I Wish I Could Blame The Public Schools For This...

But sadly in this area I think Kid is the bad influence.

"Can I write 'Ruby is HOT' on this?" Kid asks.

"Nooooo. God! I don't even want you to say that." I reply gaging a little.

"Kids can't be hot." I explain.

"Can kids be sexy?" Kid inquires.

This after Kid ran out of school and blurted...

"I've decided which boy in school to have a crush on!"

"You did? Does he know?"

"Well, sort of. I did tell him I'd kiss him if I beat him in a race."

Thankfully, for all of us, he won.

I like her strong voice! It's great that she knows what she wants.

And yet boys are totally clueless until much, much later. It is a riot.

This is an ongoing thing with her... it is so funny. She started having *boyfriends* in preschool (which she acknowledges don't know they are her boyfriends). Just the other day we were talking about our neighbor boy who was shooting vegetables with some kind of launcher thing... and I said "boys like stuff like that" and she said "yeah... they don't like girls" regretfully. Then she wanted to know at exactly what age they would like girls. I said they'd be into it when they were 15. And she said "yeah, girls start being in love when they're like 4". Although I'll say she is the only one of her friends that is so obviously into boys and from such an early age. It's hilarious. I was the exact same way. Which is also hilarious.

I'm on the hunt. I think I could cajole her into it.

Eating With Hudson,
Oh she knows what she wants... and thankfully we don't have to worry about her getting it just yet ;)

Ramona!!! I loved her, LOL - all I can say is Good Luck!

Mr Furious said...

I'm thinking she picks this stuff up from Project Runway. Damn you, Michael Kors!

Kiki said...

I love that Ruby says just what is on her mind!!! I wonder where they pick it all up??

I rent the Smitty Goons out. It just costs a couple of good beers from Jolly Pumpkin or Arbor Brewing.

Mrs Furious said...

She'll scandalize them. She spends her entire recess stalking boys down and trying to kiss them. And she's not ashamed to admit it.

I'm with Mr F I think Project Runway & Dancing with The Stars are to blame for the "hot" and "sexy" terminology. And now she's all about it. She just saw my blog and her picture in this post and said "I look so HOT."

I like her confidence. I suppose it's better to have to reign them in than try to create confidence where there is none.

Please don't remind me I said that in a few years when my own daughter is calling herself hot. She's only 21-months-old, and she's already saying things like, "I pretty" and "I funny". Fortunately, she's also saying "I mart" (I smart).

Mr Furious said...

Oh, God. Definitely "Dancing With the Stars!" Bruno is over the top with that shit.
