Pre is post is good – really good
Two days ago – six days before my baby turns six months – I figured the jeans I was wearing were a bit loose, so from the back of my closet I took my pre-pregnancy jeans and a big breath and I tried them on. And you know what? I kept them on because they fit.
I am – TADA – back in my pre-pregnancy jeans and as silly as that may sound to someone who’s never been waiting for that moment it was GREAT! I am a mother of two, I am a wife, I am a friend, I am a daughter, a sister, a cousin and so on, but two days ago I began the journey back to being myself. And as great as it feels being all those other things, I was beginning to really miss being myself and now I have taken a huge step towards it.
I ought to celebrate with cake or ice cream, but I won’t because those jeans are not going back to the back of the closet.
