Real Moms

Reality hurts. In fact it can be down right depressing. If you read my post below, you know that I have been reading this blog. As I'm reading I came across this reality check: Real Mom's have flab. Which is totally ironic because of the discovery I just made.

Since giving birth to Devin 11 1/2 weeks ago, I have found myself short on clothing. In fact I had to go purchase a pair of pants to wear. So, you do the math, I have one pair of pants that I can squeeze my tooshie into. Yesterday I pulled on my pair of pants and noticed that the waist was a little tighter than normal. So, I swore to begin exercizing and I pushed the thought aside.


This morning I hurried and pulled on my pair of pants so I could get Cameron to the bus stop. Again, I noticed the tightness and again I decided to begin sit ups today! (which I haven't begun yet)


In my attempts to expand on my wardrobe rather than my waistline I am sewing myself a pair of pants. I was trying to decide what size I would need to cut the pattern out of. So, I pulled down my pants to read the label. The first word that caught my eye was Men's! What is that word doing on my pants? Wait a minute. These are LL Bean. My pants aren't LL Bean. Slowly, it's beginning to come clear. NOOOOOOOOO!!!!! In all that I hold dear as a mother and a wanna be sex kitten, this cannot be. I AM WEARING MY HUSBANDS PANTS!!! I'VE BEEN WEARING THEM FOR TWO DAYS!!! AND I DIDN'T EVEN NOTICE!!! AND THE WAIST IS TIGHT!!!!


There is a cute scene in one of my favorite movies, While You Were Sleeping, where Lucy says to Jack, "If you fit into my pants I'll kill myself." That's how I feel.



But don't worry. I'm really not suicidal. After all, if I kill myself who else would feed this kid his lunch in front of the TV at 1:34 pm as he's wearing his pajamas?


In conclusion, "Real Mom's Wear Their Husband's Pants." Now that's reality.
