Also, yesterday evening Nat was fretting about becoming fat. This is not a realistic concern, and I told him he wasn't, and he didn't have the genes for it. I said, "Daddy isn't fat, right?" "No, he isn't, Mommy."
"And", taking my courage in my hands, "I'm not fat, either, so you're not going to be."
Nat scrutinized me closely, and said, "No, you're not fat, you're just a little plump."
