Pretty Up!! ~ Little Leaps of Love

Today's Little Leap might require a quick 5 minutes of your time. Five minutes. Can you handle it? You can! You can!

I can't even begin to tell you how many times at the end of the day I've gotten a look at myself in the mirror - and it hasn't generally been a pleasant experience. My clothes have become a mess from lugging boxes and moving things. My shoulders encounter various states of emotions during the day: tears fall, noses run…and leave a trail of unpleasantness on my shoulder in the process. Getting cleaned up after a meal I inevitably end up with something sticky on my shirt.

Essentially I'm a mess. I might look decent before the kids get up, but throughout the day my appearance takes a fast nosedive when surrounded by so many little hands, noses, and bodies.

Then my husband comes home. Inevitably, he even is able to point out something on me that I hadn't even noticed. Generally somewhere on my back or bottom - lovely.

So, today's Little Leap? Before your husband gets home take a quick 5 minutes to run into your room, change into a clean shirt (should it be needed), touch up (or put on a little) makeup, make yourself smell nice (i.e. not like baby something or other), brush that hair into some semblance of order - and greet him with a big hug and a smile.
