Genetics play a great role in the way one looks. Some people eat whatever they want and still look fit, flawless skin,Great hair. Some people have to work hard to maintain atleast decent skin and weight. When it comes to our kids, they are precious to us. As much as I can rant that skin color is not important,weight and height is not important..as a parent in my mind I try to do the best for her. She is also thin but I make sure she does not overeat but eats healthy,drinks enough water etc. My friend has a baby girl same age who is very fair and beautiful.I have seen the child eat and she gives lot of junk food like Cheetos,marshmallows and is very casual about she eats.Also,when the kid goes to school,she herself has mentioned breakfast will be mostly bread jam,oats and she gives school lunches. The child looks so chubby and cute. Yesterday when My cousin came to my house, my friend was also there. After my friend left..my cousin said “ Her child looks so pretty.She takes good care of her daughter.You should ask some tips from her to improve your dd complexion and also some weight gain.Also,start adding some cheese in her diet.She is so thin” That moment....my blood boiled.I was furious.I take utmost care about myself and why will not not care about my daughter! I give her such healthy food and I believe a child should be active even if she or he is thin.Also,I cannot help it if she is not blessed with a great complexion. I can only try my best and I feel the hard work I do for my daughter will show up in her teen years.I give her good calcium,protein,carbs,fiber etc.hope my hard work does not go to drain. I think and do with lot of care about what my DD will eat and she enjoys what I give her but it is not showing on her A mom can not tolerate about her daughter being talked about even in a good intention.I am not saying my cousin meant in a bad way,but I am not able to get over this irritation inside. Wanted to journal my thoughts..
