Zaffy overheard me say that a guy on television was sexy. Of course, she asked right away, “what’s sexy?” I said, “it means attractive.” She said, “what’s attractive?” I said, “it means cute.” She said, “so babies are sexy?”
Now, this would have been the perfect time to stop and straighten out the mess I just created. But, of course, I don't do that.
Instead, I said, “Zaff, I’m sorry. Sexy is a big word that grownups use.”
She shot me an annoyed look (she recognizes lazy parenting) and said, “Not that big! It’s only four letters!”
