This is just something that I thought was pretty funny and worth posting. Now when I look at my post baby body I don't have anything bad to say, just that I wish I had appreciated my body before I had Eli. Then I think that I didn't appreciate my body in high school then it has gotten progressively worse, well not worse just different, this leaves me thinking that I shouldn't think badly about my body anymore, I should just appreciate it now because its just down hill from here. Now I realize that, that is pretty pessimistic. I think my pessimism is pretty funny. I blogged before about my expectations around having a new baby in the house. Of course I thought it would be so bad that I was pleasantly surprised and now I wonder if I'm not an optimistic pessimist.
My best friend is a CRAZY optimist, she thinks the best of everything and usually she's disappointed. I think that we make a hilarious pair. We went to New York City together and we stayed in hostil. When we got to our room I was so happy I thought wow we did really well, we have our own room, the door locks, there is even a tv in the room, its not nearly as dumpy as I anticipated. You couldn't ask much more for 25$ a night. On the other hand she was super disappointed saying that it was dumpy and she expected there to be a kitchen in our room, she thought the room would be bigger and there would be a view of the city. (Our room looked out on a brick wall, but hey that's better than looking out on some adult book store or something. lol) All this to say that some days I think my pessimism turns out to be an asset.
