Sometimes Revenge Looks Like Flats

There are many things that one learns about pregnancy after the fact. I am sure I am not the only one who swore up and down during my last trimester  that if “I knew what I know now back then, things would be VERY VERY DIFFERENT AT THIS MOMENT.” As loyal readers know, the single best thing about pregnancy (other than the baby, duh) is that it is the greatest equalizer ever. Even Kim Kardashian gets the puffy ankles

I knew about swollen ankles. At least, I thought I did. I remember watching my ankles swell after finishing a (super grab) bag of Rold Gold pretzels. If I didn’t know better, I would have sworn I was watching something over time lapse photography. The swelling was quick, and it was epic. It was also extremely sad as I could eat three meals a day consisting solely of  pretzels. (Salt is totally a food group.)

Thankfully, I got the memo…  She didn’t.

She claimed flats were uncomfortable. She tried to beat the system.

She lost. In related news, the gossip rags keep pitting Kim against Princess Kate, which makes me so sad because as much I love all things K, Kim doesn’t stand a chance…




  1. Amen, girlfriend. AMEN.

    I think it was another Kardashian who said she would never wear ugly underwear when she was pregnant…HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. SURE.

    • I can’t wait to see how NOT quickly she loses her baby weight and does NOT start wearing cute clothes again. And has entire conversations about poop consistency.

  2. Agreed! By the end of my pregnancy with my son all I could wear were Crocs. And not the cute flip flops or Mary Jane styles either. The big, clomper kind that should only be worn for gardening.

    • All I cold wear were Jesus style Birkenstocks. I felt like I should be selling bibles at the airport

  3. Why would anyone do that to themselves?? Her feet look like sausage links. And those shoes are ugly no matter what. Viva la flats!
