Cause you're kind of fat.
That's what my 8 yr old dd said to me the other day. :(. I can't tell her she is wrong, I am fat. I've been trying hard to loose weight but it just won't budge. I'm counting my calories, fat, carbs, and I do yoga and Pilates but its just not going anywhere. I asked her what made her think of that and she said her grandparents mentioned that I should " do more than send them ( the kids) outside and take a nap." I do send them out to play when I'm cooking dinner or helping someone with homework. I do NOT just take a nap when they are out! That hurt. I didn't like hearing dd call me fat but I can't fault her observation. I only told her that its not polite to point that out to people. But why would her grandparents bad mouth me in front of her. That's just too far. I can't control what they think but I am angry they said something to my child. What would you do in this situation?
