all about the STRETCH

I love things that stretch- I can't tell you when the last time was that i bought pants without that touch of forgiving stretch-- like my fabulous editor pants from express (worth every dollar-get yourself a pair!)--why-- they are just better after all can take the abuse of an early pregnancy body, a post partum body, a "should be back to pre-pregnancy by now but not" body and come out none the worse. STRETCH is also the best part about being a mom-- every day you get a little stretch-- the areas aren't always the same --sometimes it is in good ways, sometimes in ways you'd rather not -- but being a mother never leaves you where you are- it requires you to cover immense spans with patience, with humilty, with courage, and simply with yourself.And as much as I love my pants for covering me in all my less than perfect spots (junk in the trunk (and i mean literal junk) and that less than taut tummy), i love being a mom for helping me overcome my less than perfect self...Stretch- i couldn't live without.

You are SO right, Les! And I cannot wait to get back into stretchy "forgive-a-size" Express pants. :-)
