More Birds and Bees

Conversations that would prove too much some times...

I was chatting with Cooking Momster online and I told her that I just bought some stuff for baking. I got Bread Improver for making breads and buns, Corn Syrup for fondants and pliable cake decors, Ammoniam Bicarbonate (to make Bread Fritters) and lastly I told her I bought some Glycerin. She asked me what did I buy that for. I said even though they are part of the ingredients for baking, I use them for making homemade bubbles for the kids.

She thought that if kids' bubbles used such ingredients it must be bad to consume.. just like bread improver since we chatted about how rising agents are bad for consumption. Ya it's true. Then I told her Glycerin is also found in our makeup like lips stick and facial gels, creams and etc.

Oh the conversation moved on to that this product is suppose to make things easy to 'glide' and I joked about maybe it could be good for an activity like S*X.. it was funny for us when suddenly out of the blue, my girl Rae popped me a question from where she was sitting.

I didn't expect her to ask me this again! She had been reading that Pocket Scientist again! (Remember the Pocket Scientist book i bought and she asked those questions about the birds and the bees?)

She asked me in a loud voice...

RAE: "MUMMY... what is ver geen nia.... "
oh dear... I squint and kept quiet.. pretending not to hear....wahahahahahah

RAE: "MUMMY... what is VER GEEEN NIA..."
mummy cannot avoid this time... I corrected her.. I said VE JAI NA.

RAE: "What does it mean, mummy"
.... quiet mummy in low profile, typing frantically away on her facebook... "it means private part"

RAE: "oh you mean our buttock?"
me: " not your buttock. Vag**na means the front part where you pee. An*s is where you poop... Buttock is the whole round part of your backside"

Then quiet for a while.... Mummy continues to check facebook...

RAE: "MUMMY.. what is 'stiffer'"
Mummy blinks eyes.... then phone rings....wahhhh saved by the phone!!!


After I put down the phone, I thought, I better go hide the Pocket Scientist!

Chris (my son) got that Pocket Scientist too! There is another blue copy, right? Probably when he was 5 or so. One day, he said, "Mum, don't tell me that I was pulled out from there!" He was reading the process of childbirth!

Have a happy and healthy new year!

Hey Constance, that's a good book. I think it's perfectly fine to teach them the scientific name of our private parts and you did a great job on that explanation.

Happy new year Constance.
