Too Much Animal Planet

When Stomper began this sentence, it certainly went a different direction than I was expecting.

"Mom, want to know something funny about damsel flies when they're mating?"

Long pause.

"Sure, son."

"Their tails make a heart shape!"

I still don't know if he actually knows what mating is - the question certainly has not come up yet about human...mating...issues.... Not even when our baby Bundle was on her way. But I think we'd better cover the subject at some point. I don't know. Maybe it's better to leave it like it is for now!

And in other "alarming comment" news, Bitty drew a picture of herself complete with three little dots on her torso. She pointed them out thus; "This is my belly button and these are my nibblets. But they're too small to bite." Oh my. Just so you know, we've (meaning I) have been having problems with Bundle and her newly developed biting habits. The kids have been hearing me do some yelling. Ouch! Bundle thinks it's funny. She responds by making a similar 'ouch' sound and then doing it again.

Cool heart shape. I think it's awesome you are still nursing. I dried up after nine months with Tater. I don't know why for sure, but possibly too much going on and not enough time spent nursing him. Poor kid. He got nine months at least. He didn't do any biting because he literally had maybe one front tooth by then. My sympathies.

Oh I am laughing! Bundle and Curly have similar "interests" right now....

haha! Yes, we have been contemplating giving 'the talk' for quite a few months now ourselves. Ever since Joshua pinched a little girl's bottom at recess...oh my! I'm quite nervous. I don't feel ready for this!
