Willpower

So today after dinner it finally happened... Kelly pointed to my still not gone tummy (where baby Preston used to live) and said, "Mom why do you still have that."

Hmmmm... I tried not to pause or look shocked, I quickly responded that I am really a bear and I have to save as much fat as possible in order to survive this winter season. Well actually I didn't say that, although I would have liked to. Instead I was mostly honest and said, "After moms have babies it takes a while for their tummies to go away."

If I was being totally honest I would have said, "You see sweetheart your mommy likes donuts and brownies with ice cream and on a really crappy day she could probably down half of a French Silk Pie!" then I could continue it with: "You see Kelly, your mother has NO willpower" and If I really wanted to scare her I could have finished it with "Statistics show that you will most likely inherit this tummy that I have, because I will probably be passing on my bad habits to you. So treasure your cute little waist while you can sweetie"

So there you have it. In a few more months I will no longer be able to blame this tummy on Preston. I will have to take responsibility for my lack of Willpower. Maybe a good way to start would be to stop blogging right now and go downstairs and play Dance Dance Revolution with Adam and the kids... I've gotta start somewhere.

Lol, you crack me up. I need to hang around you more often so some of it will rub off on me.
I'm hoping that having a baby at the very beginning of summer doesn't mean me avoiding a bathing suit all next summer!

Oh my gosh! I just LOVE you! You need to write professionally. You have the perfect way of putting my thoughts into words - every time. My mom and I sat here cracking up reading this little post. I just love you. :)
