My very-soon-to-be-seven-year-old daughter was running up and down the hallway, into the master bedroom, and then back into the hallway again. On one of the trips into the bedroom, where I have been folding laundry, she offers this little nugget of wisdom. Or maybe I should have said nugget of truth.
CMD:Mommy, I’m running so I can lose weight.
Me: You don’t need to lose weight. You can run so that you can stay fit and trim, but you don’t need to lose weight.
CMD: But you do, right?
Me: Yes, I need to lose weight. Since Daddy will be off tomorrow I’m going to the gym in the morning when I get up.
CMD: Good. You need to because I’m pretty sure there’s not a baby in that tummy.
Thanks, kid. LOL This was after we watched Extreme Weight Loss this morning on the DVR and she told me I needed to go on the show.
