Then there is my daughter (4). She is a tiny little thing with awful eating habits. I don't give her whatever she wants but if I did she would literally eat candy all day every day. She refuses to drink anything besides apple juice (which I water wayyyyy down) and milk. Her eating habits are partially my fault....she dropped off the charts for weight and my dr told me to basically feed her whatever she wants (she would barely eat anything at 2) in order to get some meat on her bones. She is also incredibly picky. Now she is in the 6th percentile and we are working hard at getting her eating habits more healthy.
Anyways everybody always comments on how tiny DD is and how she skinny she is while my son has gotten made fun of at school, called names and has terrible self esteem. He told me last week that he really hopes he isn't chubby in high school :-( I feel like its so unfair to him. He has been checked by the dr who isn't concerned seeing as he has always been big but I'm very worried about his self esteem getting worse.......plus I think all the comments about his stick thin sister doesn't help!!
