Then you realize you've got a whole new body you're working with - and while I'm sure others have fared better than I have - I look something like Adam Sandler did in his scene in "Click." See picture below - and this was the best I could find, when you do a google search for Adam Sandler+Fat, things get real interesting real fast...trust me on that one.
If you're still following along, here's the gist. Just when you think you couldn't look frumpier, have any less time to resolve said frumpiness, and you're literally using every hour of your day for a specific purpose - your post partum self takes it up a notch and you LOSE YOUR HAIR. I thought the hair loss thing was exaggerated, but no 'tis not, I'm afraid. Around month three I started losing it by the handful, but I've got thick hair, so no biggie. But want to know what sucks the most? When the hair comes back. I look like I burnt off the entire front section of my hair. No lie. I took a picture for you all (lucky you!):
It was about this time that I realized all hope is lost. So, yesterday I sunk to a new low. I was out of time (remember there is no time?!?!) and I couldn't handle my uni-brow. I was about to give Frida Kahlo a run for her money. I did the most logical thing I could think of - I shaved off the middle of my overgrown eyebrows with a nose hair trimmer. I even knew it was a bad idea at the time, but I couldn't stop myself. My hand involuntarily picked up the trimmer and did the deed.
I am sharing this as a plea for help. I think it's time for an intervention.
