How Kids Identify Adults

So my ex-coworker and friend David is coming over tonight. My son has met him before, and so I was trying to tell him that David was coming over. Here’s how that conversation went. I was a little surprised.

Me: Hey Jonathan, David is coming over tonight.

Jonathan: Who?

Me: David. He used to work with Daddy.

Jonathan: [Puzzled look, cocks his head to the side a little]

Me: He came here before.

Jonathan: No.

Me: He’s the guy you said was "cool" the other day.

Jonathan: What shirt is he wearing?

At that point I just had to walk away, because I wasn’t too sure how to respond :)

I feel less cool now...
