Oh, I love the honesty of children. O.k., actually, not really. They will just tell you exactly what they are thinking. So, in the past couple of weeks I have had 3 instances with 3 different children involving something to do with the way I look.
You may be thinking these are good things because I have lost 13 pounds. Nope, not so much. These are those truthful statements that you never like to hear. So, here are the 3 scenarios for your reading pleasure.
1) My 3 old son was standing next to me while I was on the computer. My husband was scratching my back which exposed some of the skin on my sides (including the rolls). This is when my little angel walks over, pokes one of those rolls and says "Mommy, you're FAT!" Just that matter of factly. How nice.
2) My 6 year old has these bumps on her that are basically like warts except they are a virus and will spread if she scratches or picks at them. I am constantly telling her to leave them alone. I was doing just that the other day when she asks me for the 100th time, "Why?". I remind her (for the 100th time) that if she messes with them they will spread all over her body. She looks at me with her "I know it all" attitude and says "Well, mom, you have them all over your face!"
Yes, she was talking about acne. Just when you think you are feeling good, you get knocked down a couple noches.
3) A 3 year old friend of the family was looking at my legs and started pointing to the varicose veins by my knee. She looks up at me and says..
"Aunt Cassie, my grandma has those on her, too!"
WHAT?!! O.k., what is the deal. I guess I need to use more neutrogena face wash, continue to lose weight and get a good enough tan to cover up stretch marks and varicose veins.
Oh, those kids just say the darndest things. Haven't I heard that somewhere before?
