If you are not the least bit chubby and you are a mom, pick up your right foot and stomp it down REAALLY hard on your left ... there ... I feel better!
Michelle Kemper Brownlow: I'm going to try to solve this mystery.
Imagine you're out to lunch with friends. The waiter comes, and this is what ensues ...
"I would like crushed teddy grahams and warm grapes -- could you add a little couch fuzz to those grapes? Thanks.
"Then I will have the cold grilled cheese ... hold the middles, please, I really only like the crust. With extra milk dripped on to make them nice and soggy. Thanks.
"Dessert: I am going to try the PB & Fluff on graham crackers. And, could you lick some of the Fluff from around the corners to 'neaten' them up? And a big glass of warm milk with floaters."
Chubby Mom Solution = WE EAT THEIR LEFTOVERS!
But isn't it typical mom-stress that keeps us stuffing our faces?
Case in point ... I found the cutting boards UNDER the couch cushions. Did I crave fresh fruit salad or a SONIC burger?
The day my toddler shaved his nose, did my stomach call out for eight lightly salted almonds or an eight-layer chocolate cake?
Do you see where I am going with this? It's all about STRESS!!
Cindy Crawford was on "The View" and mentioned how after two kids, she doesn't dance in a bikini for her husband anymore. She could dance in a bikini INSIDE my left pant leg!!
I am off to start dinner. I am thinking
extra cheesy enchiladas, corn cake and pico de gallo, a side of chips and guac, and an 8-layer chocolate cake a leaf of lettuce and an apple.
Here's to me! Chubby moms ROCK!
