Semantics and a Six Year Old

Yesterday dd was telling her brother about a compliment a friend of hers, paid to him.

Friend said: "Your little brother is cute! And he's even more cute when he's talking!" (maybe the cute when talking has to do with this):


The boy replied fiercely: "I AM NOT CUTE!! CUTE IS FOR BABIES!! I AM HANDSOME!!"

He was quite worked up over the "insult" paid to him.
