My all time favorite occupation for the last 6ish years has been being an aunt. I absolutely adore my niece and nephews! They are some of the coolest mini-humans I know. There are times (a lot actually) where they’re more fun to hang out with than adults. Almost every Saturday my 2 oldest niece and nephew (5 and 6) and I go out on some sort of adventure and last week was no different.
During our usual weekend shenanigans, I took the kiddos to Hobby Lobby. We were getting t-shirts to decorate back at my place. Upon arriving, my niece (quite innocently) asked me which gym I went to. I was a bit confused by the question so I asked her what she meant. Then my precocious little nephew chimed in. “She means to say that you’re a bit chubby.”
I was so taken aback by the comment that I didn’t say anything for a few seconds. Then, I hysterically bursted into laughter. It was such a frank and honest statement that I couldn’t even be offended by it. Plus, the nonchalant look and tone of his delivery was priceless! I love that kids do not have a filter. They don’t worry about your feelings or if what they say is politically correct. So if you’re looking for an honest answer, ask a child. They’ll tell it to you like it is without sugar coating it. And on that note, it’s time to do my 30 day challenge… 😉
