3-year-old Thinks I'm Fat
Wednesday, February 09, 2011
Let me start this out by saying I am a bit overweight and a size 10-12. BUT . . . I am so happy with where I am. I put on the swimsuit and take my niece & nephew swimming and enjoy it. I am just enjoying life and not focusing on the excess weight outside of the exercise room.
My 3yo niece looked at me the other day and said: Some people are thin. Some people are fat. You drink too much soda and are fat and that's bad.
I was shocked that a 3yo even knew that there was a relationship between what you put in your mouth and your size. They are very religious, so I responded by saying The Lord makes people in all shapes and sizes and colors and we love them all.
The irony was that she was eating a Poptart when she said that. (her mom lets her have that for a dessert)
I'm still going to take her swimming. Regardless if she thinks I'm fat & bad
