I have a confession to make. I TiVo 18 Kids and Counting. Yes, I’m a Duggar whore. A friend of mine mentioned that they showed a home birth today. At first, I was afraid I’d miss it. Then I realized that my overly-priced, husband-demanded ginormous TV has every episode at my disposal. I feel better now.
So, as I watch the beloved Duggar family enjoy mundane life, I sit and smell myself. Well, not like that. Not quite as obvious as the cheerleader on SNL, but discreetly, I smell (just let me put it that way). Since Hayden was diagnosed with autism, I’ve learned the importance of natural living. I refuse to wear anti-perspirant during this pregnancy. I’ll wear natural deodorant, but that’s kinda like slapping on some baking soda and hoping for the best. I’ve scrubbed, cleaned, deodorized (as much as Whole Foods can offer) and it’s never too long before I’m less than fresh.
And I’m really ok with that…the natural smell and the Duggar’s home birth. I’m learning, slowly but surely, how life should be lived. I do it one episode and deodorant swipe at a time.
