OMG! My kids said something that shocked me today! We have some morning work and then for a few minutes they have "choices." Some my girls were sitting around a table and drawing. I heard one say to another, "If Miss Froggy lost weight I think she would be able to get married." And another said, "She should get as thin as your mom So and So, because she just go married." I just about died!!!!! Where do 6 year olds hear this and are children already engrained at 6 to have these kinds of stereotypes and conceptions about marriage, dating, etc? The irony is I have just lost 40 lbs since last spring! I have some more to go, but more or less am looking and feeling A TON better! I haven't weighed this amount since grad school! I sort of felt like I should have a "people come in all shapes, sizes and colors" discussion but did not... now I need to think about when and how to have that conversation.
