Well, this post could definitely go on one of my other blogs, but since it is in reference to maternity and pregnancy...if you are a Mama who is all firm and toned and clean and hip and organized when you have a new baby, please just try to play along and imagine...
Ok, so you know the whole time when you just had a baby (day one through, oh those first few harrowing years LOL) and you don't know what to wear, cuz you have these huge insane boobs now and this blubby stomach now and this horrifying, weird out of shape butt now , you are tired and sore and yet each postpartum time, its always about the seeming security and comfort of jeans and pants and yet lets get real with just how gross they look......they do! I am here to tell you all, that this time, after I have the baby, I am saying NO to the torture and agony and hideousness of the whole pants thing and changing up the postpartum scene with SKIRTS.
Imagine, some cool or fun tshirt, soft and longish, please...and soft and flowy and comfortable skirt, and maybe some slip on shoes like birkenstocks, converse, or even those thingies that everyone wears, the little plastic clogs. Cute, fun, simple, and noone needs to know the horrors of your body from the ribs to the ankles except your dear partner---oh who am I kidding, pretty much the baby is all who gets up close and personal with this Mama for a while--and they just so happen to love fat larduous soft and fluffy Mommy, so its all Win-Win! Manage to put on some deodorant and brush yer teeth and youre waaaaaaay ahead of the game! Now go on with yer sassy self and run that errand! People will think you are awesome--and you are!--but this time you will look CUTE instead of PITIABLE.
I absolutely will not play the big weird jeans game with this newborn. It is ugly and depressing and painful and yucky. I will be lounging or sitting cross-legged 12+ times a day nursing this lil darling and it will NOT be in some hard stupid jeans. Or capris. Or "yoga" pants. Or sweats. hideous, unflattering, sad. My belly, booty, thighs, knees, and well lets face it, calves too are all gonna be my own special secret ; ) In a comfy and cute skirt, T shirt, and slip on shoes.
