You get to wear a maternity swimsuit all summer. Everyone raves about your cute belly, and no one mentions or notices that extra 30 pounds you’re carrying elsewhere.
(Also, no one hints that maybe you should put down the popsicle and cool down with some crunchy celery sticks instead.)
In the fall, temperatures have dropped slightly so that you can carry your newborn around in your Moby wrap without one or both of you having a heat stroke.
Fall fashions such as scarves, jackets, sweaters, andlong pants are perfect for disguising the extra squishiness around your thighs and middle.
You can save postage by sending out baby announcements with your Christmas card. You can even be extra thrifty and make ONE card for both purposes.
You can eat everything you want at the family feasts and still end Thanksgiving week one pound lighter than you started. (Oh, yes, I did!)
You look like Dolly Parton in your family’s Christmas card photo.
