Visiting my parents. Hey! You get to hear my sucky parenting moment of the day!
On the ride from the airport to the house, Soleil suddenly asks "Mom? How does a women get pregnant?" Great… So I told her that its part of the dad and part of the mom and she interrupts with "but HOW does it get together?" Um, Shit. okay. Well, you know when you love someone, they like to hug and snuggle and men and women can hug really close and fit together like a puzzle. And that’s something that grownups do.
IF my parents were not there, I would have said "well, you know that you are different from boys." ….gotten her to fill in the vulva and penis part. Then explain that those fit together like a puzzle. And then the grownup thing, that this is not a kid thing. Man, I blew it I could not say penis in front of my parents. How fricken sad.
This parenting thing is tough.
On the plus side, Dr. Jay is in Scotland at a meeting and I now have a blackmail photo of him in a kilt!
