It's Hot we don't post too many narratives on here, so let us know if you appreciate this one!

The other day, at the dinner table, Aleia was commenting over and over again that her dinner was hot. This continued even after we put hers in the freezer for a couple minutes, and she even blew on each bite before putting it on her mouth. Having tested the food ourselves, Dixie and I both determined that the food was in fact NOT hot, and probably would have been too cold for either of our tastes.

So, after yet another "It's hot dad" comment, I did what any other quick-thinking dad would do: I pulled in a "your mom" comment. So, here is the dialog that ensued:

Me, to Aleia: "Your mom's hot!"

Aleia, after touching Dixie on the arm: "Nooooo, mommy's not hot."

Dixie: "Aleia, hot is also another way to say 'beautiful,' so when a boy says you're hot, it means you're really beautiful."

Aleia: "I'm hot!"
