A Little Humility…

OK, confession time.  Here is the story.  A friend from high school is getting married on Nov. 9. I can’t go.  But, since I have lost 25 pounds since August I was feeling rather trim. I was looking in my dresser mirror, sucking my stomach in and in my head imagining going to this wedding where everyone is commenting on how I am the best looking 35 year old there. LOL!! The next thing I know, my 10 year old son is standing there looking at me with a pretty strange expression. Then he says, (not rude or even joking, but serious with a little grin) “Are you looking at your fat, Mom?” OK, how is that for humility and being knocked down a peg? But, it gets better… I just smiled at him and went to the kitchen to attend to dishes. He walks in and very seriously says, “Mom. Really, why are you so fat anyway?”

+++++++++++++++++

On that note, I would just like to say that I have a bunch of pictures to post, but once again, I am having trouble.  It worked fine for a few days and now I can’t seem to shrink them and my very busy husband’s assistance is needed.  When we find the time for that, the pictures will be posted.  So stay tuned….

    Hilarious Kristen! Right there with you! Ugh…there’s just nothing glam about us anymore, huh? So without glamour, what is there left for us but a heaping helping of humility.

    Don’t you love the brutal honesty of our sons?

    If it makes you feel any better, or makes you laugh….

    Carly told me a couple of years ago that it was too bad that I was too old and fat to be a ballerina.

    Shattered my dreams, I didn’t realize……….

    Good thing they’re so cute and innocent 🙂
