Words of Wisdom

**Contains womanly content male readers, may want to not read**
My husband is going to think this post is inappropriate but it's just a fact of life, sorry honey.


I have heard from many of you and have had a few experiences of my out of nowhere suddenly have to "go," or where a laugh, or a sneeze, or perhaps I just drinking too much water prior to a run which makes you nearly pee your pants. Leaving you thinking, "where did that come from" and "what happened to me, can I not control myself?" This phenomenon is normal after childbirth and is also part of aging--another great thing to look forward to :)

A couple Sundays ago we were at Andrew's parents house and after dinner I was looking through the Sac Bee, pulling out advertisements, the comics, the section with the recipes, and the parade. So Andrew's amazing Grandma Lois joins Robin and I at the table and she opens the Parade and is looking through it and there is an add for Depends, for those who don't know Depends are adult diapers. Now one thing I especially love about Lois is that she will tell you what she is thinking and she is super sharp so I always listen to what she has to say.

She leans in and says to Robin and I and asked us "Do you two know what Kegels are... we're nodding as she continues "they strengthen your pelvic floor muscles." She continues on saying, "You can do them (kegel's) anywhere; the car, while grocery shopping, at church, watching t.v. and let me tell you, they work!" We are laughing and at this point maybe a little embarrased to be having this conversation with Lois but she was a nurse so she has credibility besides being a woman and a grandma.

It gets better, "Girls, you need to do them, your future DEPENDS on it."
Get it?
She is hilarious to boot.

Now literally everytime I have to us the restroom (I am tying to be politically correct, I have almost written pee so many times) which happens to be a lot because I am pregnant I think of her words of wisdom "your future DEPENDS on it!"

So remember,
