H is for Hot

I don't know about you, but when I was 8, this is what I thought "hot" meant.
Well, we were taking the "hard quiz" for the Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle video on on Brain Pop, Jr today. This was the question:

Annie read it to us in her super sweet voice and I hear, " he's not!"

I (of course) said, "No he's not what?" since I had just been talking about "grown up talk" again the day before.

Flashback to earlier this week. Same kid as above. He hugged me at least 73 times. Everyone cracked up when he did.
Kid's friend: He liiiiiiiikes you!
Me: Of course he likes me! I'm his teacher!
Kid's friend: No, he thinks you're pretty!
Me: Of course I'm pretty! All teachers are pretty!
Them: speechless
Me: Let's be appropriate. (wah wah waaaah wah wah)

Back to today.

I was hoping he'd just drop it and that nobody had heard.

Him: He's not hot.

Me: How do you know? Do you have a thermometer to take his temperature?

Ms. G (our VE teacher): There's only one kind of hot. (Don't worry, I'll show her how has 27 definitions.)

Them: Not that kind of hot!

Ms. G: Well, there's only one kind, so I don't know what you're talking about.

Stella: YOU KNOW! Like when a boy thinks a girl is HOT!

Me: (shaking my head) Okay! Let's answer this question!

They can't POSSIBLY mean this:

They just can't! They're 8 years old! That confirms it though, I'm not having kids. I can't handle it.
Pretty soon, we'll have to start Human Growth and Development in Kindergarten! Sheesh!

Have a great weekend. I hope it's not too "hot" for you!



  1. Pretty sure some of my kids need HG&D in K...smh...we have convos almost daily about how we don't have boyfriends/girlfriends in school! Funny thing is that the most "liked" boy doesn't want to be bothered by the girls...then there's this other boy... LOL

    Hope you have a "hot" weekend, enjoy some FL sun! :)

  2. HAHAHA :) We have almost daily conversations about how you don't have boyfriends/girlfriends in 2nd grade! I don't remember getting that talk when I was 8, oh the times are a changing...hehe :) Have a great weekend!
