Today an acquaintance of mine stopped by to see my new son. She wasn't invited but I was ok with the visit at first... About a minute into her visit she put her hand on my belly, jiggled my stomach and laughed. When I showed her that I was uncomfortable with what she just did, she went on to tell me something even more offensive about my new figure. That was very hurtful to say the least. Especially since she followed it up with rude comments and questions about my sons appearance.
As soon as she left I broke down into tears. I know I should ignore comments like that but I just cannot shake the things she told me.
Needless to say, I'm having a rough night but I was encouraged by this photo my aunt just texted me. I think it's beautifully said so I just had to share.
My belly may be looser than it used to be but it housed the most beautiful person in my life for 10 months. That's quite the accomplishment and i would give way more and do it a million times over for this beautiful gift that I get to cradle in my arms.
