When Daylight’s Saving Time hits is usually about the time I realize I am going to be escorting my children to the pool on a regular basis in a mere two month’s time. Therefore, I must shed the extra pounds not-so-discretely hidden under my winter sweaters.
When you ask your wife/mother/partner/Bombshell what she wants for Mother’s Day, there’s a 9 to 1 chance that she says, “Oh, I’m happy just knowing you and the kids are safe, happy, and healthy.”
Whether the object of your affection is your mother, an aunt, your sister or a close friend, choosing the perfect gift for Mother’s Day can be a challenging task.

You’re thinking, “Not with these stretch marks and saggy boobs or my koala pouch belly.” I don’t want to hear it. We are beautiful because we are mothers, not in spite of the fact.
We are strong. We have fought, and conquered, mental and physical battles that our less-experienced counterparts couldn’t imagine. We’ve learned, first hand, the beauty of what the female body can create—surviving weeks, if not months, of nausea and food aversions, followed by ravenous hunger and the exponential growth of our bellies as we nourished an entire other being inside of us.
