Kirstie Al­ley’s Kids Were Kind Of En­ablers

Tiny six-year-old son: Why do I look so fat?
Mom: (looks puz­zled)
Tiny six-year-old son, point­ing at his re­flec­tion in el­e­va­tor doors: Look at me, I look fat!
Mom, smil­ing, re­lieved: Oh! No, it’s just that re­flec­tion is dis­tort­ed, sweet­ie.
Tiny six-year-old son: Is that why you looked so fat in those pic­tures?
Mom (af­ter pause): …yes.
