Dots and Arm Dangle
Woohoo! We don't care about our arm dangle, 'cause we are lovin' life!
I seriously would like to know how I went from a scrawny-armed, 30-something, to a 40-something with droopy arm dangle. I noticed it the other day. Eeek...
Several weeks ago, my daughter was telling me about a little girl at school who had dots in her cheeks. I told her that those are called dimples and that I had them as well.
"Where?" she said.
"Right here, see?" I smiled.
"Mom," she said, looking genuinely puzzled, "You don't have dots. You have lines."
I rushed to the bathroom, looked in the mirror and flashed myself a smile. Sure enough...no dots. Instead, those cute little dots had been replaced with inch-long LINES.
I have no idea when I went from dots to lines... It seems to have happened overnight. Still...I wouldn't want to go back in time to get those dots and scrawny arms back. I like being in my 40's, even with my lines, arm dangle, and other not-so-lovely body changes! A friend of mine once shared an amusing quote, "I'm still hot. It just comes in flashes now." haha
