Gotta say that the result of it is making me laugh. Like the other night when a tampon commercial came on. My son announced to his friends on Xbox that he’s stuck watching a commercial about those “things” a girl uses when she gets her period. Or the time he broke into uncontrollable laughter when my dad announced that the nipple on my nephew’s bottle was broken. And completely omit the word ball especially in the plural form. That’s guaranteed hysterics.
When he came home from seeing THE movie, I asked him if he had any questions from it.
“Yes, but I want to ask Dad them”.
The next morning, after my husband left for work, my son came to me with a burning question he had thought of during the night.
“How will I know if I had a wet dream? Does semen look different than pee?”
With the straightest of faces and without making of big deal of it, I explained that semen is very white.
And off he went.
He’s fishing for something though and I’m wondering what it is he wants to know. He saw the tampon commercial a few days ago. Today in the car he said to me that he’s glad he’s not a girl because he’d hate to have to get his period and deal with all those period things.
It’s slightly ironic to me that while he’s just becoming aware of what a monthly cycle is all about……my own cycle has just started getting all strange and peri-menopausal.
