So Proud

I m so proud of own lil’ gal Starling.  As some of you may remember she was carrying a teeny bit of weight after the holidays.  I knew she wouldn’t want to be bullied for being fat, and girls can be so cruel nowadays, so I put her on a diet.  At first she protested, but once she saw a lil’ success she really embraced her new regimen and she looks great.

Can you see how much thinner she is through the cheeks?  She looks fantastic, no?

I am so proud of her!

On a different subject, I am wondering if anyone has trouble with their tween daughters fainting at school?  Starling fainted four times this week.  I know it is probably nothing but the school is totally overreacting and wants me to take her to a doctor or something.  I am thinking I might go see the guy in the homeopathic department at Whole Foods and see what he says.  Maybe she just needs some Rescue Remedy or something.

    Starling just needs some essential oils. They cure everything even ebola and cancer. I’m sure that there is an oil that will prevent fainting!

    The peer pressure on tween girls is awful. Plus all that homework, and getting accused of bullying? Perhaps she needs a little break from school for a few weeks, just to concentrate on girl time with you. You could go to the gym together every day, like a spa camp! And buy some new outfits to reward her for the weight loss. I’ll bet even her feet are skinnier, so new shoes, too!

    I know you dote on all two, er, three of your children but maybe the boys are just getting too much positive attention. Would Robert handle you son, er, both sons for a bit so you and Starling could have a fun getaway to Disneyland or something? Robert gets to go away all the time – heck, even Karen is off at her lake house a lot, it sounds like – so maybe it’s your turn!

    I have even heard of some families bringing along a special tutor for vacation, to really get to know the child AND her mom. If there’s someone at Starling’s school whose teaching you really admire, maybe he (or she) could join you two on a getaway. Or maybe Starling could stay with another female role model, like Karen, for a few days while you spend Spring Break on a special retreat with an educator, learning about your own feminine power so you can share that knowledge with your daughter when you get back home.

    Also, where did you buy that perfect shade of blush Starling’s wearing? I want it!

    That fainting is probably just a phase Starling is going through. I wouldn’t worry about it at all. Besides, now that her eyes are so big this is your chance for real internet Mommy fame. Starling could be the next important artistique waif, like the ones that guy claimed he painted when it was really his wife who did it.

    Starling will owe it all to you! But the important thing to remember is that ethics don’t matter if there’s personal gain involved.

      OOOOOH! I would love to get her some ritalin. I wonder how large a dose she can get? I have heard that it is wonderful even for adults, but of course I want it for her. I’ll bet Merlin and Hummus need some too.

        Ritalin is great stuff. My son takes it and stays up half the night. I unplug the playstation and have him clean the house (especially my daughter’s room) to earn it back.

        No Keurig. He grinds fresh beans. He doesn’t WANT to, but I caught him doing stupid bicep pumps in the mirror and decided there and then that his arm exercises should benefit ME. No more dumbbells for the dumbbell. I hate it when boys primp, don’t you? I mean, girls are meant to look pretty. Little boys are always getting into trouble and making it up to me.
