Tonight while helping me make dinner, Maxi asked me if I'd like to hear him speak a different language?

A different language? I asked, thinking he was referring to his French classes.

Yes, Mommy. I can speak "Girl" now.

Girl?!

Yup.

Then he went into this very funny monologue sounding rather like a Valley Girl, complete with hand gestures.... "Oh, my life is o-ver! I broke a nail!" And "Do you like my new purse? See the way it matches my eyes?"

He had me cracking up. Then he told me he is going to give lessons to the other boys at school because "we men need to know these things!"

I was a little startled by all of this, truth to tell, because I have never modelled those kinds of sentiments to him, though he insists I do. Honestly, I don't recall ever wailing over a broken nail though I have kept my hands nice and nicely manicured since I was 15.

So I told him he was using a type of "Girl-speak" I don't know and he just laughed, unconvinced.

Fascinating to learn from my son that I speak a language I never heard of before!

So now i want to know: do y'all speak Girl and I just haven't noticed? lol

We were given two hands to hold, two eyes to see, two ears to listen & two legs to walk. But why were we given only one heart?
The other heart was given to another for us to find.

When my attendant was here a while ago, Maxi demonstrated his ability to speak Girl to her. She was laughing so hard because he is so funny.

Then he added explanations. "When she says 'I broke my nail oh no, my life is over!' she really means 'Is he going to still like me now?'" THAT'S why it is important for us men to know what Girls really mean when they are talking!

lol

Last year it was funny enough when he noticed the girls outside practicing to walk with a wiggle. He asked "WHY are they doing that, Mommy?" he thought it was silly. Silly enough to imitate in the kitchen for me.

Hearing Maxi's take on the female world is adorable.
