No one can ever say I was not open and frank with my children about words they have heard on the play ground. I have been told by one of my son's friends that I lap book curse words with them. Where did he get that from oh that's right the F word.
Zach came home with the F word and asked me what it meant. So being who I am I went to the Internet found a 30 page dissertation on wikipida on the word, printed it and started reading it with Zach. About 5 pages in Zach stopped me and said " Mom, if I promise to never say that word, can we stop now?" If I hear that word from his mouth we will start at the beginning of that paper again.
The other day we went to the doctor for his check up and for a physical to be done so he can go to boy scout camp.
I started asking him the questions on the questionnaire:
Any changes in your life?
Not that I want to tell them.
Have we talked about puberty?
(Rolling his eyes with a little fear in them.) Mom, if I say yes will you not go into detail about that stuff? (guess I'm a little too open, oh and when he came home with the word sex I did get his father to run from the room bright red. What? I just opened the anatomy books and we did a little unit study.)
Okay then, Do I limit your screen time?
Just say yes. It's not like I don't go outside. Look at my skin.
Yeah that boy is all mine.
