Swimsuit issues...Definitely not Sports Illustrated!!
Monday, July 23, 2012
This Friday, my son has a trip planned to the local water park and they are asking for chaperones and drivers. Of course my first instinct was "Yes, I'd love to go and have some one on one time with him!!" For those that don't know, I have 4 kids and love the special times when I can put all of my attention on just one:) Then self doubt reared it's ugly head-OMG, I'll have to wear a swimsuit and I always hide this body as much as possible when in public. Not only that, but when I do wear a bathing suit, I like the two piece ones that flare out and hide some of the "mommy rolls" on the front side, with swim shorts that hide some of the back side too. Well, anyone who wears these suits can tell you, that the flare in the front likes to "swim" up in the front when you are in the water and I can just envision it swimming up to my chest as I go down a water slide (not a pretty picture). So, do I forgo this trip because I don't like the way my body looks in a suit, or do I suck it up and try to have fun anyway...Maybe I'll see if I can find a suit that will stay down and hide my rolls...Do they make such a thing???
