    How to Get Fat

    i. have children
    ii. eat their leftovers.

    Seriously, YOU try telling my son that English Muffins have 'no crust'. And i'm hardly going to throw this goodness into the bin, am I ?



    Unless you're talking about the bin that is my stomach, that is. MmMMmmm..


    In other news, don't blog so much in the next week coming up, ok ?

    I'm going away somewhere apparently sunny ( um, tried on some swimwear yesterday and yeah - it's not so much the belly, but the cottage-cheese legs that have gone out on milk-production storage sympathy. Add to that milky. pasty. white. chunky. chunder )


    And my bloglines is already pretty laden in guilt....

    I bags sitting next to H&B on the beach.

    My son insists that English Muffins and crumpets have crusts too. Oh, and so do pizzas. He also pulls the skin off sausages because "it's too crispy". There are loads of crust eating (& crispy eating) opportunities in our house.

    You could easily have taken that photo at my house. And of course you can't throw that goodness in the bin, 'specially if it has raspberry jam on it.

    You're allowed to be fat when you're pregnant. It's in the rules.

    bet my custard legs can match your cottage cheese.... I just re read that - gross

    That was the BEST thing about pregnancy - you could feel like that about all the wobbly bits but it did not matter because all people notice is the tummy - have a lovely sunny snoozy break - look forward to you getting back - we've got a few days in Brisvegas and the Gold Coast this weekend ourselves

    What is it with these kids aged 3? Who told them about crusts? Mine used to eat the entire sandwich/toast and now all of a sudden there is all this crust left on the plate. Grrrr.

    Here's a funny one, the Big Fella cut all the crust off her sandwich the other day, low and behold she ate the thing but left a "crust" on the plate!!! Craziness and cuteness all in one.

    No one eats crust. I even cut it off my own sandwiches and give it to the dogs.

    Come north to Townsville. The weather is lovely.

    Don't come to Cairns. It's been rainng today. But at least it is still warm. *sigh*

    Sometimes Monet eats her crusts, sometimes she doesn't. Go figure.

    My son is 5 and I still can't convince him that crumpets and muffins don't have crusts. Been trying for years now. I've given up...

    Enjoy your break :)

    That's why I loved being pregnant, having an excuse.

    And just because you have bloglines doesn't mean you have to read us all when you get back, it's endless really, this blogging thing. Sometimes I click mark all as read and then catch up in the future (if you know what I mean).

    Enjoy your holiday!

    sooz said...

    Yeah. Oh yeah.

    Hmmm the best thing about being a mum is you can eat your kids' crusts... I ate my daughter's pizza crust tonight as an example and it was okay because her germs are my germs.

    It's okay to eat other people's food if you share genetic material isn't it? That's the rule... right?

    Gina said...

    Have some guiltless fun. Pamper and enjoy! We'll miss you.

    velcro said...

    have a lovely holiday. I keep forgetting that it is your winter and wondering what the fuss about going to the sunshine is all about.

    Lazy cow said...

    Have fun. Get a matching sarong thingy to go with the bathers and never take it off. That's what I do.

    meggie said...

    Have a great break!
    And you only need to worry about your legs when passing strangers try to dip their potato crisps in them!

    crafty said...

    Everything has a crust didn't you know? Even if you cut the crust off, it has a crust.

    I am too grossed out by Meggie's suggestion to even contemplate a comment on the bathing suit front. Or behind.

    Carmi said...

    I feel your pain. I just can't leave our kids' leftovers alone. I often hang back at the kitchen table, hoovering whatever they leave behind because I can't bear to waste food.

    Must be a vestige of my childhood or something.

    Have a wonderful vacation. And pay no heed to aesthetics. As long as you're enjoying yourself, nothing else matters.

    You are ridiculously, spectacularly wise and perceptive.

    Muzbot said...

    That's just great. I never knew they had crusts either. But I'm still not a fan of crusts to this day, so will leave them behind too- unless it's the crust from the pizza from my fave pizza joint in Manly. MMMmmmm.

    Damselfly said...

    Hee hee! I see how this could happen. And here I thought I was going to get skinny by sharing my food with the boy....

    Have fun! We want to see pics!

    Go forth in bathers and enjoy!!!!I often think about all the things I didn't/wouldn't do because I KNEW I was too fat and people would be LOOKING at me and JUDGING me. Now with a beautiful daughter (and son) and having lost some of that weight I put on while eating the crusts, I am determined that I will do whatever I want regardless of size. And I never want my kids to forgo an activity for fear that some other busybody might LOOK at them sideways.
