I was dressing for Christmas eve service, and I wanted to wear one black skirt. (Ok, I can't believe I am admitting this on a public blog!) With this skirt, I wear control top tights... well... because my tummy just ain't the way it used to be before it carried five babies. So, I wear this.
Well, this night I couldn't find them. Likely because my room was a mess! :) So my daughter watched me search. Finally she asked, "mommy, why do you wear your tight tights?"
"Oh, honey, they just make my tummy look a little smaller."
She tried to comfort me, "Mommy, you look really beautiful the way you are. It will be ok."
I know. It is just that my tummy looks better in jeans... so I muttered a "I know, thanks" as I continued to hunt.
She watched for a little bit more and then said, "But mommy, I know a way to make your tummy look smaller without your tight tights!"
"Easy mommy, just run."
Thanks child. Thanks. That made me feel really good.
