Most nights when I've put Chick to bed, I jump in the bath and try and have a long hot soak and a quiet half an hour. A couple of nights ago whilst I was trying to do this, Chick got out of bed and came into the bathroom and we had this conversation:
Me: Why are you out of bed?
Chick: I have a question.
Me: Go on.
Chick: What a 'menage a trois'?
Me.....*thinking* F*ck, how do I answer that?? Quick, think of an answer!!!
Me: erm....in what context? Where have you heard it?
Chick: Wait a minute and I'll show you.
Me...... *thinking* WTF is she going to show me?
Chick: Look, it's in one of Katy Perry's songs.....shows me the song words.
Me..... *thinking* maybe that wasn't such a great birthday present, erm....still not sure what to say!
Me: I'm not sure Chick because it's something French (yes, I'm a cop out!!)
Chick: Maybe I'll ask the French teacher then?
Me: (looking aghast!) I'm not sure that's such a good idea hunny, some of Katy's lyrics are quite rude and the French teacher may not be able to tell you.
Chick: Ok, guess I'll find out when I'm older. Night, Mum.
Me: Night babe!
I must try thinking quicker when she asks me random questions like this!!!! Side note to self: Check the lyrics before she gets the CD!!
