Did you read my last post...


because you should if you have not...

today my daughter had a friend over. Not one of my favorite friends. In fact one of my least favorite friends. She is indulged and constantly told she is beautiful at her house. She reminds my daughter regularly of her (my daughters) faults and inperfections. Her mom recently was in a pageant of some sort... I really did not pay attention to that part because what sane women over 20 is in a pageant?

Anyhow...out comes the Wii fit. Little Princess says to my daughter -- "why is your Mom fat?" when she saw my little wii avatar (really you should read my previous post and see my wii avatar if you have not).

I swear the truth hurts coming from an 8 year old. First my Nintendo belittles me then her!

UGHHHH!!!! I am working on it OK!

I am a true believer in beauty comes from the inside. I do not believe this is an excuse to let your outer body head to hell--but a shallow inner self creates an ugly exterior. I am genuine and kind unless you are a totally fake pagaent Mom-then I might seem a bit cold and stand-offish. We all have flaws, right?

Once I overheard a conversation between my son and a friend:

Friend: Your mom's fat.
Jaybird: So. Your mom's ugly.

OMWord! I would die if either of my kids said anything like that. Although my 3 year old was asking about boobies the other day and I told her only girls had boobies. Then, she said, "Daddy has boobies." and I said, "No, Daddy is just fat." He has moobs! (man boobs). He can't help it - he quit smoking 4 years ago and gained weight. He's still the hottest thing in my book!

Drown that child. Apparently, her parents never taught her manners and how to be polite and keep your trap shut. Can you say, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all"? Evil little wench.
