DS1 (4.3) was there whilst I was changing this evening.
'mummy what's that tummy on your back'
'mummy I can see your tuppy... Big hairy tuppy ugh'
'mummy you really are a bit fat like a great big panda'.
Admit I am at the upper end of my weight range but talk about brutally honest....

Time for taking the clothes into the bathroom and locking the door!

musttidyupmusttidyup Sun 07-Aug-11 20:37:13

In the bathroom??? Alone???? That hasn't happened for years!grin

I get this. "Mummy, your tummy is VERY blobby. Blob blob blob" [poking and giggling]

I tell him it's blobby because he and his sister used to live in there.

musttidyupmusttidyup Sun 07-Aug-11 21:03:01

Me too... I tell him its because Mummy had lots of babies quickly but it's a bit of a lie...always was quite blobby blush

I had "Mummy, why do you have a hairy bottom?" whilst in the public changing rooms at the swimming pool.

I've had worse I've had "mummy why do you have a beard on your bottom?"

DS (2.9) rushes into bathroom this morning, just as I'm about to sit down on the loo.

"Mummy, I came in to look at your willy. Where's it gone?"

No son, that'll be your father you're thinking of. But thanks. A heap.

DS isn't even 1 yet and he likes to slap and blow raspberries on my blobby tummy.

A friend of mine was having tea and biscuits in bed. Her wee DD tried to feed her fanjo a biscuit...

So glad my glass was empy, else I'd have sprayed my keyboard with G&T! grin

Never too early to tell kids that calling people blobby/fat/saying "ugh" when looking at them is really unkind....even if it is your six year old has been told and now thinks before he comments!!

bonkers20 Sun 07-Aug-11 21:40:53

I am not sure if you are being light hearted or not, but I think I'd rather teach the 4 year old that commenting on people in a negative way is not polite and can hurt their feelings. Fine to ask questions or if he's saying "you look like a panda" in a totally innocent way, but if he's poking fun at you, then it's not OK.

It's a perfect time to teach him the difference between men and woman or girls and boys and also about bodily hair.

If you really are out of shape then you could acknowledge that to him and admit that you need to exercise.

MadameLupino Sun 07-Aug-11 21:43:59

I do agree with the thing about teaching him how personal comments can make people feel. He's old enough to understand.

Actually snorting at feeding the hairy fanjo a biscuit grin

Why, I would 1) Book an appointment for a wax and 2) start a diet.

Out of the mouths of babes...

You should thank him! smile

musttidyupmusttidyup Sun 07-Aug-11 21:46:32

Fair point re pointing out feelings could be hurt but he was not saying it to be mean, just stating the facts as he sees them!
Was supposed to be lighthearted bonkers. Why so serious?

honeyandsalt Sun 07-Aug-11 21:46:46

Ach bonker you spoilsport wink

DS likes to wobble my jelly belly blush

musttidyupmusttidyup Sun 07-Aug-11 21:48:04

There's nothing like the cold hard truth eh? Monday tomo must start diet....have been using BF as excuse but am weaning DD.....

Sleepyspaniel Sun 07-Aug-11 21:52:22

Yah. Stop the scuses, BF is O-V-E-R now girlfriend, get yourself signed up at a daytime WW meet, take your DD with you. By Xmas you could see a fantastic difference.

Take those lemons your DS socked at you and turn them into lemonade! <yada yada yada>...

musttidyupmusttidyup Sun 07-Aug-11 21:58:51

Yes sleepy I'm gonna do it! (Not WW though never get there) maybe their online thingy? Have got a gorgeous top in wardrobe I bought last xmas when pg with DD which I swore I'd get in my following xmas.
Have also got a copy of shred still in wrapper.......

bonkers20 Sun 07-Aug-11 23:06:46

OP I did say that I wasn't sure whether you were being light hearted or not. It's not clear from your post ie no smileys or hint of sarcasm.

He might not have been saying those things to be mean, but he does need to know that they can be mean. That's all.

My 2YO saw me naked and said "oooo spider" at my public hair. I hope it's not quite that sparce yet! My 12YO runs from the room screaming if he happens to see me in my undies.

I don't often get called serious! I'm not really a serious person.

Was playing Buzz music game with friends this eve and chose a slim, busty sexy nurse avatar and DP's DS said "Oh acsec, she looks just like you" cue me grin

DS and I were in the changing cubicles directly at the side of the swimming baths getting back into our normal clothes "oh mummy I love your pants - they are sooo sexy" hmm Wouldn't have minded so much except we were the last ones there and you could hear his voice echoing around the baths - I'm sure I could hear sniggering in the background grin
