If you’re a mom, there’s a good chance you don’t have many photos of you with the family. Most of that is because you’re probably the one taking the photo. I know I’m always the one that wants to capture the memory.
I can’t tell you how many times I tell my daughter to not move until I can grab the camera. But every once in awhile I actually want to be in the photo.
Problem is, the majority of these already rare moments ever get seen by anyone.
I’ve been working on finding contentment with my body for years. The truth is I’m at the highest weight I’ve ever been in my entire life.
After having baby number one, I was in complete shock for a while. I had no idea how much my body would change. I knew some of the more common things talked about like stretch marks but there were plenty that came as an unwelcome surprise.
I never lost all of the weight I gained. From not recovering well from my c-section to my baby not nursing and the busyness that parenthood brings, I wasn’t really set up for success in that field.
And then I decided to do something crazy – have another baby!
