“Mom, what’s ‘saixee’ mean?” I was watching “So You Think You Can Dance” with my girls and Sophie heard me say that one of the dances was supposed to be ‘sexy.’
Sophie sort of heard me, but didn’t quite get the pronunciation. “What’s ‘saxy?'” she tried again. It was very cute. She sounded a little French. “What’s ‘sixy?'” she attempted yet again. I had to repeat the word several more times until she finally got it right.
She still has no idea what ‘sexy’ means. That’s ok. She’s only 4 5/6 years old.
