It’s true, kids say and ask the darnedest things! The other night my daughter was getting ready to read a book to me. We were sitting on the couch and she hadn’t revealed which book she was planning on reading to me. The she popped the question, “What is a hoe?”
Kids learn the craziest things at school and at daycare, especially playing with older kids. Because of this I didn’t really know what to make of this question. Was she referring to the slang word that she happened to happen to hear from a friend or an older kid? Or was she referring to the gardening tool?
I had to make a quick decision here and decided that my daughter’s innocence was still intact. I quickly answered with, “It’s a gardening tool that a person uses to dig and move dirt.”
Quickly she responded, “Well, that’s akward!” All I could respond with is, “Yep!”
Whew, I dodged that bullet!! Do you have any stories of funny things your kid has said or asked? If so, please mention them in the comments section below.
