Lessons in self-esteem from a baby.

My mom and I took Parker to the pool the other day and it made me second guess every single calorie I have ever put in my mouth during my entire life. I am also going to start a campaign to bring back the bathing costumes from the 1800s as soon as I get back from the gym.

As hard as it is to love the "mom bod" I realized that there's a lot I can learn from Parker when it comes to self image and how I see myself.

Thighs are a sign of prosperity. Parker has some of the most thunderous thighs you've ever seen and he gets a lot of love for them. I am so infatuated with them that I'd kind of like to stuff them and mount them on my wall.

You are gorgeous. You haven't understood self-love until you've seen my son find his reflection in something. It's like he's reuniting with his best friend after years of separation. There's giggles, high-fives, and full on making out. He likes what he sees and he doesn't care who knows it.

It's very hard to capture this love affair on camera because it's just so passionate.

Nothing can make you unattractive. Snot caked on your face? Diaper full of toxic waste? Food smeared from head to toe? It doesn't matter, everyone loves you and you know it.

Listen up, friends. To me, you are perfect. Now get out there and free those thighs, embrace that bed head, and go make out with yourself in the mirror. You are one mighty fine looking babe today and it's time to conquer the world.


  1. I absolutely love this!! :) You are awesome!

  2. Ha! Well put. The things babies teach us, right? Love those chunky thighs!

  3. I love this! THE THIGHS, THOUGH.

  4. This is awesome! And it's beyond appearances too. Feel like banging a toy on the floor repeatedly for 5 minutes? Go right agead! Want to squeal with delight at the most insignificant thing that still makes you happy? Squeal your heart out!

  5. This is so hilarious. I've often had the thought that only a baby could pull off being so stinking cute, even as he's got vomit dribbling down the side of his face.

  6. You got it!!
    I'm gonna be a full on baby today!!
