My friend, Lori Willard, had a noteworthy experience this week. While riding in the car, her son was looking through the pictures from her recent romantic getaway to Hawaii when “the incident” began.

Jacob (6): Mom, you look fat in this picture.”

Mom: Really?

Jacob: “Yes! Wait, let me see you. Turn around.

[Mom turns to look at him for a second.]

Jacob: Oh, you are a little fat.

[Note from Lori: On a completely unrelated topic, our bathroom needs to be cleaned. I better assign that chore out to one of the children.]
