"Mama Is Fat" Daughter's Snarky Comment Prompted A Genius Response From Her Mom
July 27, 2018
What would you do if your own child called you an unflattering name or disrespectfully described you without really knowing what they're saying? One mom knew exactly how to handle the situation and it turned into a very valuable lesson.
Know what you mean
Body positivity activist Allison Kimmey was spending a nice day with her children by the pool. When she called it a day and told her kids they had to go home, she was unpleasantly surprised when she heard her daughter say to her brother "mama is fat".
Took a couple days off social and immersed myself into my family and enjoying every single second without my📱. I don’t even have any pictures- which feels like a sin - did it even happen then if I didn’t document it?! Yes, yes it did. I have to remind myself that it’s not all a show, it’s not always a photo opp, this is life and it’s meant to be lived within the moment. It’s meant to be cherished. It’s meant to be spent with the ones you love the most. It’s meant to push you closer to God and further from the need to know and control everything. My hope is that if you haven’t had a few moments this weekend to decompress and look around you to find all the beautiful things in your life, do that now. If something is stressing you out, release it for a moment and feel the ease of trusting that everything is going to work out. If you are wondering if you are loved, you ARE. You are worthy. You are meant to be here. It will never all make sense, but there’s something I know to be certain and that is that you are on purpose. Happy Sunday babes! Just do you Xoxo Allie
