Hairy Armpits


A couple of days ago, after my shower, I was putting my hair up in a bun and only had a singlet on so out of the corner of my eye I see some darkness. I had to do a double take, I could not believe what I was seeing… I thought to myself, “When was the last time I shaved?!” I could not for the life of me remember when that was. GROSS! So so gross!
Bubba and I have both been unwell so it had simply slipped my mind. Taking a shower was mission enough.
It got me thinking about just how much I have changed and how my priorities have changed since becoming a mum and I totally don’t mind one bit.

Before I was a mother I was a ‘shave once a day’ kinda girl (yes yes I know you shouldn’t do it that often). I couldn’t bare the thought of there being even a little bit of growth. When I was pregnant this changed because my skin wasn’t handling it anymore… not sure if this was the pregnancy making my skin more sensitive or my skin simply saying, “I have had enough! Give me a break!” but it became an ‘every second day or so’ thing. THEN when I had bubba and showers became something that needed to be rushed, things like shaving would get missed sometimes. I would go many days without shaving but this has to be a record… I’m thinking maybe 2 weeks or more? Honestly cannot remember.
I don’t even want to think about my legs or anywhere else for that matter (sorry hubby!!!).
Good thing it’s winter here in Australia, so I’m wearing my jeans or tights every day and my swimmers have been pushed to the back of the draw. I must mention that I am also very lucky in the fact that I have very very fair hair so most of the time you can’t really tell but still…

I’m quite sure I am not the only girl out there who has missed her shaving days… right?!

  1. Ok well my youngest is 6 and I did the same thing the other day. I seriously almost died when I saw them because then, instantly, I had visions of what I had been wearing the day before…a singlet and I KNOW that I was revealing those bad boys to THE WORLD! Shame 😳
