Ok. So most of you have heard but I had to post this. Recently Katelynn and Madison spent the night at there cousins. This is how the evening proceeds after we pick them up...Keep in mind this is coming from our 7 1/2 year old sweet, innocent and naive baby girl.
So we're sitting as a family at a gourmet dinner at Wendy's after picking up the kids. We are catching up with them and asking how there time is over our delicious meal. They got to spend time with their cousins and with another boy of about 5.
Upon picking up the girls, Savanah let's Nana in on a little secret that she thinks "said boy" has a crush on Madison. At dinner we get the scoop on all the things they did with their cousins, etc. etc.
Then, out of Madison's little mouth comes matter of factly, "I know the difference between boys and girls." Complete silence from the parents and Nana as our minds are whirling on the inside and we're all thinking, "Did she just say what I think she did? What does that mean? Where did this come from? She's only 7 1/2. Oh my gosh!!!"
Madison continues, "Yeah, boys have a black spot on their stomachs that girls do not have."
Still complete silence from the parents. We're still completely whirling on the inside and panicking. Nana on the other hand is thinking back to Anah's little secret she filled her in on and wondering, "What happened? Could Madison have seen something she shouldn't have?"
Then Madison explains a little more. Now we find out she's referring to the puppies! Oh, the puppies! The new puppies at Papa and Grandma Donna's. Great!! This is going so much better now. Yeah! Boy puppies have a brown spot on their tummies. For someone who does not love dogs, I cannot tell you how thrilled I was to know she was talking about puppies!
So, our usually sweet, innocent 7 1/2 year old is still naive to the difference between boys and girls! We're just not ready for her to know all of this yet. She doesn't have a brother. She's got a small clue I'm sure but that's all she needs for now. We can cross this bridge a little later in life! I'm having a tough enough time starting to fill Katelynn in on the facts of life. Whew!
