Out of the Mouths of Babes…er…Boys

Warning: Please do not drink hot beverages (or any beverages for that matter) whilst reading this tidbit.  Thank you in advance.

Bug Boy takes after his Momma. We are both hyperlexic, totally awesome readers, obsessed with word puzzles and spend much of our free time playing on-line word games or filling in the monthly word game books.  This evening he begged for some computer time (never, ever allowed on a school night) but he has been terribly stressed out and anxious and I know how much it can relax him and alter his mood.  Needless to say, I gave in.  Fifteen minutes.  Bad Mommy.

He picked one of my favorite games.  He and his little girlfriend (they’d both protest at me saying that but the truth is he’s a boy, she’s a girl and they are friends.  Hence, girlfriend) sat and looked for words.  They chatted and giggled and had a good time.  And just before time was up, I gave him the warning.  And the last word he picked was…





“Mom!  What does S-L-U-T mean?  I just got a SLUT!  And it was worth 2500!  WOOHOO!  SLUT!  SLUT!”

Yeah, I know how to raise ’em.
