yesterday, the kids and i got home from the gym and mimi climbed up onto the couch, let out a big sigh, and said, "mama, can you please turn on sesame street? i just need to sit here, have a snack, and relax." my first reaction was to giggle and think, oh yeah, it is just so tough to be (almost) three. but i gave in and turned on her show. i figure if she is actually telling me that she needs a little down time, it's probably true. just so long as she doesn't try that line on me every day!
on another, totally separate, note, i am trying out megan's "you go girl day" idea. i have had this dress in my closet for a while now and have yet to wear it until now. it is much tighter than anything i normally wear. and that, plus horizontal stripes, are enough to scare someone who still has a bit of baby belly left to lose into not wearing their cute, new-to-them dress. but what the hell. i'm going to wear it and embrace my shape. i might not have a flat belly (ever again!), but i'll take my kids over a hot bod any day!
i hope you all have an awesome day!
