I picked Kendall up from school and we were having our usual “what did you do at school today?” chat on the drive home. She told me that during carpool, one of the second grade boys gave her a note.
me: What did it say?
K: It said, “You are H-O-T.”
me: Can I see the note?
K: I ripped it up.
me: How come?
K: Cuz I didn’t like what it said!
I didn’t like what it said either! This isn’t the first time she’s received a note from a boy, but it is the first time I’ve heard that word used. Is “hot” really used to describe first graders now? I mean, of course I think my girls are the cutest things ever, but HOT? Is it just me or is it creepy to call a little kid “hot”?
P.S. Don’t you just love post-trampoline static hair?
