I get up at 6am to glam up before my baby wakes – moms send me hate for dressing up, but I'm setting him an example | The Sun

A NEW mom is making a great effort to teach her baby to take pride in his appearance.

Geordian Abel, 29, gets up at six every morning to apply makeup and style her hair to be an example to her son.

Every morning, the young mother gets dressed up, does her hair, and puts on a full face before selecting a cute outfit for her five-month-old Hutton.

She believes moms should make an effort, even if they plan to just stay at home, because "you never know who you might run into" or who may pop over.

Abel said lockdowns "made people lazy" because they "got into a routine of sitting around the house."

She said: "We got into a routine of sitting around the house, leaving the bed to go to a Zoom call, and not taking pride in how we look.

"I will be honest: I was still working at the time but I got laid off and I went into a spiral."

Abel revealed that she went through a period of staying in her pajamas all day.

However, she soon made the decision to start getting dressed every day whether or not she planned to leave the house.

After waking at 6am, she spends an hour getting ready and having a coffee before Hutton wakes at 7am, when she makes sure he is well dressed too.

Since she shared her controversial views on TikTok, Abel has had a "mixed" response, with some moms saying they live in their pajamas.

Other moms hit back to say the greatest lesson Abel can teach her son is not to care about what other people think.

Abel, a boutique owner who lives with her husband, Austin Abel, 30, in Fort Worth, Texas, said: "I have loved clothes and taking pride in how I dress for as long as I can remember.

"I would watch my mom get dressed and put her makeup on.

"It didn't even matter if she was cleaning the house, she would say: 'You don't know who you are going to run into so you need to look your best.'

"I firmly believe that when you look your best you will feel your best."

Abel explained that she prides herself on her appearance and hopes to instill the same values in Hutton.

She said: "It is going to set him up for success in the years to come with employers.

"For interviewers, a first impression is everything and you never know who you are going to meet."

After tending to her own appearance, Abel dedicates her morning to getting her son ready.

She gives him a bottle and gets him dressed before she leaves for work at 8.30am.

Abel said some people have asked if she will still have this approach when she has more than one child.

Some moms applauded her, saying they have the same view.

"The reaction I get has been pretty 50/50," she admitted.

"There have been a lot of stitch videos people have created with half the screen as me compared to them in their pajamas.

"I believe all of it is in good fun and I respect that we all do it differently.

“There has been a lot of hate but there’s been a lot of good.

"There is also a mix of people saying they respect me but they live in their pajamas and so does their baby."

She continued: “There has been a lot of hate in my DMs, which is interesting.

"A lot of people have expressed that they do not have the time to get their children up, that their kids live in their pajamas, and that it's not about what they wear.

"Personally, getting up and dressed is something that works for us most days.

"Aside from the negative comments, there's also been a ton of good.

"Moms have commented that it has inspired them to wake up an extra 30 minutes earlier, before to get themselves dressed, followed by getting their babies out of their jammies."
