CJ, who is six, is ALWAYS saying funny stuff. He also tells me how pretty I am, how pretty my hair is, how nice I look, how much he loves me. He'll be a good husband.
The other day I was making pizza for lunch. I opened the oven door and he came running over. I told him to stay back because it was hot. He hugged me from the back and said, "YOU are hot!" I immediately said, "Thanks!" thinking that was a new compliment from him. He then laughed (and he is so.damn.cute. when he laughs) and said, "Not sexy-hot, hot from the heat of the oven." Not "sexy-hot"? Where in the world did he hear that? Did he even know what it meant?
So I asked him and he told me he heard it on a show called Adventure Time. Clearly, I am not paying much attention to what my kids are watching. I asked him if he knew what it meant and he said no, but I am thinking he did, because he used it totally in the right context. I gave him the best definition I could of "sexy-hot", but really, how do you explain that to a six year old? He now thinks sexy-hot is the same as pretty. I think I will have to clear this up in the future.
