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.
