Jacob's Hot Girl

Jacob came tearing through the door after school yesterday with a huge grin on his face.

Jacob: "Mom! I got me a hot girl!"

Me: *blank stare, cricket chirping* "Say-a what who now?"

Jacob: "I got me a hot girl!"

Me: "A hot girl?"

Jacob: "Ya! Look I'll show you!"

I gingerly perch on the edge of the couch next to him, as though I was preparing to leap away from a fire.

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect here. He'll be six years old next month.

He reached into his backpack and pulled out a magazine. *gasp*

Relief came flooding when I read the title, "Parks and Recreation".

But relief was brief as I started wondering what "hot girl" he had found in the magazine.

I started biting my nails. Finally he found the page he was looking for and pointed to the picture.

Jacob: "See? A hot girl!"

I finally breathed.

Then laughed. Probably more than was necessary.

Oh blessed innocence.

Apparently shooting a bow makes you "hot". What you look like is totally irrelevant.

I suspect he's really going to like "Hunger Games" some day.

Hotness is in the eye of the beholder, apparently...

Don't worry. Not too many years he really will have a hot girl.

Ha! So funny. My 4 year old recently told me he is in love with a girl at school. Yeah, that was a shocker. It was "because her hair is yellow". The innocence is cute now, but I'm dreading when they get older and are in love for real! Love your blog. -Meredith
