MY MOUTHY FIVE YEAR OLD...


Today at the pool...

My mouthy five year old daughter and I were in the "big pool" together...she was so excited that I finally wore my bathing suit to the pool and got to have some one on one time with just her. As we were playing in the pool she commented that she knew I was fat because I am pregnant, but why was I fat when I am not pregnant?

Then to add insult to injury...she added, when are you going to look like the other ladies? (let me add that about an hour earlier I reprimanded a mom in the baby pool for looking so amazing and skinny in her bikini...doesn't she know that hot mom's in bikini's are unwanted in the baby pool???)

I quickly mentioned that I would "hopefully" look like other ladies when I was done having babies. She looked sad and said, "that makes me sad,... I wanted you to have a hundred babies!!!"

So I guess she redeemed herself for being so cute and sincere.

THY WILL BE DONE!!! +JMJ+

Are all 5 year olds obsessed with fat? My 5 year old has mentioned a few times that I am "fat". The last time I almost took him out. :-) At least yours redeemed herself! :-)

After we had our 4th, my dear son told me that he had changed my name to "Chubby" and that he would not call me "Mama" until I was no longer chubby. He was 4. Needless to say, I will never be the bikini clad mom in the baby pool!

Heavy sigh! yeah. This is the part about following Christ in this manner that causes me the most grief- not the kids commenting on it, but the reality. I personally can't seem to be fit and pregnant or lose weight while I am nursing. I am about fifty pounds overweight and I can't seem to find anything hopeful or humorous to say about it, or the self control to fix it- at least not here in hormone hell, ok, purgatory. to Do you think they paid cosmetic surgeons for Kate Goselin to get that bikini bod after sextuplets?
