So #2 says to me, “Yeah, I heard someone say something today about a MILF. What does that stand for, Mom?”
Me: *silent sigh inward* It’s inappropriate. It’s not something I want you saying, Honey.
#1: But what does it mean, like generally?
Me: It’s a term that refers to when you find someone’s mom attractive.
#2: OK, that makes sense then. I figured the ‘M’ had something to do with mom.
Me: Yeah, it stands for “mother I’d like. . .” and I’m not telling you the rest. It’s inappropriate for kids your ages.
#2: Yeah, that is what I thought.
#1: I bet the ‘F’ stands for “franchise.”
Me: Hysterical, hysterical laughter. Go to bed, my loves.
And I swear on every single thing I hold dear that this is EXACTLY how this exchange went just now. I am KILLING this parenting gig, y’all! Franchise??! Couldn’t make this up if I tried.
