New and different ways to horrify my child....

My little girl is quiet and fairly shy, unlike her "in your face" momma...

She's pretty quiet & reserved like her daddy.  She embarrasses easily & will always be more apt to sit back and watch rather than participate.

She's 9, and starting to develop - which alone is horrifying her.

While on the phone with a family member, my husband was discussing the issue at hand & a specific female related health issue.  Of course, my little darling was eavesdropping and heard the word uterus.  A little bit later, she asked, "Mommy, what's a uterus again?"  So in my very mature way, I explained that it's a female part of the body - it's where the babies live before they're born.  I then said, you have a uterus.

Dun, dun, dun....  Her jaw dropped & she got a horrified look on her face.  "I HAVE A UTERUS?"  It wasn't bad enough that she is changing and not liking it, but the realization of actually having a body part that holds a baby was enough to set her into orbit.

Now to have a little fun....  Guess what, honey - you also have ovaries!  Ovaries hold the EGGS that help to make the babies...  ha ha....  She held her hands over her ears - la la la la la - I can't hear you...

I actually think it's incredibly cute.  I had / have no intention of going any further on how the babies actually get into the uterus - that's totally a conversation for when she's 27 or 28 :)

I'm keeping my baby girl as innocent as I can for as long as possible.

In the meantime, I've got some fodder for my own personal entertainment when she starts acting, um - girlie...
