I mother earth

The other day I took a good long look at my post pregnancy body - I was a little disheartened. I stared at my belly and thought hateful thoughts about it. Later that day I was talking to Oliver and out of no where he said "Mom, I like your belly. I like your belly because it can make babies."

I like Oliver's take on it better than mine. He's changed my mind about the whole thing. My belly has brought me so much happiness and joy. I think I like my belly too.

There's a reason Spanx is the number one seller in women's under apparel right now so don't be disheartened. And yes your belly has brought forth some beautiful children.

Congratulations, Char! I think I saw you from a distance in Edmonton a while ago, and you looked pretty great. Keep active, and hang in there. There's so much that's beautiful about you. Your blog too, btw.

Your body/belly has created three beautiful children - the joy of your life. Recognize the wonderful gift of both. You are beautiful.
