I realized how good I looked 40 pounds ago.
I had a bathtub as big relative to my body as our tub is to Sophie.
Sophie's sleep schedule would be predictable enough that I could make plans and know I'd be able to keep them.
I wasn't always dog tired at 7pm and wide awake at 10pm.
Everything was in HD.
I could find a haircut that I was happy with for more than a week.
My hands weren't always cold.
I could bring myself to wean my daughter.
Exercise was as much fun as laying around.
I could eat dessert every night.
I could pause, rewind and replay life.
My child listened when I said NO.
I could bottle the way Sophie's laughter makes me feel.
Lizzy a very Happy Birthday full of joy and $25 Hondas!!
