on a different note…

My son is almost 3 years old now. Trying to teach him numbers. He seems to recognise most of the numbers atleast till 10. There are times when he just keeps saying something or the other…when he lists the numbers…it is not always in order…he just skips a few of them. That is not what is funny…but there are times when he goes “onety, nineteen, twenty, thirty!!”
Funny how the brain works right?? When I think about that…though I laugh when he says that..I think as to why it is ten, eleven and so on…why not onety, onety one, onety two and so on?? Might make it a wee bit easier?!?
Well if one can get used to Pluto not being a planet….why not this?? 🙂
As a matter of fact, I am still not able to say that there are only 8 planets…so I guess I would not be too keen on a change like this in listing numbers…still…something to think about right? 🙂

Fat?!?

Well, why does it hurt so much when someone else tells you that you are fat…though you know that you probably can be termed that?!? You probably call yourself fat/ overweight and the likes. Is it because it reiterates those facts? When is it ok for someone to tell you that you are fat? To me, it is when the person is genuinely interested in you and your well-being. Otherwise, they better not comment (even to accept when you say you are fat 🙂 ) cos it is none of their worry.
On the same lines, how does one react to remarks like this on one’s appearance -be it your weight, your looks, clothes…whatever!?!? Obviously everyone likes appreciation…but when it comes to the negative remark..how does one deal with that? If the person is close enough to you and you trust them, I suppose then I would take their comment into consideration. But just a “friend” saying something , though I know it should not matter, it hurts. How does one deal with that?? How does one react to such people?
As I have said earlier I don’t think I have the knack to deal with people 🙂
