Our community pool opened this weekend, so we went to the pool last night and again this afternoon. When we got there, I saw a couple moms I know plus one I've never met before. I went and joined them to chit chat for a little while. They were all sitting on the ledge of the big pool and my DD wanted to swim there.
So, after talking small talk for a little while, my friend (more of an acquantaince) tells me that I'm famous at the pool. I was just like... huh?? (We just joined the pool last summer and are still getting to know everyone.) She told me that last night, she was having dinner in the pavilion area of the pool and that several women with her were all talking about "the mom with the abs". She looked at me and agreed with them about the abs and then realized that she knows me! Then the other mom (the one I didn't know) asked my kids' names. When I told her, she said, "Oh, I know about you! I was talking to Becky yesterday and telling her how I was not excited to be brining this body [hers] to the pool and she was telling me that I had to see this Michelle's body -- that she is ripped and has three kids!"
Yikes!!!! I mean, I am totally flattered!!! This is a HUGE NSV for me!!! I have not worn a two-piece suit in like 6 years... and I was nervous about even doing it this year! So... to hear these compliments from these other women, most of whom don't even know me, was a HUGE moment for me! I was speechless!!
Here is a pic of me and my DD at the pool today in our blue bikinis... or "pahkinis" as DD calls them! LOL!
