Since Alexander has been going to his babysitter's house, he comes home smelling like the Portuguese cuisine she cooks daily. If anyone knows Portuguese food, you know that they use a lot of spices, thus creating some strong (but usually delicious) odors.
Maggie was giving Alexander a kiss and stated "He smells Chinese!"
She meant that he smelled like chinese food....and he did.
Then this morning, she said while hopping off to school..."I'm going to tell all my teachers that Xander smells Chinese!" I yelled after her "No, don't say that!!", knowing they would not understand the context, and think I was raising a racist little girl.
I hope she heard me, but I wouldn't be surprised if I get a phone call or note sent home later. Oh, my poor politically-incorrect daughter!
