I owe an apology to my husband. I realized this the other night as I was rocking our new baby to sleep. I couldn’t help but think about how amazing it is that my body has grown and nourished three other bodies–our children.
But that didn’t happen without leaving a few changes to MY body. My body is slightly different now than it was 11 years ago when we first started dating. And I felt like I should tell my husband that I’m sorry:
“I’m sorry that my six-pack abs are replaced by my six-week postpartum belly. It is currently serving as a daily reminder that God chose us to to get to be parents to our newest miracle. The one I am feeding with this body. This body that is not the same as the 23-year-old version you married.”
