Refreshing

This summer has been great for me and the girls.

I'd hit the gym for two hours, get them out of the gym play center, head into the locker room where our suits, sunscreen and lunch was stored...get changed, lathered up with spf and head on out to the pool for two hours of lunch and swimming.

Towards the end of this blissful summer routine ... we headed into the lockerroom to get ready to go to the pool as usual. The girls and I headed towards the corner where I kept all our stuff... and ran smack dab into...the back side of a larger woman who was proabably 60-75 years old sitting on a the bench with only a bra on. Luckily for us, it was the back of her.

Her derriere was spilling onto the bench. I immediately had these thoughts. Please, don't let the girls say anything. Of course they're going to say something. Holy H---, how am I going to handle this?

AGG: (as loud as can be possible) Mommy! WHY IS HER BUM SO BIG?

QS: (to the lady with bum) I am so sorry!

AGG: MOMMY IT IS SO BIG and FLOPPY! WHY IS IT SO BIG AND FLOPPY? (giggle)

DD: YEAH, IT'S A BIG BUM BUM (giggle)

QS: I am so sorry... I ...

Lady with BUM: No, no no... it's fine. It's actually refreshing.

QS:(mortified, but relieved) Thank you.


... I will remember to use that exact phrase when I'm sitting there one day with my bum spilling over. Refreshing... yes, yes it was.

They just brightened my day. Cute and mortifying, both.

Thanks for the laugh. While we were at D-land on Wed. Rebecca saw a huge woman and as we walked past said, mommy, that lady is fat.
We've talked about not doing this in the past, but somehow it slipped. Motherhood is full of interesting moments...

Thanks ladies.

Hey, I guess you can't blame a kid for being honest...and giggling about it.
