Fat Momma

Robert Farrar Capon writes:

Children love fat mothers.  They like them because while any mother is a diagram of place, a picture of home, a fat one is a clearer diagram, a greater sacrament.  She is more there. I can think of no better wish to all the slender swans of this present age than to propose them a toast: May your husbands find you as slim as they like; your children should always remember you were fat.

~Bed and Board: Plain Talk About Marriage, p 66

No way I’m adding anything to this.
