Advice from a 5 year old

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

Too cute,...

One of our dancers brings her 5 year old to class every week. Jada thinks I'm really cool because I play with her. Last night she looked at me very seriously and said "If I ask you something, I don't want you to get mad, ok?" I said ok and she then asked me why I was so fat. I told her it's because I eat too much and because I don't eat healthy foods. She then told me, in no uncertain terms, that I was to start eating healthy foods: carrots, seaweed, mushrooms, california rolls, rice and fruit. She then told me that california rolls were the BEST because they have rice and seaweed and veggies!

She then asked me to draw a map to my place and she took it to her mom and told her she had to drive her there so she could make sure I was eating healthy meals.

She relented a bit at the end though - she very seriously told me I could have "a little bit - and I mean a very little bit - of chocolate".

This kid is hooked on seaweed wrappers for sushi - she eats them like candy. I swear she's going to be the next Jillian Michaels.

    I don't mind answering questions from little kids in the 3 to 6 age range. They aren't malicious and they're curious and, lets' face it, I'm the biggest thing they've ever seen. I'd rather have them ask honest questions than be afraid of me. I also answer them honestly. It's funny how the little ones will absorb the info and that will be the end of it. I've never had a little kid ask me twice.

    I do object to kids older than that saying anything. By the time they hit school age, the parents should have started teaching them about how to act in public. I'm equally honest to them too - and I'll tell them up front that their questions are rude.

    Yes kids defintely give honest opinions and because of their age then can get away with, why does that stop as we grow older? Maybe if people were always asking me why I was fat, I would have done something earlier??????

    Hmmm... well I have a 5 yr old, so I clicked on the blog to see what cute thing a 5 yr old said cuz they can be priceless. I'm not that impressed. I've told my 5 yr old guy to say that people are "chubby" because it is a kinder word. And to not mention it to a chubby person or to me in public. But good for you for being sporty about it all.

    LOL! Kids are hilarious. My 3 year old keeps me in stitches. And if you ever want an honest opinion, ask a kid!
