If you’re worried that your partner won’t appreciate your post-baby body, you’ve got to read this piece from mommy blogger Laura Mazza, a mother of two who recently wrote this Facebook post apologizing to her husband for her forever-changed form.

It starts like this:

“This isn’t the body you fell in love with.”I said to him. “The body he fell in love with was toned, it had muscles, there were no stretch marks on my belly, none on my boobs, no gut from muscle separation. The body he fell in love with fit into tight jeans, could walk into a shop and grab any size and walk out, knowing it fit. This body now couldn’t shop at those stores, and mostly wears leggings. His body stayed the same, but mine changed in every way. It isn’t fair… “

Then, her apparently amazing baby daddy said this:

“You’re right. It isn’t the body I fell in love with.”

Wait for it…

“Instead it’s a body that grew our children, it fed our children, it comforted our children, it made life. Your body is the one I fall in love with every day. I didn’t know what love was until I saw this body and found out all it could do, so thank you.”
