"Mommy", my daughter J said to me when I went to pick her up last night "I'm a girlfriend and B's a boyfriend"
"Ok," I said not exactly sure what she was talking about but assuming she was making distinctions between hers and her brother's gender.
As we got into the car I decided I wanted to explore her statement a bit more "So, J" I said, "Tell me what you know about girlfriends and boyfriends"
"Well girlfriends are just...just well girlfriends but boyfriends are impossible"
"Oh really and why is that?" I choked back laughter in order to ask
"Well they're riff raff " she said.
I'm so glad I wasn't drinking anything at that point because it would have been everywhere.
Where she gets this stuff, I have no idea.
But I have to say that she's wise beyond her years - boyfriends,husbands, men whatever can be impossible and yes some of them are "riff raff".
The fact that she's aware of this tells me she's wise beyond her years.
Hell, she's figured out at 4 what many women fail to figure out at 24, 34 , 44 and beyond.
Yep, I won't have to worry about some dude stepping all over her heart...she's already got it all figured out.
Wise beyond her years I tell you...
