At this time of year, when so many of us think about new year resolutions and losing weight, for which I have never set myself goals but was determined to this coming new year, I want to share this funny, telling, moment with you.
As I was combing my hair tonight after showering, my shirt raised up and exposed my tummy .... my daughters laughed a bit and the following conversation commenced:
Abbie ..."I see your belly"
Me ... "yeah, probably so."
Abbie ..."it's kinda chubby."
Me ... "Yeah, I know, that's why I need to lose some weight."
Emily ... "You can't do that."
Me ... "What? Lose weight? I need to."
Emily ... "Well, you can't because then you can't give Mommy hugs."
Both girls then gave me warm squishy hugs ... how can a mom compete with that?
May your final week of the 2010 bring you many, many happy moments and good luck in setting, and achieving, goals for the new year!
