This word is resonating with me lately. There are two meanings for me, and they are intricately woven together. The first meaning: It depends on what I am doing. Yesterday I sneezed. Today I ran. It doesn't depend on the number of kegels I do. The second mening: If it keeps up, I may have to wear Depends.

I am a mother to two wonderful children that apparently reeked havoc on my body while in utero. I am occasionally incontinent. Today, I ran on the treadmill at the gym. No problem. I only ran for 25 minutes, but it felt good. I used a few weight machines for my legs. When I stood up to leave, I noticed my shorts felt wet. I mean REAL WET! I wondered what water I had encountered. Could my rear have sweat that much?? Nope, I had wet myself! The horror! To top it off, I didn't even know. Yesterday I sneezed and had to change shorts. I am my MOTHER!!

So, tonight and from this point forward, I will exercise my nether girlie bits while laying down with children. Up the elevator 1-2-3-4-5 down the elevator 5-4-3-2-1. The irony is that lately I have been kegeling. The injustice of it all...
