|Cracked Mommy Digitally Enhanced to Remain Anon|
Cracked! I'm cracked. No, no, not in my head. My feet. Someone stole the feet I remember BEFORE kids and replaced them with those of a ninety-year-old called Nana.
I think Betty White's feet must look better.
It all started with the quick mommy shower. You know what I mean. Wash all vital parts quickly while kids nap.
No time to shave legs or moisturize with the kids screaming down the bathroom door, or even better, cutting the baby's hair. Yep, true story on that baby hair. He got a reverse mohawk with black sharpie highlights during one such shower.
Fast forward ten years...ten years of egregious neglect? Not only is that baby ten, but he still has his mohawk. And my feet? My scaly legs? The ones that snag blankets? They have suffered.
Whoever said a sign of a happy home is a messy house got it wrong.
|More Than a Jar of Moisturizer in EVERY Bottle?|
Enter Olay to the rescue again.
I have been an intensely loyal Olay fan for years. I'm actually pretty good about slathering my face with their products in my turbo-speed nightly ablutions. So I was quite excited when they sent me their Olay Ultra Moisture body wash in the mail.
They claimed it had more than a jar of moisturizer in every bottle.
Hmmm...I wonder if there was hope for my cracked hooves after all.
A week later? Their claim was correct. I actually felt the difference the first time I showered. This product was different. My skin felt so smooth and clean. Even better, I had time to take my Eldest, with his newly minted driver's permit (gulp!) for a short first lesson instead of trying to Crisco up my feet. (Not joking-that's the depths to which it has gotten.)
