Ok, so you ate WAY too many cookies this weekend. You nibbled a bit too much on chocolate. Yea, you probably didn’t need to go for seconds or grab that third dinner roll. But do you think HE cares? Do you think he’ll remember that you felt fat? That you were disappointed you simply ate WAY too much? I mean really.. you did.. pregnant or not.
He’s not gonna care. You know what he WILL remember?
He’ll remember playing with his cousins…
He’ll remember being the caboose…
He’ll remember playing his first game on the iPad.
He’ll also remember opening presents for his new baby cousin. He’ll remember feeling his brother moving in Mommy’s belly. He’ll remember spending hours setting up too many Kung Zhu pieces with Daddy. Cuddling with Grandma on the couch. Watching the grinch. Reading the night before Christmas with his cousin. Drinking "wine" and toasting at dinner. Opening presents. Getting that one thing he wanted for Christmas so badly. Giving gifts he helped wrap and pick out.
Overall he’ll Hopefully remember how lucky he is to have such an amazing, loving family. Maybe you should do the same. Maybe you should stop worrying about your weight and body because at the end of the day it simply doesn’t matter.
All you need to do, all you CAN do, is wake up tomorrow and be the best you can be. Stay conscious, stay present, stay healthy and enjoy the little things. I’m pretty sure he’s not worried about how he looks in these glasses and you shouldn’t worry either. Life is simply too short.
