What number is winter?? (My little 80’s girl)

The Setting:  Dance class…shortly after leaving the mini-van.

The Question“What number is winter?” (Miss Silly – 5)

Me: “What hon?  I don’t quite understand the question.”

Miss Silly:  “What number is winter???”  (Said louder and more forcefully – apparently my inability to understand was a volume issue.)

Me: “Still don’t understand babe.  Can you explain a little?”

Miss Silly:  “Well, if summer is 69, what number is winter?”

Me:  {DUMB LOOK – PAUSE}

Miss Silly:  “Like in the song…Summer is 69.” (said sort of sing-songy)

Me: “OHHH – Summer OF 69.”  (I go on to explain the misunderstanding – in 5 year old terms.)

Lesson Learned: You know you listen to and love 80’s music WAY TOO MUCH when a) your daughter has concept questions based on Bryan Adams lyrics and b) you’re ridicuously proud of that fact.

Poor children of children of the 80’s!!

Blue Skies & Blessings,

Lindsey
