I know I can make it through.

The Boy and Girl Child? Have some concerns.

Apparently? There are rumors circulating that there is drug and gang activity in the middle school. They might be offered drugs! Or nicotine! Or even get shanked while trying to get into their locker WHICH THEY WILL BE UNABLE TO REMEMBER THE COMBINATION FOR NO MATTER HOW HARD THEY TRY!


So we were talking about what to do if they are offered drugs (say "No thanks"), alcohol (say "No thanks") or cigarettes (see answer for drugs and alcohol). Then I asked The Girl, "What would you say if some boy tries to get you to have sex with him?"



"Can I call someone a perv, mom?"

"Honey, you can say whatever you want if someone is pressuring you to do that. And if someone tries to force you, you can physically harm them. As much as you want. You can even LEAVE YOUR SHOE stuck in there, if you want to."

"I'll probably just kick them in the groin," she said, knowledgeably.

"Good plan."

"The groin," she informed me, "is a man's weakness."

"In more ways than one, honey!"

Jason laughed, but gave me a disapproving look. He's SO like that.

I just discovered your blog through Elizabeth at's blog. I love it! You totally crack me up!

Good luck to your kids in middle school. They seem like very smart kids who will do well. Before long, middle school will be old hat for them. :)

This. THIS is why I am NOT looking forward to Morgan being in school. Sex! Drugs! Drinking! WTF?!

However, I will be sure to inform her she CAN cause physical harm if need be.

When my 6th grader told me there was "crack all over the place" at his school, I nearly died. But we had that same talk, but not about the pervs. I love that.
