I love that my husband always tell me the truth, even when I might not like it. Let me set the scene: It’s the classic “do these pants make my butt look big?” What most women are looking for when they ask this question is reassurance. When they ask this they want their husband to say ”of course not you look great” even if it’s a bald face lie. I want the truth and I get it. One day I asked Papa Bear the butt question & he said ”sorry it’s not the pants” The question really should be “Do these pants make my butt look larger than it really is?” I for one know I have a tush the size of half a VW. I sure don’t want to make it look worse than it is. No one wants to have a Buick butt. Most of the time I don’t ask anymore. My weight loss has not been progressing as fast as I would like. I’ve even begun practicing my own version of “Don’t ask, Don’t tell.” So recently I was surprised when Papa Bear looked at my butt and said “Those do.” I said “do, what?” He replied “those pants do make your butt look big” All I have to say is “Anyone want a pair of dark green jeans?”

I had a truthful moment with the Boss this afternoon when I looked at her and said, "Wow! Nice doo. You need to look at your hair in the mirror." She had been napping on the couch. And she didn't even ask.

I'm laughing WITH you! Mine actually forgot something for show-and-tell and the letter was B---he pointed to my back, lifted my shirt and said, "B--Back fat." Niiice.
