Snow Bear

Why aren’t I in this picture?

Oh, yeah, because I’m shredding the powder.

Or I’m taking a few conservative runs in some spring-like slush.

Either way…

Last time I was skiing, I was four months pregnant, and possibly not having the most fun.  I was terrified of skiing again – I feel like it’s been so long since my body was my own.  And between the two pregnancies and becoming a mommy, I thought maybe I had lost that part of myself that could execute a turn without eating sh*t, but I even made it off the lift with some sort of grace (in my mind, I am very graceful getting off the lift, but if you read my past posts, you will know that I have a very active but not very accurate imagination).

Three or four years from now, my kid will probably be skiing circles around me.

That’s less of a brag about her motor skills, and more of an indication of my own proficiency.

I. love. this. picture.

Oh yeah, and great job shredding it up, or whatever. I’m not a skier, but I’m pretty sure that gives you about 10,000 Super Cool Mom Points.
