private property.

although malia & i talk about things, i bought this book for her:


as the mom of a soon-to-be ten year old, i was a little reluctant to purchase it.  i mean, when i picked up the book to look through it, the pages fell open to the section on how to insert a tampon.  i'm not ready for stuff like that.  i know my daughter isn't either.

but,

she is growing.  she is changing.  she has questions.  she will have more questions.

puberty is an awkward time.  so, maybe a book will make things easier...for the both of us.

maybe.

last weekend, as she was reading the book, she asked:

mom, why is it called a pub-ick area?  don't they mean public?
{she said pub-ick, not pew-bick}

oh.my.word.

my answer?

because it's most certainly NOT a public area.  no, no.  as a matter of fact, it's private property.




am i really ready for this?  am i?
i'm pretty sure six more gray hairs just sprouted on my head.

haha Well since Amanda is 15, I've been there, done that. You're in for a real treat :D Abbey used to say pub-ick too and it was sooo funny. Good luck!

Dear God.  I'll never have to deal with the tampon-insertion-issue but the whole "wake up erection" question is already being asked. He's 5. But he just says "it's big and tickles" LORD! Talk about gray hair!
