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.
