    Default self esteem crushed by my 2 yo

    My DS has just turned 2. Today he pointed at my chin and said "pink circle".

    Thanks kiddo for pointing out the giant pimple on my chin. Not once, but several times, including the supermarket checkout! And for reminding me I still get pimples at 35!

    Haha how about my DS this morning (2.5) saying "you're very big Mum... you're HUUUUUGE!"

    He's always pointing out my pimples ("pompolls") and I finally got them cleared and he goes "Mummy, where your pompolls go? Maybe haircut better'd it". (for some reason he concluded that the hairdresser fixed my pimples!)

    Years ago when I used to do lots of babysitting/nannying, one of the little girls I looked after was drawing a picture of herself with me. I complimented her on it and she said, 'no its not finished'. She then 'finished' the drawing by putting spots all over my face. It was totally innocent but I was shattered.

    My 22 month old was standing beside me this morning when I pulled off my pajama shirt and looks at me and goes 'ewwwww' pointing at my belly. Then ran away... Mmm thanks. Lol. I was a little crushed

    DD tried to compliment the other day by telling me that when she's older, she's going to be just like me and have a big flobby tummy with lines all over it.

    She mimed holding a giant gut on herself and smiled proudly.

    Well kiddo, I hope that when you're older that you're a size 8 carrying a 10 & a 1/2 pound baby, like just I was. Then we'll have a chat about big flobby tummies.

    ROFL!! Out of the mouths of babes! My nephew asked me years ago why I had a squishy bum because mummy doesn't have a squishy bum (his mother is a stunningly stylish size 8 even after 2 kids). Conversely a compliment I will never forget is when he said to me one night when I was dressed to go out for the first time after having my DS "you you beautiful aunty b you look just like mummy"

    My DD is terrible for this! A little while after I found out I was pregnant this time, I was getting dressed. I was in my room, door closed (but it doesn't latch or lock - old house) and was just at that crucial bending-right-over-bare-bum-to-the-door moment when she walked in... pointed, said "Mummy, your bottom is as big as an elephants!" and ran out laughing her head off. I sat in the room (after covering up my elephant bottom) and cried for ages, until she realised she'd upset me and came to say sorry and give me a hug.
    Only 2 weeks ago, she got DH in the exact same position. He was getting dressed, also bending over when she walked in (the timing on this kid is terrible!) and started peeing herself laughing. I asked her what was funny and she said "Daddy's bottom is a bit black!". (He's dark skinned, obviously, but she had never seen his bare butt before.) He was mortified. Especially when we went to my mum's later and she proceeded to tell nanna that daddy's bum is black too!

    DD busted in on me after my shower and a side effect of pregnancy for me is a pimpley-red-spotted-butt and she starts laughing and then says, "your bum looks like my pen did lots of dotting."

    Kids are so lovely right.

    Lots of our friends were pregnant at the same time. DD (not quite 3 at the time) says to me " do you have a baby in your belly to?" when I said no she said " then why is your belly big?". 😥I told her it was because she made it big when she was growing in my belly.
