The other day I asked my fellow mother chicks,
“Gals, where are all y’alls maternity pics?
I never saw any posted, not even one!
Come on, let’s reminisce! Just for fun!”
Then came the stun
To hear they didn’t take any…
Especially to hear the reason
So here’s my question, really:
Why are ladies embarrassed?
Of baby bump pictures?
Yes, your ankles look huge, your eyes puffy
Your waist wide, your behind too
Swollen fingers, sweaty hair
But just let me tell you:
These pictures are the most beautiful out there
Because it’s the remembrance
Of when your child and you were one once
It’s the recollection of two hearts beating in one
A protruding bump that soons shrinks with the birth of your daughter or son
So snap those photos
To show your children tomorrow
The memories of when their life had begun

This one is pretty self-explanatory, I believe.
Snap those pictures, ladies. The memories will be worth it 😉
