The wisdom of kids sometimes take your breath away. The happens to me a lot, especially with my little old soul: Mouse. If you think you know everything about being a Tiger Mom, I think Little Mouse have a much better definition.
We were lying in bed on a Sunday morning and my pj top has lifted a little bit showing the stretch marks of my pregnancies. Every woman that has ever picked up any weight for whatever reason knows that stretch marks are the bane of our existence. You can try every miracle cream on the market but in the end the only solution is just making peace with them.
The Littlest Mouse looked at my stretch marks and exclaimed excitedly:
“Mom, look! Are you turning into a tiger?”
What could I say? I said: “Yes, little Mouse, your mom has a superpower, she has tiger stripes because she can turn into a tiger.”
And that ladies and gentleman is the story about how I learned to make peace with my stretch marks and are even a little proud of them.
Not only do I have proof that my body has grown another human being but my secret super power is that I can turn into a tiger.
