The comments from my older daughter are bad but the worst ones come from the 6-year-old. Here are some of her greatest hits: “MOMMY, what HAPPENED???” “Oh NO, does that hurt???” Or my personal favorite,
“Is THAT going to happen to ME…when I’m OLD???”
Lucy can’t really be blamed because she is just following in the grand tradition of Nude Parent Shaming. Why, I clearly remember my own mother standing in front of me without a stitch on and SCREAMING at me for giggling. I also remember asking my father why he was carrying all that stuff around in his underwear.
So, I guess it’s just my turn. It’s OK because in due time I’ll be able to pay my children back with comments like, “You’re wearing THAT?” or “Oh sure, you THINK you love him,” or my own mother’s personal favorite, “I know you WANT more cake, but do you NEED it?”
Sad to have body shaming by kids
