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.
