Ladies and Gentlemen? We have stretch marks!

Well. I have stretch marks. WOO. Actually, I had quite a bit from my pregnancy with LilZ and I really don’t mind them at all. It’s funny, once they heal up, they are kinda pretty, in my eyes. They have a silverish tone that I think is just a shiney way of telling the world about my parenthood. I like them.

Now – I would have been happy to not have anyMORE though, that’s for sure. Oh well. You can’t gain this much weight and not get at least a few. At least they have good company.

One time (pre-MrZ) I was laying out by the pool, sort of flirting with some guy (shhh…I know!) and LilZ (who was 4 or 5 at the time) came out of the pool, came over to me, and started COUNTING my STRETCH MARKS. I was like, “Um..hee hee…how cute. But Momma would rather you NOT point those out, thanks!”

Kids. They make dating quite interesting.

    Oh God, that’s funny. Remember those Quaker Chewey granola bar commercials? (at a wedding, kid says, “My mom says she can’t believe you’re wearing white!” or at a family picnic, “The man in the store cut up all mom’s credit cards ysterday!”) Counting mom’s stretch marks in front of a hot guy definitely could have gotten LilZ on TV…

    I don’t understand why I DON’T have any stretch marks! I assumed they hadn’t come in yet because it wasn’t time, until a friend exclaimed in shock at the sight of them NOT being there. I dont’ get it – I got a few after I gained some weight when I quit smoking 5 years ago and I do actually have some NOW on my breasts, but not on my stomach. I don’t understand!

    Furthermore, stretch marks were the LEAST of my worries – I could care less if I get them. I am MUCH more worried about having a colicky baby or not being able to nurse or having post-partum depression! I would rather have the stretch marks!
