I’m Sexy and I Know It!

I’M SEXY AND I KNOW IT! No, I am not talking about myself here.  This little ditty is what my 4 year old is singing out loud in public.  It’s also combined with a very attitude-ish type hip wiggle.  All to this song by LMFAO.  I am left baffled at how she knows this song?  I […]
