This morning as I was looking at myself in the mirror Seth started to say, "Mami, you look a little bit fat." but before finishing his statement he continued "...I mean plump. You look a little bit plump."

I smiled at him and said, "Oh thank you Seth, plump does make it sound better."

We had read a book where they used the word plump and I told him that it was a nice way to say fat and that you should never tell someone that they are fat because it might hurt their feelings.

Looking the word up did actually make me feel a little better, check it out:
