I was talking to one of my sister's in law the other day about weight. She has gained approximately 2 pounds (can't tell!) but was bumming about it. Understandable...I know a very few people who enjoy seeing that number climb. Talking to her helped me realize that ever since having a baby I look at my body very differently. Instead of the flaws (which yes they are there) I see the good parts. My arms already have more definition to them than ever before, for one. That's pretty cool. And those extra pounds? Well, they'll leave. So will my opportunities to kiss certain sweet little cheeks though. Those will leave all too soon and I'd rather not miss a second of them.
Ironically while I was writing this last night Cache texted me saying "come out to the garden" and I went out to find those two lying in the grass enjoying the cloudy evening. We made very small but important talk with darling and soaked in one of those moments you never want to end.
