Peaches and Cream ... and a Girdle

Here's the latest security blanket I've listed in the shop. Over the last few weeks I've sold a lot of security blankets, so I decided it's time to restock. But between doctor's appointments and Valentine's Day and play dates, this is the only one I got finished this week. More should be coming to the shop next week.

In other news, I finally broke down and bought a girdle. To all of my friends who read this and have not yet had babies: a girdle is a terrible yet wonderful invention that puts everything back in place that isn't there anymore after having a baby. I've spent the last two years doing every variation of the sit-up that fitness magazines have ever published and have finally been forced to admit defeat. That extra "stuff" doesn't seem to have anywhere to go and just doesn't want to morph back into muscle. SO, given the fact that we have a "black-tie optional" wedding to attend tonight, and the fact that I don't feel like spending 4 hours "sucking-it-in," I bought a girdle, and I LOVE IT!!! It's like having my old body back, minus the ability to take deep breaths. But I can forego being fully oxegynated for a few hours if it means not looking several months pregnant in my nice new dress. Happy Friday everyone!

OK, I'm laughing/crying. First, I'm tired. Second, I was just thinking about the same thing today whilst doing yoga...where is the flat belly????????? Have a great time at the wedding!

We went to a fun indoor park today (it's zero degrees), and Hal went into one of those "ball crawl" thingies. It was pretty fun, although I kept thinking he was going to drown in all those balls.
