keep hydrated is hard right now.

Showering every other day. Eating two meals. But she never wants to be put down so practically swallowing those two meals whole.

I make sure that I get a shower every day. I like to shower in the morning, if I have to wait until evening I pretty much hate myself by then. I eat no problem because I can get food together while holding her.

I take showers with DD1 if DD2 is sleeping. Sometimes that only happens every other day. I eat a quick snack in the morning and then something for dinner but usually while standing up holding Laila. Any hands free time I get is usually spent cleaning up some sort of mess or doing laundry.

I'm eating three meals a day. Trying to get in a shower every other day, but I did just go 3 days. Now if I could only remember to brush my teeth more than once a day.

The weekends are great because my mom comes down so I can go run errands and I actually went to lunch with a friend today.

Now that we're on a 4 hour feeding schedule I should have a little more me time to take care of the necessities.

:hahano:

I barely take showers, I am greasy and have spit up on my sweatshirts, that I'm living in now at home.

I eat standing up, hate cooking more than ever, so I'd rather not eat, or just have a protein bar for my lunch and the kids get canned soup or a sandwich or something easy and fast for their lunch.

Sleep is always #1 on my list, but my LOUD sweet little boy makes sure I don't know what that is any more.

My boobs are always hanging out of my shirt with a sweet little thing attached to one of them.

I think I'm staying on top of things better than at the end of pregnancy lol. I get a shower or bath every day. I just need Lilah to nap for a bath. DS usually stands in the bathroom with me, throwing his bath toys in the tub lol. I haven't found time to do my eyebrows though... Cause I'm usually trying to clean if I have any time on my hands. And I'm on top of feeding myself and cooking every night. I just make myself something every time I feed DS. DH has made a few meals, too. I'm glad he likes to cook sometimes!

Re: You remembering to take care of yourself?
 
I scarf down food anytime I can..i pig out and hope ive eaten enough.. I will not give up my shower..its my only time of solitude. So I shower while the twins nap so its not too much of a burden on my husband with them and the 3 and 4 yr old. I am, however, not getting nearly the sleep i need or desire, which is not so good.... :/ Ive been living in shirts and sweatpants or yoga pants...no sense in getting all dressed up when im just going to get spit up on.
