Today Julia comes home from kindergarten and says "Emily said Blaine's brother had sex with a girl."

Yikes! Was I talking about sex in kindergarten? Or first or second or third grade? No!!! I told Julia to tell Emily (Emily and Blaine are not the kids' real names) "I don't want to hear that" and to walk away the next time she starts talking about it.

On a good note, I went to Julia's ARD meeting today and learned that although she needs speech therapy, she's brilliant. But I knew that.

    Yikes is right! Only a writer would use such creative names when "changing them to protect the innocent" !!

    Last year a friend overheard her 6 year old daughter tell a neighbor friend a story about the prince and the princness who lived in the castle and got married.
    "Did they have sex?" asked the way-to-young-to-know-about-such-things neighbor.
    My friend said her heart dropped and she was just about to interupt, when her daughter said "No they had Seven."

    Wish they didn't have to grow up so fast!
