Chubby Has Entered The Building

Well it happened. I knew it would one day but I didn’t expect so soon. I’ve worked hard on keeping our home body positive but the truth is that the real world is out there and my daughter would learn other points of views whether I liked it or not.

This morning she mentioned that my arms are chubby. It didn’t really bother me because they are and I’m okay with them. What bothered me is that she knew a word I had purposely never used and understood exactly what it meant. I let her know that using that word can hurt people’s feelings and that anything we say about another person’s body should only encourage them.

She’s only 3 but the battle to show her that all bodies are beautiful and worthy has already begun.
