We were discussing a character in a movie, it was a catapillar that was very fat and ate all the time with the excuse that it needed all that food for it's transformation into a "beautiful butterfly" most of you with kids will know what movie this is. In the end it hatches into an obese butterfly with inty bity wings.
Emma: " Was the butterfly beautiful Mom?"
Adon: "No it was fat."
Me: "Things can be fat and beautiful."
Adon: "Like you"
Thankfully I'm fully aware of the fact that I'm fat and often discuss it with my children. I don't want it to be taboo and I want them to see my weaknesses and my struggle to master them. So I laughed! Really it was meant to be a compliment. Hopefully he'll marry a good natured woman!
Or a skinny one ;)
