Who said Mom's can't be sexy?
That is what I said to myself today when I tried this out. I wanted to feel sexy on my date with my husband, so I put on these fabulous leather heels. I couldn't even walk for goodness sake! I didn't take them off though, don't you worry. I wore them and I worked them...even if I was wobbling. I swear, every time I took a step I felt like I could have just about been walking on stilts.
In the end, it doesn't matter how much you have changed or how much your body has changed in the process of making a family. When it comes down to it you have to look and see what you have in exchange. I was complaining to my husband last night about how I would love to look like I used to in my bikini, or in an evening dress...but you know what? Look what I have, I have an amazing son, and a pretty good body to show after it. I will probably never look like I did when I was in college, but do I really want to? I wouldn't trade anything for what I have. And you know what, I don't think my husband would either.
When I came home tonight after our date, I took off my heels and awaited my valentine's day present (we celebrated today.) I saw a Victoria's Secret bag. I expected lingerie, but instead I got the most wonderful pj set I could ever imagine. It is so incredibly comfortable, while at the same time sexy. I was so impressed with my husband and appreciative to have someone that doesn't mind seeing me in my comfy mom clothes all the time! So tonight I will relish in having an amazing husband, a beautiful son, and a great life.
