Squeeze and...

Sneeze. Yup, you heard me right. I'm not sure why I want to talk about this, but it is one of those things that you think only mature (read: old) women have to worry about. Until you have children. Then you suddenly understand ALL TOO WELL!

My great aunt Mary was telling my sister and I about a time when she heard a story and laughed so hard she wet her pants. Then she was re-telling the story, and did it all over again.

I always assumed that this was due to her advanced years, until I had Emma. You see, Aunt Mary had six kids. I know you all said, "Ahhhhh!" just now. Yeah, didn't realize what joyful gift those little dearies leave behind. It's not enough that you have to change their pants, but now you have to make sure you get that squeeze in there before you sneeze, or you're changing yours too.

Just a little happiness for your day.

I'll go now.

I remember when I learned of that lovely after effect of childbirth. It was when I tried to jump on a trampoline after my first son was about 10 months old. That was fun. Not.

Pilates has helped a ton. I almost hardly ever mostly usually don't have to squeeze anymore :)
