so we were out and about this morning and Piper saw a rather overweight woman and she said to me in her somewhat shout/really loud voice:
"Mom, that woman has a really big tummy. Really really big tummy. Mom, do you see her? She has the really biggest tummy in the world. Mom! MOM! MOM! DO YOU SEE HER WITH THE REALLY BIG TUMMY?"
I'm sure the woman had to have heard her big 3 year old voice and I just kind of sunk inside mysef not knowing what to say or how to react or for the love of God just leave and flee...you know, fight or flight? fly fly fly!
Have you ever had to address something like this and if so, how did you go about the explanation to your child?
usually she just asks me if the lady has a baby in her tummy as a lot of our friends are pregnant at the moment and Piper has taken to walking around the house with a stuffed animal up her shirt calling it "the baby in my tummy."
and just because...here is one of my favorite pictures of my favorite bug:
