A Quote from My Dad (Anonymous)

February 13, 2009

Last night we were contemplating my navel–now an outie! and my dad said the following: Mom’s belly didn’t go back down, it has all these burbley folds and rumples, and her breasts are stretched, too. Every time I look at her, I think–5 babies!! This woman gave me FIVE BABIES! And every time I see her, I am touched and filled with love.

I found that quote so beautiful, how he finds all her baby-ness a source of inspiration and love.

    My father feels the exact same way about my mother. And my husband feels the same way about my stretched marked belly! We are so blessed to have such men in our lives!
