Yes, I know, it's been another week since my last post, but with a few different things going on, and not much grabbing my attention, there wasn't much to post on, and the internet is full enough of boring, mindless, crap that I thought I wouldn't pollute your minds further.
So what has been going on in Molloy world? Well, this weekend I attempted to strip a radiator which wasn't easy. It's still not complete, even after using a whole tin of paint stripper, and will be doing more of it tonight. However, it was one of those jobs that I can just get my head down and get on with it - stereo on (a combination of Public Enemy, Silverchair and The Kinks), a cup of tea and just crack on with it.
And number one son's sexual education has started to move along (!). I know, shocking sentence, right?? But this weekend we had conversations on "what boobs are for", what happens when "a man puts his thing in a woman" (he asked - "do they just lie there and chat or is there hubba-bubba?") I have no idea what hubba-bubba meant - I mean, I only know it as the bubble gum! - but anyway... "whats the 'liquid' called (yes, we had to say the word 'sperm' to our son) and why do some condoms have a strawberry flavour. (He actually worked this one out for himself).
Pity my poor better half - she was the one who actually fielded these questions. Jake seems a bit too shy to talk about these things around me. The strawberry condom one was a good one... the shock of realization that someone would want to "suck it like a lollipop" (his words!) seemed to boggle his mind.
But this did get me thinking about blow jobs. Just kiddin.
This did get me thinking about how Jake's sexual education will develop - I mean, he does a class in school about health and personal stuff, but I think it's important he is comfortable talking to my better half or myself about this sort of thing. Education will stop things like that 13 year old boy becoming a father... (13?! I mean come on, GREAT parenting skills by his parents!).
So how long is it gonna be before I start getting questions on technique and things like that?! *shudder*.
So an eye opening weekend for some... and a slightly uncomfortable one for others!
