They say love is blind. While I believe that’s true I still can’t help but feel a bit insecure around my husband at times. Lets face it I’m not the same person I was when we first met. Marriage and seven kids can make even the most confident woman feel off her game most days. I talked in the past about body image after having a baby. I touched on how we as women may view ourselves after having a baby but the thing I failed to mention is how that affects us with our spouses. To be more specific, how we think they view us after having a baby.
My husband doesn’t act any different towards me I actually act differently towards him. I’ve noticed that over the past 9 months since I had Baby J I’m a little self conscious and a bit more meticulous in what I wear even just around the house. I spend my mornings picking out clothes that will hide my unflattering parts. Can we say muffin top? I feel as though how can he be happy with the way I look if I can't accept myself 100%. It makes for some awkward moments let me tell you.
I love being a SAHM but it can be difficult to look and feel your best when you spend your days changing diapers, nursing, arts & crafts, preschool shows that never end and other non-sexy tasks.
Being a mom is the greatest job there is but some times we can lose ourselves in trying to be the best.
I know looks aren't everything and someone out there will think I’m being vain and that’s fine I can live with that but I also know that there is someone out there that feels the same way I do. Right? Don't leave me hanging.
