Last night I was pampered. First I got to rest my eyes on the couch after dinner-this cloudy weather has zapped ANY energy that I had at the beginning of the summer! Then my littlest one (Emmy) decided to rub my back. It was so sweet!!! Before I knew it, the side of my t-shirt had revealed my side....and then the fun began. It sounded something like this:
"EEW, why do you have ribbons and streamers on your skin Mom? Do those hurt? Why aren't they tan like your other skin?" -asks Emmy
"Well honey, those are called stretch marks and I got them because I've been pregnant 4 times and have 5 kids (note that there is a bit of irritation in my tone)."-I calmly reply
"Disgusting"-says Emmy with a giggle
"Yes they are!"-I sigh
At this point I hear a muffled laugh from the kitchen-Derek/Daddio is on the computer thoroughly enjoy this exchange.
"You've got a jiggly part Mom."-Emmy then points out as she starts to knead the loose skin around my midde
"Please stop doing that."-I request-I mean come on!! Like I don't know that skin is flabby!!
More laughter and conversation about the skin ensues and then.......
"Mom, what is that in your hair?"-Emmy questions
"That is a gray hair."-Daddio gives his two sense
"No Dad, it's a piece of popcorn"-Emmy shrieks with laughter
And you know what, it really was a piece of popcorn. Know what else...I have no idea how it got there.
