My 10 year old, Dylan: “Mom, your stomach looks like a balloon blown up really big and then let go, but feels like leather.”
Well thank-you…thank-you very much. ?
I just laughed. I mean he was just being honest! Glad my son saw first hand what “mommy bellies” looks like. This kid isn’t going to be confused when his wife ends up having a belly like mine after having a child. I could be totally down and depressed with how my stomach looks, but I’m not defined by what my stomach looks like behind my shirt. Glad my husband met me with a stomach like this (Dylan was 8 months old) and still loves me and my leather like stomach even after 3 more kids. I remember when we first started dating, and I’d stress about always covering my stomach or wanting the lights turned off. He said, “Your stomach looks absolutely fine. You did have a baby!” Amen to that! Here’s to all the ladies with marked up leathery stomachs!
