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.
