I read an article from a child psychologist that said kids prefer a "squishy" mom over a skinny mom, because they're better for hugging. Sarah was the first one up this morning, so I asked her if she would rather have me be squishy or skinny. She said, "I just want you to be healthy." That is by far the nicest thing she has ever said to me!
Later when Noah woke up, I posed the same question to him. He said, "Whatever makes you happy."
My kids are seriously awesome!
