Now here's a shocker of a post,yes?? This motivational speaker is speaking to a Holistic Mom's group tonight and out of my scratch pad of notes on the subject appeared this poem/ode/rap song (hahaha)! Just thought I'd throw it out there to all of our readers for a change of pace.
Hemorrhoids, indigestion, zits all over my chin,
The joy of eating big and not holding my stomach in!
Waited for them, didn’t see them, “Stretch marks” I would tell ‘em
“Won’t dare appear with coconut schmear”, like a big greased watermelon.
Taught step class and aerobics up to the bitter end
And learned that inner thigh work was really NOT my friend.
You see the hormone called Relaxin loosens lower body joints
So no inner thighs or heavy lifting – 2 very crucial points!
Ninth month, hot July, ten days overdue,
The best relief was floating free in our warm Gulf waters of blue.
I’ll never forget the connection I felt to the entire Animal Kingdom
Or the shifting of our future … with just the absence of a condom.
One birth was Steve, the other Sam, the apples of my eye
I gave them all the best I have, my wallet…flat it lies.
Let's hope this group tonight has a sense of humor!
