Have you heard about MOM SEXY? My bloggy sis*, The Mommyologist, is on a mission to bring Mom Sexy back. For moms to be comfortable in their own skin and still feel sexy.
So, this week, to celebrate her blogoversary, she is asking us to tell all the reasons we are still MOM SEXY, despite the changes in our mom bodies and routines. You can click over to her blog to find out how to participate!
There was a time recently when I actually did feel sexy. I was all dressed up for my baby brother’s wedding. Loved my dress, rocked HIGH high heels for the first time in YEARS, hair did, make-up on, fabulous matching wrap and earrings. I was SEXY.
But, my youngest got sick and puked straight down the front of my dress. Yet, I was still MOM SEXY.
I felt this the most as I headed into the restroom to attempt to clean myself up as best as I could. Because at the sinks were two girls crying their eyes out. One going on about some guy who wasn’t there with her but she had wanted as her date. And the other moaning that her date was paying more attention to one of the bridesmaids than to her. My Hubs was off cleaning up our pukey toddler because he’s DAD SEXY. And I wouldn’t have wanted to trade my life for theirs, despite the fact that their bellies hadn’t been stretched by three babies and their boobs were still perky. And neither was covered with puke. Because I’m confident in what I have in my life. MOM SEXY, baby.
We fled to the mini-van(I may drive a mini-van, but I’m still MOM SEXY) where Hubs gave me his shirt to wear and I stashed my dress as far away from me as I could get it. Driving home in nothing but his shirt, even if I did stink of baby puke…you guessed it, still MOM SEXY.
But, for my day-to-day look, I may have pairs of sweats that I consider my “good” sweats and rock a ponytail more than any other hairstyle, but I can still be MOM SEXY.
may never will never be back in a size 0 or even a size 2 without major surgery but I can still be confident in my curves and love being soft and of course, be MOM SEXY.
It’s not about what we wear or if we are in desperate need of a root touch-up or if we need to lose the baby weight from the baby who is now in kindergarten- it’s about attitude. So, decide to be MOM SEXY!
*The Mommyologist is not my actual sister, just my bloggy one. We’ve known each other in blogland almost since the beginning of her blog and were roomies at a conference together. If random.org decides to pull my number as the winner of her Mom Sexy contest, you cannot cry nepotism. She’s had plenty of other contests that I have not won.
