Fat Kids.

Our kids are fat, and we think its cute.fat-kid

Its not cute when a 3 year old is given a cake at his birthday and devours it while everyone takes pictures and claps.

Its not fair to give in to the sugar addiction we gave our children.

Its not okay to steal away a childhood because we were too weak to lead by example.

Its not easy to let our child be the fattest kid on the playground when their friends are playing basketball.

Its not appropriate to fill our grocery cart full of junk food soour children can binge when they are bored.

Its not fun when our children cannot fit into the desk at school.

Its not our fault. Right. Let’s keep telling ourselves that so we don’t have to actually do anything about it.
