I'm fat!

She really knows how to make a face. She raises her eyebrows, narrows her eyes, looks intensely and also makes a weird gesture with her lips. This is when she is looking at her pictures on the iPad. At the end of this exercise, she mostly says without hesitation. "I don't like this". Then with some luck, she stops at a picture and says happily, "I like it".

This is the same kind of response I get while shopping for clothes. Be it for her or for her mom, she makes a face before giving her verdict. This is all fine with me. What cracked me up was something else. She looks at the mirror on the wall. She looks at herself from various angles and says "I'm fat". I didn't know how to react. Believe me, she is nowhere near fat. After being unwell last week, she lost all the adipose tissues gained from the brief visit of her grandparents.

Now, the big question is if she is really 6 or a grown up. The big mystery for her is when. When is she going to turn 8 years old ? She wants to grow up. According to me, she is already growing up too fast.

  7. haha I ant stop laughing since you have just penned few of my thoughts. I have been lamenting that my only daughter who is just 8 at times behaves like a teenager:-)I-pad, phew- its not mine- it's only hers!
    its really a phase we will enjoy with them. The time will not return and this is time we can give them our best.

    1. :) Thank you for sharing your experiences and thoughts. Luckily for me, my daughter knows what is mine and she doesn't trespass. But she asks me permission to use those.
