A "Cheeky" Little Poem

A little poetry, because pregnancy makes my face round.

.... Okay, fat.

Ode to My Missing Cheekbones

Cheekbones, cheekbones, where'd you go?
You used to be right there below
My eyes, all sculpted and defined -
But now you're very hard to find.

You've been obscured by rounded cheeks:
Objects of my worst critiques.
You've gone from "Angelina Jolie"
To "Campbell's Soup Kid," it seems to me.

I never thought you'd let me down,
But a little weight gain and you skip town.
Now I look like a gumball with hair
My face is as round as my belly down there!

But I don't hate you, little traitors;
In fact, I hope to see you later.
Once I've lost these extra pounds
Perhaps you'll want to stick around.

As soon as baby comes, it's on -
Less fat, fewer carbs, and the sugar's gone.
So you'll reclaim your rightful place
Right here on my waiting face!





  1. You are so funny. I love your blog. I just spent a good hour going backwards through your blog and reading. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks so much. Your kids sound hilarious. I am so happy I have a girl. And just one. I am going to add you to my bloggy friends.

    Have a great day.

    PS - I loooove your poem.

  2. Aww, thanks so much Charisse! You're very lucky ... I love my boys, but a girl would be nice! :)

  3. Hilarious. Great post. I can totally relate. I feel the same way about my 6 pack. (oh , who am i kidding, I never really had a six pack. not even close. but it's fun to pretend or dream about having anyway!)

  4. Only you!! LOL Girl you know you'll be smokin' thin in no time!

  5. I feel the same way about my hip bones. And I can't even blame it on pregnancy! LOL
