I’d never have children!
When I was younger I would always tell my parents I’d never have children!
Now that I’m in my 30’s and have two beautiful girls, I laugh at how silly and naive I was. Having my girls has truly changed my life for the better in every way, and I am beyond grateful to be their mother.
Although nothing can prepare you for motherhood and the changes your body undergoes, it is truly amazing what a mothers body is capable of. I sometimes have to remind myself of this when I’m picking my body apart negatively.
So for every stretch mark, piece of loose skin, or extra roll we just can’t seem to “get rid” of, remember our children still look at us with the same love no matter what shape or size we are.
