I’m Proud… (Ewa)

I’m Proud of my Stretchmarks

Today, after 17 years, my belly looks like this. I´ve been thinking that I should try to dress myself in in yellow, orange and red colours and paint my strechmarks so that they look like flames from a fire or a vulcano erupting on the next Halloween-party I go to….. It gives me great satisfaction to know that I have been able to carry 2 (out of three) lovely children full term and that they have grown into two lovely young ladies which have now reached the age of 17 and 19. The eldest is actually born “breech birth” i.e. with her little “behind” first . So was I and one or two of my brothers and sister. The only one we know for sure is born ” like everybody else” with the head first is my twin brother.

Kind Regards

    Ah, you are so blessed to be able to sit back a bit and see what your girls have turned out like. Must be a nice feeling! And it’s so nice to hear (see) you say you are proud of your stretchmarks, no ifs, ands, buts about it. You sound quite content and your mama belly looks lovely. I have often talked about doing something similar with my stretchmarks…painting them like flames. Stretchmarks are so interesting, so many variations. Thanks for sharing!

    Wow! What a flat tummy!!! I have little stretchmarks on my tummy, too. I think they’re beautiful reminders of my daughter. I love reading uplifting comments from other moms. You go, girl!
