and the month has passed. I am continually amazed by the speedy passage of time. A wink or two and I'm going to be 60! Okay well maybe not quite that quick - but sometimes it certainly feels that way. I'm blaming it on my kids :-)
So yesterday while we were in church, (we made it on time too - barely, but anything before the first song begins counts as making it on time) Syd was playing with her Ariel, Eric and two Polly Pockets (I know - toys at church but some days you pick your battles and yesterday's battles did not include fighting over 5 inch dolls) As I glanced behind me I noticed something - I noticed that Eric and Ariel were doing a lot of KISSING! Syd is 4 what does she know about kissing? NOTHING - that is what she should know about kissing! Anyway, after mass I asked her what Ariel and Eric were doing - she answered "Kissing". So I asked why they were kissing - well of course the answer was because "they're in looooooove" I mean why else would they have been kissing - it was all so clear to her. And then she piped up to add "they are married, mom". At least she recognizes that marriage is a good preliminary to the kissing stuff! But it made me think - when and how do we talk about this stuff - this grown-up kissing and etc. stuff? I am hoping to postpone the conversation until they are at least 12 years old but I'm thinking that may be too late. Shoot. I'm not ready for this - at least not this year!!! That darn Little Mermaid, I knew she was trouble!
Dancing show tonight!!!
