Today 5 miles outside, bloody toes, not so good. Tomorrow must tape those again for speedwork. Last 10x400 before my Half Marathon!
So Will, my 6 yrs old son who is on 1st grade, comes home yesterday and says: "Mom I got a story to tell you but I don't know if I can tell you because it has the F word in it." Me : "Say that again?" and I am thinking ALREADY?? Ah crap. So I told him to go ahead tell me and he will not be in trouble. He said "Well do you know who Brianna is in my class?" Yes I do. "Well Andrew called her a FAT girl today at recess!!!" I was kind of still waiting for the other F word but no, that was it: FAT! Now I know it is not OK that kids call each other names like Fat but I have to say I was a bit relieved it was not THE F word or the one that Kobe-I-am- an-idiot-Bryant used last week. Fat is easier to deal with. So Will says to me "I know it is not nice to say that but she is kind of chubby and I think she should run like you and eat less fruit snacks!" Smart boy.
