Beautiful Butt Cheeks

I can't help it. The cutest part of both of my children's bodies are their perfect little butt cheeks. I saw a lot of them through the potty training period, when it was quicker and easier to have them waist-down naked, so they got the idea of associating what that wetness felt like-and I could just grab them and whisk them onto the potty.

I couldn't help but pat, pinch and swat them when they would waddle past or lean up against me. And I would tell them "You have the most beautiful butt cheeks, I just can't help it." Those naked days are past now, but they still often wander around in their underpants, and their butt cheeks are STILL the cutest things around, just not highlighted as much.

I had gotten out of the shower, and was trying to figure out what I was going to wear when I caught the reflection of my 37yo post-baby (x2) body in the full length mirror. I probably frowned as I focused on different areas, turning this way and that, assessing what I saw. Just as I was thoroughly depressed, I jumped as I heard a little voice behind me.

"You have beautiful butt cheeks, mommy." my two year old daughter said, as she reached up and softly patted my behind.

Thank you, baby girl.
