The Amazing / Ridiculous Wonder Woman Bathing suit

Without further ado, pictorial proof that the Wonder Woman bathing suit was worn in public:

Not pictured: the large group of people laughing and humming the theme tune while the pictures were being taken.  Their spokesperson did have the grace to say they weren't laughing at me. Not as such anyway.  I was okay with it, though, as I couldn't stop laughing either.

Here I am looking for trouble.  And dying.

Springing into action.  And dying.

Flouting the rules.  And blinking.

I'm glad I did the ridiculous photoshot and got all of my nerves and embarrassment out of the way as I was able to wear the suit on later days and gave very few sh*ts about being judged.  That can't be said about wearing it for the first time, however!

When I put my suit on at the house in front of Jamie before the beach, he said , 'Mum! What happened to your stomach?!'  Assuming he was concerned by the really stupid sunburn underbust, I said 'Don't worry, buddy, it's just sunburn.'  To which he said, 'No, I mean- how did you get so fat?'. Which was a great line with perfect delivery, but personally devastating for at least five hours.

  7. Amazing!!! You look awesome and the suit is beyond cool. I hope you blamed Jamie for the perceived (but totally nonexistent) fatness. It's his fault, after all! Well, and Maia's too. :)

    1. It was actually kind of funny, as Jamie was getting a lecture from my Mom about why saying things like that could hurt my feelings Maia waded in and asked, 'But why can't we say things when they're true?' I can laugh now :)

  8. Love it!

    Re: Jamie -- My oldest was about 4 when she wanted to know why my belly was "so wrinkly." I told her that she had been in there and stretched it out as a baby. Her follow up question (also with perfect delivery)? "Was I in your booty too?"

    There is no dignity in motherhood and certainly no glamour.

  11. ha ha ha @ Jamie! Asking Nate if he liked my shorts the other day "yeah they're nice" do they suit me? "yeah you look like a fat version of Molly{his sister/my daughter}" ah right thanks Nate! It was meant a compliment - he likes fat ladies!

  17. You are so not fat, geesh the things kids say! And really not everyone can pull that look off with such style and grace. I say make it your profile pic wherever you have a profile just to prove that you are wonderful (as far as I can tell from reading your posts).
