File this one under coversations I never expected to have with my seven year old:

As we're driving to the Aikido lesson last night:

The kid: Darcy says she comes from a sexy family.

Me: Um. Does she? (Darcy's a fellow 7-year-old at the Montessori school.)

The kid: I don't think being sexy is all that important.

Me: Well, good. I don't either, actually.

The kid: Yeah. You're not all that sexy, for instance.

Me: (Blinking): Well, thanks.

The Kid: Or Daddy.

Me: Um. Well. I think Daddy's pretty sexy, actually.

The Kid: (Giggling): And he probably thinks you're sexy too.

Me: Uh-huh, yes, well. But I know what you mean. Other things are more important.

The Kid: Like being smart. And good. That's what I told Darcy.

Me: All right then. Good for you.

Gods, I love our girl. If everything goes well, she will be everything we all could have been, if.
