So last night me and the boys wanted a bit of TV time. Because we have a DVR my kids think I can just play any show at anytime. I offered Dirty Jobs, they countered with Infested (which comes on tonight so I didn't have any taped yet). We settled on Pimp My Ride.
First of all Pimp My Ride sounds like a great show to watch with boys who love cars, but it's not really kid appropriate. I should have gotten a clue from the name.
Or from this question:
Stephen: Mommy, what's pimp mean?
So it goes like this:
Me: Well in this case it means to fix up a car, but more than just make it nice, add all sorts of extras onto it.
S: OK... What does it mean in another case.
Me: Well... It's an adult thing, kids don't need to know
S: *HATES THAT ANSWER* Mommy tell me! I can take it.
S: *thinks for a bit* Mommy I wanna see your pimp! *trying the new word out without knowing what it means*
Me: Nope, doesn't work in that sentence *because I'm stupid and am leading this nonsense on*
S: Ok... Mommy I wanna pimp you!
Me: FINE! A pimp is a job that adults can have, but it's not a good job, it's an illegal job where a person does bad things. These people like to wear silly fancy clothes and drive silly fancy cars, hence a show about fixing up cars and adding silly stuff is called Pimp My Ride.
S: Oh, ok. You could have just told me that.
Me: *think I dodged a bullet AND had a funny conversation*
S: I like fancy silly things... I'm gonna be a pimp when I grow up.
Me: *parenting fail*
