Total Truth Tuesday will be a bit delayed...

I have a great Total Truth Tuesday, but I'm going to have to wait and post it Wednesday 'cause, well, just because. Oh, I know why. Because I said so. That's why.

Anyways, in the meantime, I thought I'd share some truth that came straight from the lips of my oldest kiddo. Kai, who cannot tell a lie - at least not when talking about her mother - gave me some brutal honesty the other day. And, it went a little something like this:

Kai: "So, did God give you alot of 'love you's' in your heart for me?"

Me: "Yep. He gave me a big HUGE bucket of 'I Love You's' to keep in my heart just for you."

Kai, thinking: "Soooo, is that why you have such a big belly and big butt?"

Me, trying not to laugh hysterically: "Um, well, that's not a very nice thing to say to Mommy."

Kai: "I'm not saying your fat or anything. I mean, just because you have a big fat belly and a big fat butt doesn't mean I think you're like a big fat giant or something. You know, you are what you are. I mean, your body just looks that way. And, you know, Mom, you get what you get and you don't throw a fit, right?"

Indeed.

well...hard to argue with that I guess. Kai's logic is a gift...

Olivia asked me if my bottom was going to get smaller after the baby comes like my stomach will (cross fingers). She also laments the fact that she is developing moles like me. "Mine won't get big and yucky too, will they?" Thanks, kid.

That's hilarious! The joys of motherhood. They screw up our bodies and then point it out to us :) My son once told me I looked like a zebra, "you know mom, all those stripes on your belly."

Oh, that is great. I love the way children just tell you exactly what is on their mind. We definitely have to have thick skin and a sense of humor to be parents!

LOL! so funny! My kids love my big fat butt too. Oh well, what can you say...I remember when my mom came out to model a pair of jeans and asked "Well, how do I look?" And my brother's friend (whose mom was skinny & played tennis 3 times a week) answered "Pretty fat!" The truth hurts...

Another hilarious post! I just might have to add you to my blogroll! You know it's bad when your very verbal not quite 2 year old says "Suck it in mommy, Suck it in!"
