The talk

So the other day Arianna and I were snipping beans at the table and it was just the 2 of us. I had noticed some "changes" lately in her so I thought it would be a good time to have "the talk" with her.

So I mentioned that I had noticed some changes going on with her body and she says to me:
"I've noticed that too mom!" and then she asked me what they were for.
I explained that when she got older and married and had a baby that she would feed the baby with them.
Her response:
"So I'll be like a cow!"

It actually went very well, it wasn't awkward and she was very receptive. So we have the changes in our bodies and monthly issues done with.
Phew- 1 down (well partly- I didn't go into how the babies get in there yet) 1 to go!

ROFL, Mooooowwwwww, have fun with the next subject. I had to explain to my oldest daughter, but the next two sort of told me about it in all their innocense.

I bookmarked your blog a week or two ago whenever I saw that you were at least interested in trying to do Angela @ Refresh My Soul's 'grace' Bible study. (Right now, I can't remember if you were one of the ones who said she wouldn't have time but wishes she did.) Anyway, I like to know how people come to my blog, so that's why I'm doing all of this 'rambling.' :)

How old is Arianna? I have two girls ages 8 and 6. I keep thinking I need (and want) to have the "talk" with my 8 year old, but it hasn't been the 'right' time... yet. So, thank you for sharing this with us. (My daughter already knows about breastfeeding but not about having a period.)
