41. I could stand to lose a few pounds
We were watching TV last night and there was the weight loss commercial with the man and woman in stick figures where the man loses more weight than the woman (can't recall the product)...anyway, was watching it with my granddaughter and she said "that's what you and papa need".
I almost fell off the couch because I thought it was funny. However, I did tell her that statements like that could hurt feelings and she shouldn't say things about how big or small or short or tall people are. She started crying and asked if it "hurted" my feelings.
I told her not at all--I don't care what people think but some people do which is what she needs to worry about.
There were two lessons--#1 not to say mean things and #2 if someone does, don't let it bother you.
