Body by Baby

Because Gisele and all her friends make it seem like stretchmarks don't happen, I started Body by Baby. Stretchmarks do happen. So does saggy skin. And saggy boobs. And that is ok. Because we are real women. Our bodies aren't perfect. But they didn't get this way on their own. They got this way because we are fucking awesome and CREATED A HUMAN IN THEM. What's a stretchmark or a muffin top when we actually made life?

This is what a real woman's belly looks like. This is what having beautiful babies does to a girl. And it is awesome:

The "Road Map"

This is Lindsey from Achievos. She is a mom of three. Her kids are 5, 2 1/2 and 10 months.

Thanks, Lindsey. You are the shit for sharing with us what we all hide from each other.

Feeling frisky? Send me your own Body by Baby portrait and I will share it with all six of my readers the world. Anonymously or not. Your choice. Email them to me at ilikebeerandbabies @ gmail .  com (remove spaces).


  1. For a 6'0" mama who is a little on the Amazonian side, seeing these belly pics of what some of us call "skinny moms" is such an amazing relief. I have wrongly assumed that under your yoga pants you all had flat, toned, stripeless bellies. This is absolutely liberating!! Thanks to all you brave bi-atches!

  2. I am really loving this series so much. Thanks for putting yourself out there and inspiring so many women to do the same. (I'm not quite there yet...but maybe one day I will be.)

  3. I found your blog via Scary Mommy, and I love it. Today, I especially loved your "6 readers" comment. I always tell people that I'd be more than happy to link up with them because I could gain them at least, like, 2 readers: My dad and my sister (the one that knows how to read; the other doesn't follow blogs because she doesn't understand). I am a new follower, and I'm looking forward to reading more! Is it spammy if I leave my blog's address? I'd love you to check me out.

    1. Nope. I will be sure to check it out. Thanks for reading!

  4. I LOVE THIS. I am so tired of seeing these "skinny" moms, and ya know what? I think half of them live in spanx. I have enough restrictions, don't need something tight to boot! Thanks for doing this series, I'm looking at the rest and thinking I'm pretty buff! :)


I love hearing from you. It reinforces that writing this blog is not just a silly waste of my brain matter. If you leave a douche canoe comment, I will delete it. I am powerful like that.
