"Is it hot???"

“Is it hot???”

Those are 3 words I’ve heard at least a few times a week for the last 5+ years. Another form of those 3 words is the phrase “Are we there yet?”. They even made a movie about that one. I think you see my point. As simple as that question sounds and as simple as the answer is, those 3 words never seem to surprise me.

“Is it hot???”

Yes, we cooked it in the oven, not in the refrigerator. Remember the stove that you touched when you were 2? That means hot. It doesn’t matter how many times I can say “yes, it’s hot”, I get the question a couple more times before it settles into my daughter’s head that yes, indeed, it IS hot. I understand little kids are nervous about food being too hot. That’s not the point of this article. It’s those 3 words that I’ve come to expect and never really thought about it before. They’re always there…waiting to enter my ears.

“Is it hot???”

It’s funny how 3 words can make you realize that you really are a parent.
