So this kid not only understands that her dad might need to back off on the Twinkies, but she also knows that saying something like that can be seen as unfriendly.
However, as it is with most kids and quite a lot of people, her mouth was moving just a little faster than her brain. She still got the original message across, even if she tried so, so hard to adjust the skid. It still landed, but at least she tried.
Yes, They Are, Honey
Sometimes it's just impossible to ignore the truth. When three guys or gals have come together and are all of a bigger size, then sometimes kids will pick up on the gathering and state the obvious. No, it might not be kind, but that's the kind of article this is.
Interestingly, the mom doesn't seem to care that much that the kid is pointing out something that could very likely be hurtful. She just nods in agreement and goes about her life. Maybe the kid does this all the time, and she's just tired of trying to tell them off.
Yeah, But Which Shape?
The thing about this is it's true. Like, obviously. Everybody's head is a shape. That's how stuff works. Any object that exists in the real world is a shape. Was this supposed to be a brutal attack? Were they just pointing out the obvious?
And the big question: was this comment actually hurtful, as the tale seems to say, or was it just making a goof about how kids can be hurtful – even if this comment didn't exactly cut that deep? Hard to say, but we wouldn't burst into tears if we heard that our head is “a shape.”
This story comes to us from long in the past, when the very kid in question recounts it and still feels bad. Sure, maybe Dad could have been around a little more, and maybe been a little better of a dad, but that still makes this kind of thing hard to stomach for a father.
Yeah, maybe Heather's daddy has a more traditional dad-vibe to him, but plenty of dads try really hard and don't get the accolades that they might rightly deserve. We don't know this relationship, but the kid feels bad now that they are all grown.
Like, SO MUCH PRETTIER
Divorce can be really tough on kids, but sometimes there are good things at the same time. Like a really really, really pretty new girlfriend for daddy. Is that a good thing for the kid?
Kids are actually drawn to people that are naturally more attractive, but this seems like an odd thing for a kid to go on and on about. And on and on and on about. Is her mom a hunchback or something like that? Well, at least she wasn't saying it to her mom directly.
