While watching playoff hockey yesterday, Kenyan surprised me by saying he wished he had a broken leg. I am used to this 6-year-old coming up with weird things but had no clue where this one was going. I had to ask.
“Why do you wish for such a thing, Kenyan?” I asked. He explained. “Well if my leg was broken, girls would come up to me and go ‘awww, so cute’ and they would be into me.” Seriously son? Your daddy was a lady’s man and all but at your age, I literally was afraid of the fairer sex. I was in double digits before I started thinking of them as anything but nuisances. You are 6 years old, what do you know about ‘being into you’?
Kenyan insisted that he would like a broken leg and nothing I said could change his mind. Not even telling him how cute he was even without a broken leg. Son, you are only 6. The girls are not going anywhere. And even if they were, it’s not worth getting a broken leg for.
Sometimes they do say the darnedest thing!
