Parental victory of the week!

On the way home from church last night:

Girl Child: Mom? What's the worst thing you can say to a boy?

Me: *dying of hysterical laughter*

GC: What?

Boy Child: I know!

Me: *wiping tears away*

BC: I know what it is, Girl Child!

GC: What? No, really. What?

Me: I'm sorry. I can't tell you.

GC: Mom! What is it?

Me: I'm sorry, I just can't tell you.

GC: Are we too young for this?

Me: Yes. And you will be. FOREVER.

BC, smugly: I'm a boy. I know what it is.

Me: What do you think it is?

BC: I'm not going to say. But it involves bananas.

Me: *pulling off the road so I don't wreck the car because I'm laughing so hard*

Really now.

The worst thing you can say to a boy involves tropical fruit?

No wonder I'm so confused.

I sit here in Minneapolis and seriously know NOTHING of tropical fruit or anything else useful either.

love you all, Val

Thanks for playing along! It took me a while to come up with a good answer that didn't involve bananas. Kid are so funny and they just don't get it.

So what's the answer? I guess it depends on the guy.

My 4 year old knows more about how to hook guys than I do. And no it's not as bad as it sounds. Last year in preschool she had a Wednesday boyfriend and a Thursday boyfriend. This year, there's just one interest, but he likes her back so.... Is there any wonder why I got through so much Moscato?
