Badges of honour

I love my belly right now.

Even if I'll never be able to wear anything that shows my stomach off because of the stretch marks.

Each silver and red mark is my mummy "badge" - from the high tiger claw ones Ianto left, to the smaller mottled ones Cookie's been leaving.

I dont love my body sometimes, but I do love its ability to grow my children.

  1. You are so right! After giving birth to 3 live daughters, and a few more pregnancies than that, my belly looks like a complex road map of stretch marks. I am so proud of the fact that they represent my body's ability to nurture life. We should celebrate our Mummy bodies!


Thank you for reading!
