<----I vow to not let myself get to this :)
Ani DiFranco has a line that I try to remember whenever I see the state of my stomach: "I've got highways for stretch marks, see where I've grown." If only I could remember this when I realize that none of my pants fit and that I am going to have to go buy all new pants before I start work again in a few weeks.
When I look at Alex though, all those stretch marks and extra weight gain is totally worth it. Although it would be pretty awesome if all this extra baby weight would just fall off, without my needing to diet or exercise.
