So Demon Baby continues to overwhelm me with all sorts of romantic talk. I was sitting on the couch when he climbed up next to me. He said he wanted to tell me something. He leaned in close, moved my hair and whispered, "How are you my sexy lovely?"

But that's not all.

Yesterday, I was making him his favorite dish of noodles. He walked into the kitchen, hands on hips, and said, "I know the secret now."

"What secret?" I asked, stirring the pot.

"The secret of getting girls."

"Sure you do."

"No, really. It's all in the dancing."

Now, as an aside, Demon Baby has inherited from his father, who is Hispanic, true "Latin rhythm." The kid is pretty amazing on the dance floor.

"Dancing is a good way to get girls."

"But I know the trick."

"What trick?"

"You lie her backwards over your leg and you hold onto her head up in her hair and then lean down and kiss her on the mouth. The girls love it."

"You mean like dipping a woman in a tango?"

"Yeah. Dipping. It's all in the dip, Mom. That's how you get girls."

"Glad you're honing your technique at age four."

With that, he walked off and for the millionth time, I thought, Man, am I in trouble with this kid.

Wow, I'm impressed. He does know how to get girls.

I have visions of him performing on Dancing With The Stars.

Natasha Fondren said...

Yeah, what Melanie said! And another point in the "rock star" column.

Robin said...

"My sexy lovely"? Hahahaha!

Cheryl Kauffman said...

Yes, you are in trouble. You better plan on chaperoning the student dances.

Man, you are sooooooooo in trouble with this boy. LOL

Erica Orloff said...

He has a gift for the ladies.

Erica Orloff said...

I see a tango in his future.


Erica Orloff said...

That column keeps looking stronger.

Erica Orloff said...

He has stopped calling me "mom" most days.

I'm Sexy Lovely.

Erica Orloff said...

I'm picturing Grease with the chapterone instituting the two feet between the dancers rule.

Erica Orloff said...

That's the consensus. LOL!

Nadine said...

LOL - He is definitely a charmer! Sexy lovely. I like it!

for some reason I kept wondering if he was planning on wearing clothes when he danced.

My son stopped calling me Mom at about that age and started calling me by my name. I thought he would grow out of it. He's 19 in a couple of days and I'm still waiting.
Interesting that Demon Baby is working out the techniques with girls even before the hormones kick in - quite cerebral. Imagine once the hormones join the mix.
