Dear brain,

written on the fridge in magnets is hilarious according to all parties involved.


written on the fridge in magnets is devastating, cruel, horrible, and leads to long discussions about how CLEARLY no one here is a dog and without that belt your pants would fall down so OBVIOUSLY you’re not fat and by the way, didn’t you start this?

Please make a note of it.

    Oh, dear. Shall we call the clinic for eating disorders NOW, just to have them on retainer? I’m not ready for this.

  2. Amy-GO

    What I want to know is, are you carefully squirrelling away a large supply of Valium and Xanax for her teenage years? Because I think it’s the right thing to do, both as a responsible parent and for your own sanity. YEESH, you make me glad for all the testosterone around here!

  3. Zuska

    That would SO play out exactly the same way in my house!

  4. RockStar Mommy

    Your daughter is like a mini version of me. (LUCKY YOU!)

    I think I need to take my mom out to lunch. Maybe a big celebration dinner….she survived both me and my sister.

    Someday Mir, your daughter will appreciate your long suffering efforts and patience… She’ll be 49 or so, but she’ll thank you…and cry a lot.

    “And didn’t you start this?”

    Well what has THAT got to do with anything?

    I think buffi comment may very well be on to something

    Can you give each of them a “check plus” for spelling and just start over?

    The other day my five year old screamed at me: “You’re an A-I-S!”

    I think if I ever figure out what he meant, I might be upset.

  8. Theresa

    Argh! With a teen and a preteen, I can attest to the fact that the girl ego is highly sensitive about issues of weight. Luckily, we have avoided major disasters so far. *knocking on wood*

  9. Shiz

    Oh my. My my my.

    I’m so calling you when my kids do this. Whenever I have kids, that is.
