Kids saying the darnedest things gets old... fast.
Me: Man, my stomach looks fat
(Since having 3 kids I've lost 40 pounds and 2 cup sizes. I'm almost near my athletic competing weight)
Oldest: You don't look fat mommy. (Endearingly and in an almost unbelievable tone)
Middle: I like how you look like that mommy.
Me: Aww... (Believing that I could feel the love in her words)
Middle: Yeh, b/c it means you won't have another baby b/c you're fat. I don't want you to have more kids.
Hmmm... Does this mean she knows that no one will want me or what???
