Hot Chocolate with a Side of Brownies

“I take pleasure in my transformations. I look quiet and consistent, but few know how many women there are in me.”
― Anaïs Nin

I took my 9 year old daughter out yesterday for a bottle of water and an apple, but somehow, we ended up with a cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream and a brownie. As she nibbled on the brownie, she said, “Mommy, go ahead and tell me your most intimate secrets!”
I do believe my mouth dropped.
I replied, “Drink your hot chocolate, my love”.

How did she even know the word “intimate?”

The next day was her tenth birthday and she asked me if I had made her a card.
I said, “No”.
And felt like the worst Mama in the world.


So, after I dropped her off at school, I went to the mall and bought her a book she had been wanting. On the inside flap I wrote her a long letter.

And I shared my first intimate secret with my newly 10 year old daughter.
I told her about the time I had gotten into trouble for kissing a boy on the cheek during a game of “Truth or Dare” at school, when I was 10 years old. The lunch lady had caught us and had sent both of us to eat the rest of our lunch at the “punishment table”.

When I came home, I hid the book under her pillow, so before she went to bed she would find her last birthday surprise.

As I sat down with a cup of coffee, a flood of intimate secrets hit me and I smiled. Once upon a time, I went to the gym, had breasts that stood up and said hiya, and could run a 5k with the best of them. I did 24 hour spring break road trips to Key West, hit D.C. for the Cherry Blossom Festival, and bar hopped like a champ to earn a cool t-shirt. I dipped my extra-hot wings in ranch dressing, put vinegar on my fries, and barely needed lipgloss and mascara.

Let’s talk now. Big mommy now.

I live in leggings, and anything black. Meditation sparks my smile, creativity, and loving glow, until the bags under my eyes swing me to my pillow. Happy hour is bedtime, and my Sunday matinee with popcorn and extra butter, has become Netflix binge watching while carrot crunching. Instead of getting my groove thing on, I chauffer my girl to lacrosse practice and occasionally blast the Beastie Boys. I obsessively eat everything organic and aside from an occasional hot chocolate and brownie, choose fruit with a side of extra nothing. I am so diehard Organyc 100% pure, cotton tampons that I have started to bleed green.

My happy has evolved.

Once upon a time, I had intimate secrets. Now, I have intimate wipes.
