Dove! Take me Away!

Posted: July 18th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Stuff I Like | Tags: Product Reviews | No Comments »

This summer, and subsequently the boys not being in school every day, kind of snuck up on me.  I found myself flailing around trying to get into a rhythm, a routine, of any sort.  We didn’t need to be up at 6:30, so I let everyone stay in bed until 7:30 or 8 (if I was lucky).  Of course once I opened the boys bedroom door it was non-stop go-go-go until I fell into a chair exhausted around 7:06pm and opened up my laptop to blog.

At one point I realized it had been *days* since I had showered.  Of course we had been outside in the pool, but what had happened that I had fallen into the routine of a mother of a newborn?  I tried to make time but late nights blogging meant I was in no shape to get up early (I am not a morning person) and it didn’t occur to me that I could take a shower at midnight…

And then a box containing a bottle of Dove® VisibleCare™ Softening Créme body wash showed up on my doorstep.

It was the perfect nudge to make time.  Every. Day.

And I have.

I would be lying if I told you that every shower was luxurious and long and *exactly* what I need to recharge.  Many of them have included a toddler standing at the far end of the tub and tepid water (so as not to burn the toddler) but, I am making the effort.  I am getting back into a routine and on the nights that I can sneak an extra long hot shower, I relish it.

For the past year we’ve been using mostly locally made soaps- mostly goats milk soaps, and I love them for many reasons.  But they don’t leave me with that luxurious, moisturized feeling.  After a month spent outside in the heat and humidity, my skin is needing some extra moisture right about now, and I also need a facelift, but we will have to wait for that one.

I have many days when I close my eyes and scream “Calgon! Take me away!” in my head (I have days when I scream it out loud too).  I’m hoping 20 minutes for myself each day will help to bring some serenity back to my life.  And after the past few weeks, I may just be screaming “DOVE!  Take me away!” when I need a few minutes to recharge..  The Dove® VisibleCare™ Softening Créme body wash has brought that back to my skin.
