Kids... Mine and His!

Good Morning...

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 emoticon . They didn't eat one vegetable all day. emoticon

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 emoticon . 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 emoticon. 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 emoticon and overweight. I just don't want everyone to have to go through that!
