Kids... Mine and His!
Monday, November 26, 2012
This weekend was interesting. James and I got out kids together to see how the day will go. I think it went well. Sorta. I am planner. I have always been and always will be. He has no structure at all. It is a little frustrating. Then we went out to eat. It bothered me so much to watch his kids order soda for breakfast
. They didn't eat one vegetable all day.
I wanted to cry because all of his kids are a overweight. Not extremely overweight but overweight none the less. The first things the oldest boy who is 13 says to me is I am not fat I have a chubby face
. I didn't even say a word. I am thinking to myself, he must get picked on at school because why would anyone say that without a prior conversation?
James made a plate for the youngest boy and he didn't want to eat it all. He said he should eat it all. I actually spoke my mind on this one and said we shouldn't be in the clean the plate club
. It is totally not healthy. He didn't say anything after that.
This is going to be a lot of work. This is just something I won't compromise on. It made me so sad this weekend remember what it was like to be at school
and overweight. I just don't want everyone to have to go through that!
