H is for hot

H is for Hot.

We have been teaching Mini Me to blow on her food to cool it off. She's gotten really good at it. We say, "Be careful, it's hot!" and she blows on it. Perfect at dinner time, really funny when you use the word hot to mean something other than food. Let me explain.

We put up the Christmas tree a couple of days ago, and Mini Me hasn't really bothered it too much. She likes to talk about it, asks me to turn the lights on, and points out the snowman, penguin, santa, doggie, etc. on the tree. Today, she decided she wanted to touch the lights because if you put your hand over it, your skin glows red (she does this all the time with the flashlight).

So, she was touching the lights and to discourage her, I said "No-no, we don't touch the lights because they are hot" (they aren't, but I couldn't really think of a good way to explain being electrocuted to a 21 month old, so "hot" had to cover it)

So, what does Mini Me do?

She blows on them. Then said, "All set" and proceeded to touch them!

Here are some pictures of Mini Me helping to decorate for Christmas!
