We are officially in the hot "dog days" of summer.
Which means the kids want to cool off in water.
Pretty much any water they can find.

Which don't get me wrong, is Awesome.
Especially the beach.   I do love the beach.

But it also means, mama has to spend a lot of time in her bathing suit.
I bought a new one this year, since I haven't been pregnant for over  4 years now, I figured it was time to trade in from the maternity one.

Swimsuit shopping is so much fun.
Said no one ever.


Now I consider myself to have a healthy self esteem - I've had 3 kids all via C Section, and I don't look 20 anymore:  but I certainly am no Beach Bunny anymore.


But most of me is still where it should be at least.
I try not to let such things get to me worked up though.   Honestly, the last thing I want inscribed on my tombstone would be in relation to the size of my ass.
I would hope there would be more important and interesting things about me.

It's a Freebie week.   Someone sent me this song via email, and I got such a kick out of it.

Hating your body will never get you as far as LOVING it will.
Embrace beautiful you.
