Me at 40 - Through Sidney's Eyes

Like many women I dislike pictures of myself and generally avoid the camera.

My 40 year old shape is not my friend.

However I have 3 daughters and I believe it's important for me to love myself so that they learn to love themselves.

So here I am through Sidney's eyes at 40.

I am a wife and a mommy to 4.

Time has changed my shape and had added some winkles and sags.

But I'm still me and I'm still beautiful.  I try to tell myself this but I don't usually believe it.

My kids don't care if I have a bit of weight around the middle and wrinkles around my eyes.  And they couldn't care less if I sag a little.

They make me so proud and I want to do the same.  I want them to see me as a Mom to be proud of.  I hope they will read this one day and know that posting pictures of myself is hard but that I am doing it so that when they are 40 they will still love themselves.
