Minnie Mama's Blog

The Mirror

Posted on: November 6, 2009

The mirror. The florescent lights. Minnie Mama. It was a scary site!

I just stepped into the bathroom at work and while washing my hands I looked up and caught a glimpse of my reflection in the mirror. I’d like to think that what I saw peering back at me was someone else or at least blame it on those darn florescent lights, but I know the truth — it was a tired & aging Minnie Mama!  😦

I stared back at myself for a moment before deciding to make matters worse by disecting myself. My roots desperately need to be colored…okay I have a hair appt. tomorrow so I guess we can maybe give me a free pass for that one. But the dark circles under my eyes are unexcusable! Where did those little lines around my eyes come from? And I’ve always been pale, but jesus I look extra sickly and its not even the dead of winter yet, what the heck?! And lets be totally honest since I am just putting it all out there — I look kinda like a Zombie, like a sleepless Mama Zombie!

Okay so for those of you who don’t have children yet then you might want to stop reading this now before you learn the truth. I fear saying this, but I think all of this is a result of almost two years of awful / no sleep! Yup, thats right. My beautiful (well rested) little girl did this to me! LOL

Obviously I love my daughter very much, more than anything in the world, but good lord — Mama needs some sleep or at least a makeover! And since I don’t actually want anyone taking her for an overnight sleep over without me (yes, I am over protective and paranoid – back off!) then I will have to hope (hint, hint all you generous companies in need of mom blog reviews) that perhaps I can find the time to enjoy a facial, a new moisturizer cream to fight these wrinkles, or at the very least find a more effective heavy duty foundation!  🙂

So thats my confession for the day. I am falling apart. It shows.

Lets hope I can pull it all together by this Sunday and try to look 1/2 way presentable as I am the Maid of Honor in my sister’s wedding with all pretty young college kids. God help me as for once in my life I am gonna be the old lady! Ugh, thats a whole other post though so I am signing off before these aimlessly typing fingers send me into a nervous state of depression over this one!  🙂

Oooh, I bet that treatment was amazing! In my pre-Isabella days (AKA when I was young & spent money foolishly) I used to religiously get a facial 1x month — it was so nice!

Hopefully though once she’s older like your girls then I will get to sleep again. 🙂

You are so sweet, thank you. The wedding was yesterday and thanks to lots of make-up, I think I looked 1/2 way decent. I will post some pics once I upload them.

Hope you have a wonderful day! 🙂

Oh girl…I think I am several years older than you (I just turned 40) and I feel your pain! 😉

I got to indulge in a microdermabrasion treatment at a skin spa type place last summer and it really helped.

Finally I do get decent sleep now that my girls are older, but the sleepless nights take their toll for sure!

I know you’ll look beautiful for the wedding, though!
