Loving this post of @allisonkimmey: 'I was standing in the kitchen and she said "What's that on your legs mama?"
"What are you talking about babe?"
"These little bumps"
"What do you think they are?"
"It looks like cute little lumpies"
"Haha, yes my little lumpies! It's actually called cellulite and it's just the way that some of my fat likes to get together in little groups under my skin"
"Oh! Like they're having a party?"
"A little lumpies party"
"Yah! It's cellu- LIT"
It matters how we talk about our bodies around our children. We are constantly shaping their beliefs.
I have had cellulite present on my thighs since I was about 8 years old. And it plagued me because everything I believed about it was that it was a terrible thing to have. I did not wear shorts or go without a cover up for 15 years. And as my body love journey took shape a few years ago, my cellulite was still one of the hardest things for me to embrace.
I don't know if she'll have the same amount of cellulite as I do, odds are she will have some since more than 90% of women have it! I do know, however, that no matter how much or little she has, she can see that it is not bad, that it will never define her or determine what she can wear.
Shout out to all my girls with cellu- LIT lumpie parties going on...give me a 💃🏼if you're rocking yours!
Just do you babes!
