I saw a story on Facebook today.  Yes I know, don’t believe everything you read/see on the internet.  But I can really relate to this particular story, and I think many of you moms out there can too.

You may have seen the story about the young mom, who happens to be the same age as me.  She wore a bikini for the first time since she had kids to the beach.  A couple of grown men came upon her and started making fun of her, and kicking sand at her because of her stretch marks.  I completely get it.  I am proud of that mom for staying strong in front of those guys.

I myself were a bikini.  I have a lot of stretchmarks and a little bulge that I tend to call my non baby baby bump.  The way I see it is, my kids gave me the stomach I have today, and if someone doesn’t like it, they do not have to look at it.  They can turn away.  I am beautiful, and sexy.  Oh and yes I’m a mom, and a great mom at that.

Being a mom is nothing to be ashamed of.  In fact most guys actually think it is sexy.
