So....as you, gentle readers, can surmise, I am cranky quite a bit. Life just tends to throw big heaping turd-balls at me and i have a difficult time dodging them LOL so i get cranky from being mired in some of the sh1t.
chunkier which is why he's enrolled in soccer and why we will continue to encourage him to participate fully, eat fruits and healthy snacks, provide him a reasonable meal, on and on. The cause of my aggravation is: what is the greater meaning in pointing this out to me, his mother, also an admittedly larger than life woman? Is this a way to point out the obvious weakness in the gene pool that comes from my side of the family? Maybe said loving relative feels I am unable to see/identify that my kid is getting fat since I am also fat (not true, I buy his clothing, I know)? Or is the conversation about withholding .... withholding food/sweets (which this person does not, if the boy asks for more ice cream, another cookie, whatever, he's given it) withholding love because a fat person is less of a person than a thin, fit one and less deserving of my/your/our/his/her love?
It makes me crazed to have this rolling through my mind which is why I share it with you. I want to say something to this person but I won't since I honestly feel it was misguided but well intended.
Please feel free to talk me off of the cranky-ledge...my reaction may be totally out of line;however it was visceral and i am still chewing on it. UGH Have a great day gentle readers LOL (the two of u who are subscribed!!)
