I felt sexy today
Even though I probably wasn’t
Hair, sleep wild
A baggy T-shirt dress
And freshly brushed teeth.

Somehow, my feet seemed
A little farther from my face.
Dare I hope that I grew a little?
Who am I kidding.
I’m just standing straight.

He watched me do yoga
Eyes wide at the sight of my contortions
I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun
Working out.

I felt sexy today
I have a question:
Do these jeans make my butt look big?

On my hands and knees
Chasing infants across the floor
Giggles and screams
Mock roars and pouncing
Kisses and nibbles on ticklish ribs,
Baby back, the best kind

They were happy
And I was happy
It’s crazy how infectious joy can be.
