my nieces, Jade and Kira
my niece, Kira
My boyfriend's daughter turned thirteen a couple of weeks ago, and I went to her birthday party. There were about a dozen girls at the party -- all of them age twelve or thirteen. It was a pool party, so all of the kids were in bathing suits. I'd say most were of average build, and one was on the heavy side. ALL of them -- every single one of them -- had cellulite. Just a bit in the butt/thigh area, but it was noticeable. I thought this was SO STRANGE. When did this happen? I thought cellulite was for extra chunky babies and adults. I guess not. My boyfriend said he had noticed the same thing. Just strange. Very strange. Is it from all of the junk food that kids eat? I guess?
Then again, my two nieces are pictured above and they LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE sugar. They are no strangers to junk food! And they look like they work out at a gym! They have ABS! MUSCLE TONE! Freaky! Lucky! I guess it is a matter of genetics? Or maybe the cellulite comes creeping up when kids near the teen years???? Humph.
Note: I did not take these pictures of my nieces. My smarter, prettier and thinner sister (who is to my eyes CELLULITE-FREE at age 41) took them. ;)
