Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

So embarrassed.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

My DS is 4yo. I just started to teach him what is healthy(to eat), and what is not. He never been in a fast food restaurants before, but saw his cousins eating it a lot. I explained to him that's this is unhealthy food, and we don't eat it. He was fine with it. 

Today I didn't have time to cook anything at home, we were outside the whole day, so I decided to buy him Burger King that once. We went to BK and there was this really fat cashier, she asked what we wanted to eat. My DS looked at her and said:"Mommy that lady is really fat, is it because she eat a lot burgers?".I didn't know what to do or say. I was so Embarrassed. I run out of BK and started to explain to him that its not nice to call people fat. He replied:"But Mommy she WAS fat.What do we call fat people? I didn't really knew what to say.

What should we call fat people?

I know that the size is irrelevant, but kids say it like they see it. 

Quoting ebbierowe:

By their name. If we don't know their name sir or ma'am. Their size is irrelevant in most situations

Then I would tell him that it is rude to call people fat. It has a negative connotation. But since he is young I am sure the lady understood.

Maybe just overweight or plump. Honestly no matter what you use someone will be offended

He can say that lady or something. I wouldn't be mad at him, they don't know any better. Kids always say the hard truth.
