Some conversations with a six year old just NEED to be preserved for posterity.
This morning, Bella was feeling wistful. “I want a boyfriend.”
I was horrified. “What!? Why? You’re too little. You don’t need a boyfriend.”
“You have Dad. I want my own boyfriend,” she replied indignantly.
I tried to be understanding. “But why? What do you want one for?”
“Because a boyfriend can clean the house for you and help you do all your work. Then you won’t have to do any jobs. If I have a boyfriend I will have a super helper to do all my work.”
“Whaaaaat?!” Where did this child get such an idea from I wonder?
But she’s not done. There’s more. ” And I will get a clever builder boyfriend so he will build me a play house and a playground and a castle with a slide and a movie theatre in it. And he will snuggle me whenever I want him to. And go clean the house whenever its dirty.”
I am speechless. I think this child is making an overly astute observation of me and the Hot Man’s relationship.
