also the reason my underarms stay dry.


Having my own pointy chinned-strawberry blond, I wonder about how to combat all of this. I love her little body. Her wee, round belly. Her dimply hands. I want her to know that she is enough. I'm so glad that there are years and years before I have to have answers for her. I am so glad that for now, she struts around in her diaper and dances like a wild woman. I am thankful that junior high dances are a long way off.

This video exploits the facts! I'm glad you shared this video. Where'd you find it? Did it air on t.v? I haven't seen it. I really like the dove commercials. I'm actually going to use up the rest of my pantene and try dove shampoo big change for me. I have used pantene for years. But if my moneys going to have to go into someones pocket its going into the pockets of those who are having a campaign for self-esteem and real beauty.

Yikes. Tobin is on my lap right now. I clicked on the cute red-headed girl and warped my childs brain with flashes of breasts and butts. As I was scrabbling to click it off his eyes wonder from my screen to Cyber Chase on TV. I breath knowing at this age cartoons win over naked women. How much longer do I have before that flips?
