The best tummy camouflage ever!

You know how it is. Baby weight melts off when you have your first. The second time is not so easy, apparently. We have a wedding next month. I have to go buy a dress that fits since all my dresses are still too small. I cannot express how much I am dreading this. I don't feel comfortable in my skin these days, and there is nothing like dress shopping to make you feel even more... icky.

But I have a secret weapon. What Not to Wear has nothing on me. It won't matter what I am wearing since the only part of my outfit anyone will notice will be the cutest baby in the world in a sling (strategically placed to cover my "problem area." For the first time I am grateful I carry my weight in my stomach, since I can't imagine who would lend me their baby for the weekend so I could strap it to my other thigh.) All she has to do is smile and flirt, something she just can't help doing, and no one will notice me at all. I am all set. I could probably get away with wearing jeans. If I had any that fit....
