Too many of us moms are so insecure with ourselves. We need to stop.
You are all beautiful creations.
I had a baby and my belly is chunky and jiggly.... so what. you created life in that chunky belly. You created YOUR child in that belly. Isn't that so worth it to have a not so perfect body anymore.
I will be the first to say, I used to be 115 lbs, perfect shape, could wear anything. yes, I am not FAT now.. but I am not tiny anymore either. I am healthy and there's good reason for it. I have stretch marks on my lower belly. and I am proud of them. I birthed 4 beautiful children that call me mama now. I would take that over a "perfect" body any day.
my kids are there for me when I need a hug, kiss or laugh. My "perfect" belly isn't.
My kids need me to feel protected, nurtured and safe.. my belly doesn't.
my kids run through the door with open arms after school and give me the biggest hug... my belly doesn't.
my kids smile at me every morning and say good morning mama... my belly doesn't.
my kids smile and say thank you mom after Any nice gesture I do for them... my belly doesn't
my kids trust me and say I will ask mom she knows everything... my belly doesn't
my kids will be there one day when I am older and need them to protect me... my belly won't
So what if you have not so perfect perky breast, stretch marks, not that flat of a belly anymore and can't fit into size "0" pants. We aren't 15 anymore. We are adults caring for one of the best things in the world. THAT should make you feel on top of the world.
Look at yourself in the mirror today and say I AM BEAUTIFUL.... Because you are.....
