Conversation with my friend's daughter about Thanksgiving. She's 5 years old:
I'm really excited to eat turkey!!!
Turkey is great! Do you help mommy cook in the kitchen?
Not really I just like to eat. I don't know how to cook!
Oh it's really easy. You just have to play around with the stove and stick things in the oven. (F*CK! Did I really just say that to a 5 year old?)
Stoves are HOT! I don't touch them!
Good girl. Just making sure.
Parenting is hard.
