OK, so today, we're driving back from a friend's house - we hadn't even intended to go there, as I was not even showered and was, honestly, still in my pajamas although I had thrown on a fleece and shoes. We're listening to Crystal Visions in the car, and "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" comes on. Anna and I had been listening to that song in the car the other day and she was all "why is he dragging her heart around?? Yuck!!" I proceeded to explain to her that it wasn't a REAL heart, she was telling him to be nicer to her and not treat her mean. I mean, really, how do you explain the concept of Sid & Nancy kind of love to a 5-year old?
Well, today, when it came on, she instantly recognized it and started singing along to it a little bit. Since it is in my job description as a parent to tease my daughter, I asked her if she was going to drag a heart around - and she said "No! Yuck!!" I said to her, "What do you think would happen if you drug a real heart around? Do you think you'd get bloody?" Heidi's begging me to stop at this point because SHE'S grossing out at the thought of it, but Anna matter-of-factly replies to me, "Well, you could tie it to a rope and then drag it around. Then you wouldn't get blood on your hands."
That's my girl.
