Oh my. I actually laughed out loud at "like a puppy." I also feel a twinge of sadness at how much I can relate... :)

I'll include this quote in my post-partum checks...hopefully this "belly laugh" will brighten others day as it has mine. Thx for sharing!


Post partum belly...if you've ever made homemade bread, the point where you punch it down and knead it and it's all scooshie and floppy...exactly like my belly the first few weeks after babies.
