Because I'm not entirely back to my pre-baby weight, and these jeans are magic.
And when magic happens, go with it, or in other words, buy the jeans.
Here's the thing. I had twins. I also had a daughter before that. But the twins changed my body. I mean, I had 2 human lives growing inside my body for 9 months, and they were both born close to 6 and 7 pounds respectively. That does a doozy to your body. A frickin' doozy. And I'm ok with it, most days. But when I slip into something that makes me feel like I didn't give birth to twins and I look a little like my old self, I get all happy inside and my visa does the happy swipe.
