Can you guess what my New Year's resolution is going to be?
My wonderfully talented son drew a self portrait of yours truly. I thought he was doing a great job, trying to be very detailed oriented on the upper lip and my nose and eyes. But what exactly happened when he started drawing the shape of my face I have no idea. After drawing my prominent pointy chin he drew a conspicuous droopy line underneath it.
"What is that Tobie?"
"Your other chin, you know, right there." he said while pointing up to the mass of flesh dangling from my first chin.
"Oh geez...", is what I was thinking. I kept positive for the sake of his budding artistic interest, but inside I was dying of embarrassment and shame. I know he thinks that I am beautiful, he tells me so. But one day he is going to look at this picture (because I intend to keep it) and realize that mommy had weight issues.
It's an uphill battle and I'm still on my way. It's not really a new New year's resolution. It's a new resolve to make this getting in shape thing work.
I'm not throwing in the towel yet. This fat lady isn't singing!
Oh yeah, and flossing. I'm going to floss every day. Those are my resolutions for 2010.
I am a SAHM of 5; Tobie, Miriam, Emma, Hannah and Charlotte. We live the military life through the Coast Guard. Semper Paratus! We love having the opportunity to explore this wonderful country of ours and make great new friends along the way.
