There are moments when I look at myself in the mirror and wish I was twenty-nine again. Oh, to have a flat stomach; one without c-section scars and the extra layer of flesh that rounds me out. But then, I gaze at my kids and think, the scars and the extra pounds were more than worth it. Babies change your body in ways that...well, let's just say, that aren't flattering. BUT, babies change your heart, mind and soul in ways that are awe inspiring.
There's just something magical about the bond of mother and child... something that makes every sacrifice well worthwhile, even the extra bulge.
I may not look as good at the pool, but I wouldn't change it for anything in the world. :)
