for the record (me being mean)

I am not against plastic surgery. I've never had any. I don't know if I will. More than anything, it doesn't fit into our budget. I don't judge or condemn anyone who has had "work." If, however, you are older than me (and we went to school together, so I should know) and your forehead doesn't move, you have not an ounce of dimply skin anywhere, and your skin has never met a crease, you have to understand I will laugh at you--at least behind your back. You're welcome.

Now, for the rest of us, let's take a minute to appreciate the wrinkly skin, fat, stretch marks, and dimples that, by golly, I earned. Those kids were not unceremoniously dropped on my doorsteps, ya' know!

That is all. You may now return to what you were doing.

No plastic surgery over here either. :)

Appreciate might be a strong word. I'm trying to be thankful for what God gave me though.

But I'd not be sad if He dropped a few grand in my lap earmarked "put the Girls back where I intended them"

You should check out www.theshapeofamother.com. Just a spot where women share pics and stories of their bodies post baby.

I technically have had plastic surgery but does a breast reduction count really? Just to feel normal and not be in pain.
