We were eating dinner a while ago and discussing everyone’s dinner choices (we were out to eat). I made a comment about something that finished with the statement, “you have a pretty well balanced diet.”
She told me that diet is bad word.
I thought about it for a minute and realized that it’s not a word that I ever use. Really.
She told me that when people diet, it means they aren’t eating enough and they’re usually doing something unhealthy. She continued on to say that people just need to eat regular food and get exercise.
Lesson #2 from my kid:
She loves to watch the show Toddlers and Tiaras. It’s a little worrysome to me, but after the conversation we had the other night, I’m not so worried.
She told me that she feels bad for the kids doing the pageants. Her thought was that the parents are basically telling their kids they’re only pretty with all the makeup, hair, tan, fake teeth. She said that the natural pageants are better because the kids look like they are supposed to and they are very pretty.
Spoken from the kid who loves to wear makeup and then told me the other day that she may not wear much makeup to school this year because she thinks she doesn’t need it.
In other news: I forgot the other day to share a blog post with all of you. I was a guest blogger on Christine’s blog – LoveLifeSurf.com. I had a few words to say about excuses. Go check it out. And while you’re there, check out Christine’s blog for wonderful thoughts on health and fitness and being a busy working mom. And, while you’re at it, I’ve updated my Press Page with links to all the posts I’ve been able to share on other blogs.
And finally, thank you so much for all the support with my announcement yesterday. I love blogging for the support of the community. You are all amazing, thank you.
