The Eyes--All seeing, all knowing, full of wisdom--those crows feet tell the world we can laugh--at ourselves and at our kids! They represent late nights spent making a costume or baking 10 dozen cupcakes for the bake sale.
Upper arms--AKA the world's best security blanket--What child doesn't love to zone out rubbing the back or your soft upper arm? Your arms are strong enough to stir up cookie dough and to carry a sleeping child--who cares about toning and sculpting. Right? Right????
That droopy middle region--soft and pillowy, perfect comfort for a toddler or a teenager. Who wants a skinny mama?
Those hips--pity the poor men who have to carry a squirming two year old and have no hips to rest them on! They also help hold a laundry basket while the other hand wipes a nose or catches the cat!
Plush derrière--seriously--you're gonna spend countless hours in bleachers listening to the band, cheering on the team or waiting for practice to be over--enjoy your added comfort!
Thunder thighs--a comfy place to hold two little kids or added room to spread out the prom dress you are hemming 10 minutes before the date arrives.
Those legs--perfectly proportioned for little arms to wrap themselves around.
Callused feet--can you imagine how it would feel to step on a Barbie shoe or a Lego if your feet were soft and smooth?
So just for today--embrace the 'you' that motherhood has made. Worry about appearances tomorrow!
And thanks girls for making me a mom! Love you beyond words!
