(No way could I put a fat kid picture in here – the internet is cruel!)
Came across this gem today:
Must be the truth hey, it’s on ninemsn!!!
Where oh where do I start……..
Firstly, who paid the kid to star in this ad hey? I hope he got a packet for being the token fat kid – was he born by caesar?
I’ve had 2 Caesars. Moomoo decided that after a 36 hour labour, he didn’t really want to come out – hence, emergency caesar took place.
Monkeyboy decided that he like jumping on my bladder the whole pregnancy and was breach and after 36 hours prior, well let just say that yes, I did elect for a caesar second time round (judge me, dare ya)
They were both boombala’s as babies – bonny boys they would have been called in the day – little buddhas we called them. We got the usual comments like ‘at least they when they’re sick they have some reserves’ blah blah blah. Look, I like seeing a little porka baby – porka means healthy.
And guess what, they grew out of it to. The boys are trim, fit and healthy and as shocking as this may be, wait for it, I think we can contribute that to them having a decent diet and a fit and active childhood – they ya go, I know it was shocking.
Caesars are a part of everyday life. Women have them for all sorts of different reasons. Having gone through the healing time of a caesar, don’t know if I would recommend it by hey, do what you gotta do! Why do we need Mothers to feel more inadequate for having a caesar? I mean, 500 years ago, I probably would’ve died giving birth.
So to wrap it up, let’s not blame the caesar for fat kids. Lets look at their life styles – I know, hard to fathom but give it a chance. Whilst our boys are no angles when it comes to junk food, it is a pretty well-balanced diet coupled with being active that keeps them pretty healthy. Stop making Mothers feel more inadequate than they already do for a change. Hows about spending the money and educating people on choosing a more healthy lifestyle and putting more money into kids sports and crazy things like that! (Note: Sarcasm here)
Because this Granny rocks!
