You're An Air Head
I am reminded once again the importance of listening and discovery what questions kids are really asking or what are kids really saying.
Driving in the car with 5 kids we hear the 4 year old announce to his sister and her friend, "Ya'll are Air Heads!" This brought about a quick reply, "No we aren't and that's NOT nice!"
As any 4 year old does when they realize they got a rise out of you...he repeats his previous statement.
As any girls would do to a statement like that...they protested even more!
Driving I am trying to decide when to step into this conversation. Praying my 4 year old will be polite and not be so rude to my daughter and her friend I tell him NOT to say that again because it isn't nice. Knowing he is still on the verge of laughing and not conforming to our wishes. I ask him if he knows what that means. Figuring if he realized how rude it was he wouldn't say something like that to the girls.
ME: Brady do you know what Air Heads means?
Me: What does it mean? (as the girls are quite happy I have stepped into this conversation!)
Me: Repeat...Brady what does Air Heads mean?
The entire car: laughing our heads off!
