Road trips are meant to be fun right? I personally love taking them every chance I get. I like packing up, wearing my sunglasses and singing songs on the highway like I’m the artist on stage while driving to my destination. It was all so simple before our daughter Juliette was born. Now I try my best to plan it all out before hitting the road.
Ever feel overwhelmed with bringing the baby out on a date night? Now, that we’ve been married for two years and have our Juliette date nights are now turning into family night out. A few months ago I surprised Johnathan with tickets to see the Nashville Symphony perform the music of QUEEN for our 2nd wedding Anniversary. He was very excited and this was the perfect event since we knew this year we would be celebrating with our daughter in tow.
Everyone who knows me already know I love concerts. The first concert I attended was non other than Ms. Patti LaBelle at 5 years old. I can remember seeing Patti kick off her high heel shoes, get on her knees and roll around singing. That was back when R&B music was real and made sense. I grew up listening to artist like Earth, Wind & Fire, Debarge, Frankie Beverly & Maze, Marvin Gaye, Tammi Terrell, Diana Ross, Luther Vandross, Whitney Houston, The Gap Band and countless others that I adore. I knew I would bring Juliette to shows with me at an early age.
This is how I walked around the house for the first months of our child’s life and mostly in a robe since I nurse Juliette. I must say when my husband JP told me to come here, I did not think his next words would be I think there’s something in crawling in your hair. After a few moments of him picking through my hair, he told me it was nothing just a piece of lint.
JP then said, in his kindest voice “Babe, when was the last time you washed your hair?” I honestly couldn’t remember. JP told me to go handle that and I’ll watch Juliette. I was reluctant at first, but I knew I needed this.
I started to ask myself when was the last time I took the time to give myself love and care that I truly needed. Let’s see, I hadn’t shave the hair on my legs since the 2nd trimester and now it’s beyond the 4th trimester. I hadn’t shaved my armpits since a week before Juliette was born. I would normally wash my hair weekly before getting low maintenance hairstyles such as braids, but who’s counting now (perhaps I should go back to braids).
(Here’s the products that I used: BIC® Soleil® Original Disposable Razor, Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner, Dove Deodorant for Sensitive Skin, Avenno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Yogurt Body Wash/Apricot and Honey, Active Naturals Positively Smooth Shave Gel, Govanni 2Chic BlackBerry Hair Serum, it’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product, and Palmer’s Skin Therapy Oil, Coconut Face Oil and Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks)
I took full advantage of the time I had on my hands for self care. I washed my hair and took care of everything that I’ve neglected for far too long. My shower was even a bit longer. Normally, I would rush through it to get back to our baby, but not this hour. It was for me and afterwards I felt so much better.
Whenever, JP hears me turn on the hair blow dryer he comes in to tackle the job. It’s a wonderful feeling to know he’s love to help me look and feel my best.
Once it was dry I flat ironed my hair. In all this may have taken me 1 hour and 30 minutes. I felt so refreshed after a little self care. I urge you to take sometime for yourself. You will be glad you did!
