Just Say It

What Do You Think? June 11, 2009

Filed under: Life... The Way I See It — candidchatter @ 8:37 am

Just a few questions on my mind lately. I don’t have time to write my opinions right now. Painters coming on Monday, Brianna’s last week of school, Rich working almost around the clock (he only takes time off to sleep — literally), lots of summer parties for one reason or another, keeping the kids busy so they don’t notice Daddy is working so much… I am inundated. So, you give me your take and then I’ll be back sometime to spend time giving my take.

  • Why are there so many fat kids?
  • Why don’t healthy food joints have drive-thru service (like Panera Bread or Subway)?
  • Why is it that my son, who is 3, wears 12 mo and 18 mo shorts, but 2T or 3T shirts?
  • Why is it that certain people in our society think it’s funny when their kids curse? or lie?
  • Why do some people want to cause physical harm to other people?
  • Why do some people think it’s funny to make fun of other people just because they are different?
  • Why am I such a rebel sometimes?
  • Why don’t some women try to look nice? Even if they are overweight? Why not try to do their hair or dress cute or wear a little make-up?
  • Why does cake taste so good? and donuts? and chocolate?

Anyway… just a few of the snippits that go through my mind occasionally. Have at it.

    We actually have one subway in town that has a drive through. But I think it’s a rarity!

    Madeline wears 3T or 4T shirts and fits better in 24 month shorts than anything else. I blame it on the fact that she’s all torso and has no butt.

    Some days I don’t make an effort to look nice. 🙂

    hey hey hey. I haven’t checked into this in forever. But, good questions here. I’m taking a crack at answering them:

    Why are there so many fat kids? *HDM* – because their parents choose to start feeding them things like Happy Meals and Sugar coated cereals at a young age, thus crushing any chance of developing a healthy natural metabolism — one that doesn’t become dependent on the highs and lows of sugars and trans fats.

    Why don’t healthy food joints have drive-thru service (like Panera Bread or Subway)? *HDM* because you get to choose toppings and such, and it’s all fresh and open, not frozen and prepared behind a wall.

    Why is it that my son, who is 3, wears 12 mo and 18 mo shorts, but 2T or 3T shirts? *HDM* – all kids grow & develop at different rates. Maybe he has a long torso? IDK.

    Why is it that certain people in our society think it’s funny when their kids curse? or lie? Because their culture and surroundings have permitted this throughout their own lives and may very well not see what is wrong with it. IDK.

    Why do some people want to cause physical harm to other people? *HDM* – you’ve never felt this way? I think you have I believe you can answer this one.

    Why do some people think it’s funny to make fun of other people just because they are different? *HDM* – again … you have never done this? I mean you all called me COW for how many years just because I had different eating styles than you! hmmm. no, seriously – it’s ignorance and culture and upbringing.

    Why am I such a rebel sometimes? *HDM* – you’re not a rebel, just dramatic. Rebel’s break rules, color outside the lines, don’t care too much about what others think, and don’t think much about others doings or not doings. You’re not a rebel. Sorry.

    Why don’t some women try to look nice? Even if they are overweight? Why not try to do their hair or dress cute or wear a little make-up? *HDM* – Maybe they feel like they look nice. It’s all in the eye of the beholder.

    Why does cake taste so good? and donuts? and chocolate?
    *HDM* – depends who you ask and on what day you ask them. Today I am like … ewww. Nothing terribly satisfying about any of these. Except donuts – I never care for donuts.

    Why are there so many fat kids? b/c people are too “busy” to prepare wholesome, whole-grain foods from scratch for their families, eating fast food becomes a habit, and parents don’t enforce calories in/calories out… b/c the tv is easier than supervising outdoor play

    Why don’t healthy food joints have drive-thru service (like Panera Bread or Subway)? b/c healthy people are more willing to get off their skinny butts to go buy that stuff…

    Why is it that my son, who is 3, wears 12 mo and 18 mo shorts, but 2T or 3T shirts? now, he must have a small butt and a big chest. like superman

    Why is it that certain people in our society think it’s funny when their kids curse? or lie? b/c the 10 commandments are so far removed from their thought process that they can’t help it

    Why do some people want to cause physical harm to other people?
    lack of biblical standards

    Why do some people think it’s funny to make fun of other people just because they are different? maybe b/c they are compelled to respond when a simple, heavy girl isn’t wearing her make=up… ?????????? oh, and people are mean

    Why am I such a rebel sometimes? you are?

    Why don’t some women try to look nice? Even if they are overweight? Why not try to do their hair or dress cute or wear a little make-up? maybe they don’t care and they feel comfortable that way …………

    Why does cake taste so good? and donuts? and chocolate? b/c it is loaded w/ sugar, and, spice and all things nice…

    i like the questions… thought-filled nursing session just took place
