There was a safe option. I am covered, mostly, by the long-limbed daughter I am holding. We are laughing and feeling good about ourselves and what we are doing. I am so glad she is by my side and that The Husband supports our participation in such an important project.
But this was the safe option. The 4th Trimester Bodies Project isn't about safe. It's about pushing boundaries and challenging the status-quo. It's about normalizing motherhood and bodies and loving ourselves and our bodies.
So we passed on safe and went with sassy. We went with strong.
