There is Beauty in My Flaws (Melissa)

January 27, 2009

so here is a picture of my two sons and myself…my lovely tummy after the damage of having two children in under a year..exactly 11 months to the day apart to be literal. To my boys, I am the most beautiful mommy in the whole world and when they ask me about my stretch marks or extra skin, I tell them that it’s from them growing in my uterus and my body stretching to give them the best home I could. They love to look at pregnant bellies, watch the birthing video’s on youtube and we talk about THIS baby *my third* growing inside my tummy now. My kids don’t look at my tummy with shame, they look at me with pride and knowledge..they know I gave them my body and in turn, they give me their love. I am proud to carry my flaws, they are a small price to pay for the love I get in return. ~Melissa

    the way you put it is so beautiful! i wish everyone could look at it your way! i am one of the “lucky” ones who bounced back quickly – into my regular clothes and weight within about a week of giving birth, even after the second pregnancy which was twins. but even if i hadn’t i agree with you – i’ll take the trade anyday!

    Your boys will grow up to be some wonderful men who appreciate a real woman’s beauty instead of what is portrayed as beautiful on TV, magazines etc. I tell you, you are truly beautiful, and I would love to have the confidence you do.
