Today, I was naughty and took off work at 10 to catch some sun. I realized that I have become...horror of horrors...my mother. I didn't have any kids with me but I had a huge pool bag full of money, my cell phone, work out clothes, towels and reading material. I had on my bathing suit that tucked me in to make me look skinny and it was an one piece! A one piece! I haven't worn one since I was 15.


I also noticed my first noticeable varicose vein. I am becoming my mother. She has varicose veins, always wears an one piece, rarely gets in the pool and has a giant pool bag that could clothe and feed a small African village.

All you need is a giant hat and prickly yet slippery with sunscreen legs and you could be MY mother too!

Good luck with that, lol.

"Catching sun" is bad for you -- if you go to the pool, then go get in the water and play!

I'm a water rat, though you'd never know it by looking at me. I'm always the one who's first in the water and last out, except for sunscreening breaks.

Hey, this'll make it seem like NOTHING.


My last swimsuit was a black bikini size 10 (the one my DH saw me in in Mexico when we first met

I can relate. I feel like wearing a burlap sack at the pool now after my son said, "Mom, you have very detailed cellulite on the back of your legs."

OMG, my legs are SOOOO pregnant right now! Complete with varicose veins. Dh wants me to get a swimsuit so we can go in the lake with dd....but I just can't do it. I need an old-fashioned swimming costume. Or a wet-suit.

I'm vain, I admit. I haven't even bought maternity shorts. I going with capris. The varicose vein/celluite combo is about as nasty as it gets, imo!

I dated a guy in college whose mother was a "pool mother."
