Being a mom can be stressful.
Constant cleaning up after the kids, making sure they’re fed and checking homework, yields very little time for yourself.
Well, actress Jessica Beil feels the pain. With a kid of her own, Biel admits getting everything done can be a feat.
On @theskimm Well good morning @JessicaBiel. UpWiththeSkimm #SkimmLife Name: Jessica Biel Job: Mama Bear, actress, producer, wannabe alpinist, consummate student of the @WomanCareGlobal #ThenWhoWill campaign. What time do you get up? It varies but I would say always (2) hours before I’d really like to. How many times do you snooze? I’m not a snoozer. Never have been. Wish I was but I would never get up if I did. I do snooze periodically throughout the day during any sort of boring conversation. Do you snore? I don’t think so. And even if I did, my dog Tina snores so loudly that no one would ever know if I did. Thanks T. 3 things you can't live without in the AM? Yoga. Eating breakfast with my kid. Listening to Erykah Badu while I eat with my kid. We love her. Favorite line from theSkimm recently? “What to say to your niece who just found out about Santa? It’s OK. The Nazi Gold Train isn’t real either. What's your morning drink? Bullet Proof Decaf Coffee. Who do you let speak to you before coffee? Wait… is that an option? Complete the sentence: Woke up like this: Disheveled, running late, doing too many things at once and underperforming all of them; but pretty thrilled about mediocrity! Could be a lot worse, guys. A lot worse.
That’s why, when TheSkimm asked about how she begins her morning routine , Biel replied: “Disheveled, running late, doing too many things at once and underperforming all of them; but pretty thrilled about mediocrity! Could be a lot worse, guys. A lot worse.”
Then she revealed her secret to shaving off a little extra time.
“Yes. I eat in the shower. I admit it. Chicken apple sausage and espresso. Try it. I dare you. #ShowerEats,” she captioned an Instagram shower shot.
Mom’s raved at Biel’s morning work-around.
These were some of the comments:
“Haha this is awesome :)”
“A mom multitasking…love it!”
“I feel lucky to get time to eat or shower with my 3 kids. I totally support eating in the shower.”
“I eat,hide, pray, and half sleep in the shower… Then always followed by a 3 yr old a husband and infant at the door! 😜”
“I eat in the bathtub. I also do this with my kids when they are upset. Put them in a warm bath with some ice cream or macaroni and rub their backs and tell them a story…”
“You’re a mom. Gotta multitask!”
“Sometimes as a mom the only place for peace is the shower (if ur lucky).”
“The ultimate working mom, peaceful breakfast. Nice!”
Worth a shot?
