Fat pants
November 23rd, 2012

I put on a pair of pants one morning and the button was a little tight. "Do I look fat in this?" I asked Olivia. My husband would actually give me an honest answer, which I really do appreciate, but he wasn't home.

"Yes," she said without hesitation.

Frustrated because it validates that I just don't get out to exercise the way I could before, I turned around. "From the back, too?" I asked.

"No," said Olivia. "Just the front. It's puffy right here." She pointed to where the button was making the fabric feather.

"Oh. I thought so," I responded.

Kids. She's so good for my self esteem.
