Sometimes I laugh at the wrong time.

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

Now that the two youngest go to public school, they learn some things
that we'd rather they didn't.

Such is life, I guess.

We talk it through with them, explain why certain things aren't appropriate.

Lindsey learned something the other day.

"Mom, there is a really gross girl that says gross things in my class,"
she says, entirely seriously.

"What does she say?"

"She says, '{insert any name} went to China with a 
dirty vagina.'" 

(Can I write that on my blog?)

I tried not to, but I totally laughed.  

What was I supposed to do?

"Yes, Lindsey, that is bathroom talk."
(My attempt to bring it back to proper Mom-standards.)


  1. HA! Yes the joys of public school. I can STILL remember in 4th grade riding in the car with my mother and telling her the kids (boys) on the playground kept saying a word I didn't understand.

    "What was the word Lauren?"

    "They kept talking about pussy. What's that?"

    Yikes. That was then. I can only imagine now-a-days.

    ( I hope I didn't just get too dirty for the blog world, woops )

  2. that is a pretty good one, you have to admit. hahaha good luck!!!

  3. Haha! Kids are using "vagina" these days? How proper of them!

  4. Hahaha!

    Sometimes when my friends kids are being explained something or being disciplined I have to turn my face away because I am laughing. It's just so cute sometimes what kids say even when it's wrong!

  5. p.s. I think it's okay to say vagina on your blog. haha

  6. Whoa, what? How do 7 year olds know that word? And how to use it in such a gross/clever way?

  7. 1. I'm totally grossed out by whatever it is she's holding in that picture.

    2. I can only imagine what it's going to be like when Syd is 'school age' . . .

  8. it is a fish. i found it an appropriate picture to post with the story.

    annnd i just got even grosser.

    also, yes, kids are totally proper with their anatomy talk these days. no vajayjay talk in 2010. it's all about its rightful name.

  9. Oh dear lord. I would have laughed too.


talk to me.
