When I was pregnant my girls would always say, “Mom, you’re not fat you’re just pregnant.” I probably talked about being huge more than I thought I did. I really felt enormous.
I was sitting on the couch with Faith (age 10) holding Bobby (one week old) when, (I don’t know what possessed me.) I asked Faith if she thinks I’m fat now. “Yeah…just a little fat,” she responded meekly.
I burst out laughing. “Jason,” I yelled upstairs to him, “Faith thinks I’m a little fat. Is that what you think?”
“No,” he called back.
“Yes he does. He just doesn’t say it!” Faith set matters straight! I’m inclined to agree with my daughter. If you want the truth just ask a child! Since it’s too soon to begin a new workout. I think I’ll enjoy another treat! 😉

nursing a newborn and caring for 4 other children sounds like a workout to me (o:
the “left-over” is just nursing fuel… give it 3 months, you wont even be able to tell! 🙂 concentrate on getting moments of rest, and know that any extra calories, they go straight to your boobs! (lol!!)
Enjoy those treats while you’re nursing!
I don’t have an excuse… Kids just straight out tell me I’m fat!
My youngest daughter once told me that I had “pillows”!

My 4 year old just likes to tell me I have a big big belly, and now that we’re close to 19 weeks pregnant he says its a round ball.
It’s never the same once you have kids…they tell you exactly what they are thinking, good, bad or ugly! 🙂

I’ve had my little ones come up to my post birth belly and pat it and ask when that baby was going to come out. If you don’t laugh you will cry and laughing is so much better!

You’re fine. Give yourself time to recuperate.
