rite of passage

A certain someone who lives here with us had a sex education class today. It made for spectacularly interesting dinner conversation that I don't think Mike has quite recovered from yet.

Did you know that penises could get bigger? Well did you? Also the words ball sack may have been uttered and not by me for a change. Oh my I am still chuckling, mostly over the look on Mike's face and how many times he rolled his eyes heavenward probably praying for the conversation to be over.

For the record it was declared incredibly awkward and something she didn't think needed to be discussed until high school.

*It should be noted that this is a topic that I have always been appropriately open with her about, but it's a whole other kettle of fish when you have a dozen eleven year old boys in the mix.

the hubby had to teach the next level of sex ed this year (grade 7). he made them all do a rap about sexulally transmitted infections. wait until that one comes home! ;)

Lol! That is pretty funny. I am so not looking forward to those conversations. I do think that they seperated us for our "talk"

Eve is in a 4/5 split, so she had to go to another class while the grade fives got the puberty talk. When she got back to her classroom, she asked one of the boys how it was and he said he wasn't going to be able to sleep that night.

Bibliomama said...

p.s. They taught them 'ball sack'? Really?

Julie - Can't wait haha

Betsy - Mine too is memory serves.

Bibliomama - I never thought to ask her if they were separated from the fours. I guess they were. Ballsack came up after the conversation veered towards the slang used for various body parts.
