Truth Hurts

So.....THIS happened.

Sitting on my bed, holding Maggie.  She is asking for something to eat.  Now, keep in mind she is NOT a big eater.  Much of the time she's irritated that I'm even suggesting or offering breakfast or lunch options.  But yesterday she was especially ravenous for some reason.

So, to make this conversation better understood, I shall create a little "key", if you will.  You can thank me later.

A = Me
M = Maggie
I know, my cleverness knows no bounds.

A= You're just really hungry today aren't you?
M= Yeah.  I like to eat a lot because it helps me grow healthy and strong.
A = Well, eating does help you grow healthy and strong, but not if you eat ALL the time.
M= No, that helps you grow fat, like you are.
A = (ouch)  Well, yes.
M = But you're working on it.  You're trying to get skinny like me and Daddy and Max.
A = You don't think Daddy is fat?
M = NO!
And because I'm so totally mature, I said...
A = Well.....he is.

Awesome.  So clearly I'm the only fat, fat fatty residing in this house.  Better keep working harder.  SHEESH!

Did I tell you about the time last month that we had a similar conversation, except in that one I said, "But Maggie, I weigh LESS than Daddy."  She looked me right in the face and very seriously said..."Ummm, NO YOU DON'T!"
My life RULES!

And just for the record little miss double standard....THAT is not skinny. Totally hot, don't get me wrong, but not skinny.
Yeah, that's totes her skinny Dad third in from the left
And she says these things when I'm at the lowest weight I've been since before I had her.  Which is the lowest weight I'd been in......EVER it seems.
Yep, truth hurts.
Guess the workout is never done.
I do think I'll pull out my pre-gastric picture and really rock her world.

Pretty sure life would be sooooo much easier if she'd just spend alot more time like this!  Sweet as pie that girl.
Mmmmmm pie.

Fat moms skinny dads,

And this is why I can never have kids. Haha. If Maggie only knew how far you've come! I think you look fab lady!

I am sorry she is so mean! She will grow out of this, I think. Here is a comment one of my FaceBook friends wrote on her wall this morning, and she has the most beautiful naturally blond hair: "when I asked one of the 5-year-old girls I teach in church to stop playing with my hair and listen to the lesson, she says "But why? Your hair is so ugly and I could make it pretty!"

Kids just have no filter. I probably would have said, "Well, you are." I'm very mature.

You get comments about being fat, I get my kids asking me to put on makeup and why my boobs look like they do. :)

kids can be brutal....i had one ask me how old i was the other day. before i could respond, she said, "what? like 50??". now, i'm at the age where 50 isn't ANCIENT or anything....but i am FAR from 50!! and at 31, i SHO NUFF don't want to be mistaken for 29 years older ;)

Duct tape works wonders....

Just sayin'

Ouch is right! Just keep in mind that size perception is undeveloped in kids this age. Truly! One of these days she'll figure it out! You're looking great my dear! Love you!

Well I remember all too well your post of the pre and post gastric pics, and I think that you have and are taking huge strides towards skinny. Now if only I could get my butt into gear once more. Anywho, ya look great!

oh ouch! I'm so glad you recorded she can read it when she is older and feel really guilty when she is a mom and buy you awesome presents.
