Happy Mother’s Day – and thanks for the fat thighs.
May 5, 2008
I debated whether to put this under the Come Here So I Can Smack You heading, but I decided it was too sad. Like many of you, I am shaped a lot like my mother. And I am OK with that. It is who I am. Thank God I am not famous enough to have paparazzi and the attention of The Daily Mail. I always felt sorry for Sarah Ferguson. I was once the fat daughter-in-law (my former sister-in-law was a former model and ballerina) and it was never fun to be the ugly duckling in comparison to the beautiful swan. I thought I understood how she might have felt when she got crap for not being as perfect as Diana.
So, now, here we are, a generation later, and it is Sarah’s daughter who gets the crap. Very sad that we can’t let people decide for themselves whether they are happy with their body.
Bea, beach bodies and the thorny problem of the Mummy gene …

Thirdly, it hits you that a young woman can run, she can hide, but there’s no escaping The Curse Of The Mummy Gene.
