When it comes to my Children, I’m a prude! How and when did this happen? Anyone who knows me, knows, I’m far from being a prude. Heavens, ask me anything concerning sex, does size really matter, what do I think is a turn on? etc etc I’d answer and discuss it with you, here or in real life, and not be embarassed or uncomfortable. If I don’t know something, or want to know, I ask, much to the chagrin of some of Male friends. I have no problems discussing sex with my Children, I’ve always tried to keep things age appropriate and not use cute nicknames. They know I’m comfortable talking with them about anything, and often do, TV and Movies give me lots of opportunities.
So, when did I become a prude concerning my Children, and other Children, and Teens? I guess the day I became a Mom, but, it’s not until they start growing up that you realize it. Gone are the R rated movie rentals, gone is anything that could be even close to porn, (My boys learned this the hard way) as if I wouldn’t look under the matresses, sheesh.
I guess I’m feeling a little guilty, my second oldest son is now 18, and about 2 weeks ago he got a call from a business that wanted to hire him. He wasn’t home, and I wrote the info down, and then, maybe subconsciously, or maybe on purpose, forgot about it. It’s not a business that I would want him working at, although I realize he’s 18 now and makes his own choices, hey, I’m still a Mom.
So, this morning I was cleaning… ok, trying, to clean up this computer table, and I found the info. My first thoughts, it’s been 2 weeks, throw it away, he has a good job. I felt guilty, a little… ok for about 5 seconds, because I know that not only would he love cooking there, but any 18 year old boy(any male any age actually) would probably kill or at least pledge and arm or leg to work there. Did I throw it away, yep! I’m a protective Mom first, I’ll deal with the guilt.
This post is my way of seeking absolution, LOL, I confess, feel bad, but, a Mom’s gotta do what a Mom’s gotta do.
Oh, I’m NOT gonna post the name of the business, the Males in my life, and online that know me would rise up in revolt, and either stone or tar and feather me! I’m not that stupid! Ahhh the fun never ends! BIG HUGSSS, Steph
