When I became a parent I decided that I needed to be truthful to my daughter and tell her everything that she wanted to know, no hiding stuff. (In an appropriate way, of course) I have kept true to my word. Sabi however is not so happy that I have. Let me explain...
Last Friday night, Sabi asked me where babies came from. Inside I thought "oh man! I don't want to do this!" On the outside however, I kept my composure and matter of factly told her all of the details. She was quiet and then said "You could have tweaked that a little bit for me mom....GROSSS!!! EWWW!!!! Did you have to tell me everything???" All I could do was laugh!
Yesterday, she overheard me talking to my mom about my scheduled mammogram. Later, in private, she asked me what a mammogram was. Again, I told her. She asked "Do you have to, um, take off your, um clothes to do that???" I told her yes. She again said "EWW!" Then she went on to say that being a grown up is gross!
So much for honesty! :-)
