Do you remember this picture? It’s from our first CT Working Moms accidentally-viral photo campaign. I’m the mom second in from the right. (hi!) We encouraged moms everywhere to simply embrace their mom bodies, and just love themselves as much as they love everyone else. It caught on fast, and ended up being a pretty big, OMG moment in the right direction for moms everywhere.
Just a few weeks ago we all got together again for our latest photo awareness campaign, and during our photo shoot, I began to reminisce with a few of my mom homegirls about how this, the original photo shoot, actually inspired me to purchase, and actually wear outside of my house, a bikini. And, for the record, I did not have a single ounce of wine when I did so. Yep. It took having two children for this mom to get the confidence to wear a tiny bit of spandex, in my back yard, splashing around in a kiddie pool with my kids. Doesn’t that just blow your mind?
