Real mums share: The many ways our kids have called us fat
Kids say the darndest things. Sure, they don't mean anything by it, but these are some of the funniest ways our kids have called us fat! More here.
Whether or not we'd care to admit it, we're all self-conscious. Mums, as confident and strong as they may be, are no exception to this.
In fact, they may be a little too self-conscious and harsh on themselves. However, the struggles and tolls of pregnancy and motherhood are no joke, and as a result lots of mums sometimes feel a little less than confident and proud with their appearance.
But hey, being a mum ain't easy! You push a child out of you, nurse him, raise him, and maintain your house and marriage and tell me that you still have time to hit the gym, dress yourself in the finest clothes, and wear makeup everyday!
The truth is, mums are typically a little too preoccupied to maintain their ideal level of upkeep. And, honestly, they can do without the reminders. The funny thing is that more often than not, the people reminding mum that "she isn't what she used to be"...are their own kids!
Kids' hilarious inability to filter themselves often yields pretty hysterical results, and today we'll be looking at the times in which these mums' kids were caught "harmlessly body shaming" their mums.
Trust us, these kids meant no harm in uttering these innocuous sentences, but--damn. Those words cut deep.
