Ahhhh, summertime. A time to let kids be kids, run free, play in the water, get sun-kissed, eat hot dogs and s’mores, stay up late around the camp fire and just have an all around good time.
There is one thing I WON’T do – I WILL NOT sit out on the fun just because I don’t look like a stick insect or a perfect 10 in my bathing suit. I will NOT tell my kids no when they want me to run through the splash pad with them, or play in the beach, or run and jump off the dock!
I will NOT sit all wrapped up in a towel or cover up, feeling insecure. Heck it’s my summer too…and the days when my kids want me to play with them are numbered. And I work full time. So yes, when it’s time to play, it’s time to play!! I’ve had 3 kids. I like to eat. I’m a size 14/16. My body is far from perfect. Will I let that ruin the fun this summer? HECK NO.
