A Recent Conversation

In the car....

Hope: Dad, do you know the song, "Smack That?"

Loren: (cough, sputter) Uh. Yeah. Why?

Hope: Well, do we have it on our iPod?

Loren: No, Hope. That song is super inappropriate. Why do you even know about that song?

Hope: A kid at school has a little thing that plays songs and it's on there and he told us about it at show and tell. (nice...would have loved to see her teacher navigate that one)

Loren: Well, it's not a very nice song. (And then a fatherly dialogue about how some songs are like that and why we should be careful what we listen to, etc)

Hope: (trying to digest it all) So, is it rude?

Loren: Yeah. It's really rude.



End of story. And then, later that night...

Hope: Mom, did you know that there is a song called 'Smack That'" that my friend told me about and it is really rude.

Me: Yeah. I heard about that.

Hope: Yeah. It's really rude cause the song says, 'Smack that, get on the floor' and he doesn't even say PLEASE!

Me: (stifiling laughter) Well, that's terrible. You should always say please.

Hope: I know. It's really rude!

Ahhhh....you gotta love the innocence of kids.
