A funny, brought to you by Lynn.

Last night, I was sitting, winding-down after our day, and Lynn came to me.  She had a pant less Ken doll and wanted me to put the pants on him.

Her desired favor also came with a warning:

“Don’t look down though mom, he’s naked, and it’s gross.”

I looked, first at her, to see if she was serious, which she was, completely, then I looked down, at the naked Ken doll in my lap.

Now we all know that Ken isn’t “graphically” naked, he has some molded-to-his-body plastic BVDs on.  I guess, to a girl, it is gross.

Her reaction was comical: “Ewww!!  Mom!  You looked…  that’s gross!”

“I have seen more in my day Lynn.”

“Ewww!!  You’ve seen a naked boy mom?!”

“At least three times that anyone can prove.”

I know of some people who lay it ALL out for their kids as soon as they turn 8.  I think if we did that for/to Lynn, she would go into shock.

I think there is a time and place for everything to be explained to our kids..and I think that comes when the kids are ready! my kids, not ready yet. S thinks it's gross whenever we kiss. I guess having two brothers has killed the curiosity out of S though..although when we first brought L home, she told me that "it looks like a rain drop" and I just nodded my head, changed his diaper and we went on with our day! :)

That is too funny! With everything kids learn at school, I am glad she still thinks it is yucky!
