Tonight my husband and I played Scrabble Jr. with our boys, ages 5 and 7. The 5 year old lined up his letters and spelled out the word, "hot." My 7 noticed it and pointed it out. Then he asked, "I wonder if he means hot temperature hot, or hot like a lady hot?"
My husband and I exchanged glances that asked the same silent question, "hot like a lady hot?"
So I asked, "Honey, what do you mean, 'hot like a lady'?"
"You know mom, like a good looking woman."
Now my husband and I knew he knew what he was talking about, but we weren't ready for the 5 year old to join in. "Like a beautiful woman," my 5 year old said.
Then my 5 year added an "E" to his row of letters and said "See mom, now it's H-O-T-E, hottie!"
My husband and I couldn't hold back our laughter.
