Sam: "Oh, Mommy, you are so hot."
Daddy Steve: [snort] "You shouldn't say that Mommy is hot."
Sam: "But she IS hot."
Daddy Steve: [uncomfortable laugh] "That might be true, but only daddies should tell mommies that they're hot."
Sam: [whispering to me] "You ARE hot, though, Mommy. Especially your arm. Your arm is SO HOT."
Daddy Steve: "Why don't you just tell Mommy that she's beautiful?"
Sam: [sigh] "But she's *hot.*"
