Living large

I am a small person. That's really more genetics than a lot of effort on my part, which I am very thankful for.

My girls are also slender and they haven't spent much time around women that aren't fully clothed (which is a good thing), so they haven't really made a connection to how people look with and without clothes on based on their size.

However, it doesn't do much for the mama self-esteem when we all go to the bathroom and I hear...

"Mama, you have a big bottom!"

Of course, she sort of makes up for it with the next comment out of her mouth:

"When I get bigger, I'm going to have a big bottom just like Mama."

Oh, my. That is the greatest post ever. I can hear Danielle saying that!

For what it's worth, I think you have a nice bottom. :) And for most of my life, I've wanted a bigger bottom so I can actually fill my pants. So if you ever want to let me borrow some of yours, no problem! :)

LOL Don't the greatest comments from our children come out in the public bathroom stalls! ;)

Wishing you well as you prepare to travel on your new adoption trip!

I get that all the time, along with comments about my grey hair. Ben keeps me appraised of when it's time to get the Clairol out!!!!

Better than what I usually hear: "Mommy went poop! Bye-buy, poop!" That's especially fun when we're in a public restroom!

LOL! I just about spewed my coffee on that one!
