"What's herpes Mom and why doesn't she want to share?"
"Ewww, COOL!" marvels Daniel. "Look at his guts squishing out!" cries Nicholas. "I can see his blood." observes Shane. "That's not blood" corrects Nicholas, "That's bug juice" he says matter of factly. "Oh Gross." replies Shane. "Look! He's still moving! Smash him again Dad!" shouts Daniel. " I wanna try - give me the broom" grunts Shane. That poor horse fly never even had a chance with my guys out there. As I looked down at him I could hear little Susan's tiny voice in my head saying ... "awww, poor yiddow fewwa."
There is one area though that both our boys and girls share similar views on and that's television commercials. Over summer vacation they have been really noticing how "inner po piate" (innapropriate) alot of them are. I am not talking about the Charmin bathroom tissue ones that talk about "fewer pieces left behind" - this one makes the kids giggle and Shane moans "that's just so wrong." I am talking about the ones that are shown at ALL hours of the day and early evening that make my husband and I squirm and share that "I can't believe they just showed that on daytime TV" glances over top of our kiddling's heads. I want to send a letter to the various television commercial producers but wouldn't know where to send it .... just to remind them that "my innocent children are watching - please save your trash for late night TV - if you really have to advertise it!"
