And I liked it.

I don't listen to the radio with the children in the car. Not because I've suddenly decided to be a good, responsible mother or anything. Only because I really enjoy talking to them and can't do very many things at once.

They do get to listen to the radio in the Tae Kwon Do van on the way from the school to the studio. Sometimes they talk about songs they hear.

Like yesterday.

Boy Child, laughing: Mom? You know that song, "I kissed a girl?"?
Me: Yes.
Boy Child, still laughing: Mom! That guy singing it sounds just like a girl!

Oh dear.

Me: Um, honey? It IS a girl singing that.
Boy Child, not laughing: Oh. OH.

A few moments pass, in silence.

Boy Child: Does that mean she's a tri-sexual?
Me: No. Just bi. Bi means two.
Boy Child: Oh.

A few more moments pass, in silence.

Boy Child: Thanks for that information mom. It's very helpful. Bi means two and tri means three!
Me: I'm a mom, health class, AND a math lesson!

I hope Hell isn't horribly hot.I tend to sweat.

Sadly, in this world of ours, there are some things it's better they learn from their parents...

You are so quick - I love it.....well not loving that you had to explain to your son the whole bisexual thing but the conversation will really get a good laugh when he's older :)

I love it when you type out your conversations with boy and girl child, it reminds me that there is no question to hard for a parent. Because really? Honesty is the best. Plus I think it is awesome they want to ask you :)

Actually, I think simple acceptance of those different from us is one of the most important things a mom can teach. Answering questions like that in a calm and non-judgmental way is very important.

I think hell is still safe from you. ;)

Wow. Tri-sexual. Would that be man/woman/animal sex? Or man/woman/chocolate?

Can't figure it...
