when the one man loves the one woman, and the one woman loves the one man, the very angels leave heaven and come sit in that house and sing for joy.
after i had crosby, one of the doctors in the hospital told me that it takes at least six months to get "unpregnant". here i am 10 months later with 15 pounds still to go. articles like the one below make me a little less frustrated with the stubborn baby weight. maybe my new body is simply showing people that i can love like no other.
the post is about how the show "up all night", which was created by new mothers, is redefining the way women's bodies are portrayed on television.
here is an excerpt:
"Normal, that’s funny. Like there will ever be a normal again. Like baby weight is a condition you can cure. Christina Applegate’s baby was born over a year ago; by Hollywood’s standards, she should have lost the baby weight 11 months ago. But maybe this isn’t baby weight—maybe it’s the new Christina. A woman whose life has changed and her body has changed to reflect that; she hasn’t simply “gained weight”…….her body has morphed into a bearer of life."
