Put on the swimsuit!

With summer officially here, I really enjoyed this article. I think we all know having a baby seriously changes your body, and it's easy to start feeling insecure. Nothing shows off all the parts we feel most insecure about quite like a bathing suit. This article talks about why we as Moms need to embrace our bodies, put on the swimsuits and enjoy our summers! The article talks about how staying covered up and out of the water doesn't just make you have less fun - it makes it so that your kids don't have memories of you playing in the water with them, having fun with them, and just making memories.

I think this ties a lot into an article I read awhile back about how Moms should never ever criticize themselves in front of their children. In their eyes, we are perfect and to point out every one of our flaws to them just makes them start wondering how many flaws they have, what is wrong with them, and passes on insecurities. (I can't remember where that article was, but I will try to find it).

Do you get into a swimsuit and play with your kids in the water? Do you have a swimsuit you LOVE?!

      I don't love being in one... but I don't hate it enough to let it become an issue ;)

      I can't tell you how much I love the last part of your comment Taylor!! Confidence (or a lack of it) is TOTALLY a taught thing. People ask me all the time how I am so confident and I always tell them the truth - at first, I faked it. Then it became real because acting confident made everyone, myself included! start believing in me and my ability to do things.
