Oscar, from a preschooler's perspective

Like many other people, on Sunday night we turned the TV on and watched the Academy Awards. I wasn't so entertained, but that's how it is. J doesn't understand what the Academy Awards are. As far as she's concerned, the only movie out there worth watching is the "Car Kids' Show" aka Cars 2.

Part way through the show, after a particular couple had been shown a few times this conversation happened:

J: Mommy, why is that sick lady on the TV?

Me: What sick lady?

J: The one on the TV.

Me: (looking at the screen and seeing some presenter who is a man and doesn't look sick) Which lady?

J: The one with the man who needs a bath.

Guess who J was referring to...she was pretty accurate in her description!
