It’s officially summer, which means it’s time to shed those winter layers and live in a little less clothing! We know it’s uncomfortable, dropping the towel and stepping out in a bathing suit. You know what would be amazing? A hype man! Someone to get you psyched before you frolic on the beach or at the pool.
A comedian named Kev has just the thing. We dare you to watch this video and not smile.
This beach gone get whatever body I give it. My beach body on back order.

While it’s tempting to make excuses for our lack of ‘summer body’, or wear a t-shirt over our swimsuits, or sit in the shade, Kev has the right idea. The beach is going to get whatever body he gives it. My personal favorite line? “My beach body’s on backorder, it’s on delay 7-10 business YEARS.”
Let’s make summer the season we bite back against body-shaming and unrealistic standards of beauty. We’re parents. We have been through a lot. Let’s tell that ocean (or pool, or lake, or back yard) what kind of body we’re bringing to it!
