why are they hanging from the truck?
the driver thinks it's funny.
why is it funny?
i'm not sure.
next day from school spange and i get a note saying spangelet's been drawing testicles and showing them to her friends. and telling them about testicles. and making testicles at home and taping them to the fridge and her room window. and then we have to sit down and explain that testicles are part of the private area that is not to be joked about by a five-year-old. and all of a sudden, because we had to be honest, we've driven it back to dirty and wrong from a different perspective.
My limited experience has been that if you don't make a big deal out of it, the kid wouldn't either. I remember seeing the Discovery channel at like 7 and then asking my mom about sex. She told me and I went about my business. I wasn't drawing anatomy at school for weeks on end or anything. Its the human body for crying out loud! What is this nation coming to??? This doesn't seem at all outlandish to you?
And btw, my explanation would just get technical until their eyes glazed over...
