From the Mouths of Babes...Like it or Not

So, I wear thigh high compression stockings thanks to my vein issues. For those of you who know me well, you know that I'm my "meatiest" in the thigh and buttocks region. As I was putting one of the stockings on the other day, Scarlett noticed a little bit of my meat hanging over the top of the stocking leading to this fun exchange:

Scarlett: (giggling) There's a bump right there!

Me: Yep.

Scarlett: Why?

Me: It's baby fat. Your body puts on a little more fat when you have a baby in your tummy.

Scarlett: Will it go away?

Me: I hope so.

Scarlett: How?

Me: I'll just exercise and try to eat right.

Scarlett: But you already do that.

Me: I know. I guess I'll just try to work harder.

Scarlett: Yah, your bum is a little bigger, but that's okay.

Me: Yah, that's okay.

HAHA! That is funny. Kids are so blunt. Macey is still asking me if I have a baby in my tummy. I haven't lost the baby weight yet!

It always takes me a long while to take it off. I tend to gain weight nursing because I always feel like I'm starving. I hope this fourth pregnancy doesn't do me in permanently. I can only imagine how hard it would be after twins!!!

Love that story. Love that Scarlett!! And it probably will take a little longer, but you will get back to your trim, fit self again because you do work so hard!
