So yesterday while on my fabulous girls night out with one of my dearest friends I discovered a new fear...swim suit shopping...
I used to LOVE buying swim suits (not that I ever enjoyed wearing them out in public - but I certainly liked buying them). I have an entire collection of adorable teeny tiny bikinis that I should probably just give away at this point in my life. But while we were out I decided that I needed a new swim suit so that I can take Chase swimming for the first time this summer. So I browsed around and found this cute one piece suit that didn't look too "grandma-ish" and went to try it on.
Well let me tell you, post-baby bodies and swim suits DO NOT MIX. I don't think I have ever looked so terrible in anything in my entire life. It made me realize that I am at least 10 lbs away from swimming ready and that in addition to that even if I am back to my pre-baby weight there probably isn't a suit in the world that will cover all of my stretch marks, cellulite, saggy parts, and other nice leftovers that I still have from growing another human being.
So I guess I have to ask other moms that are out there - do they sell a swimming sweat suit? Or a swimming box? Or maybe a swimming mu-mu? If so where can I invest in one?
