Well. Here we go.
The letter came home last week about the Always Changing program being presented to Cam’s class this week.
At that point he knew how babies came out of the Mom.
After that convo, he knew how babies got in.
He’s worn deodorant for a year now (hockey makes him stinky). He’s has the odd pimple.
I asked if he knew what pads and tampons were. He said no. I didn’t really believe him.
I want him getting his information from Sean and I. Not from the playground.
He showed me the playground sign for sex (index finger going into opposite thumb and index finger circle). Said his friend told him that was “code for sex”
I asked if he knew what doing that meant. He said no. I didn’t believe him but didn’t push.
Tell me – am I naive to be totally shocked that a classmate talks about orgasms and makes “an orgasm noise” in class all the time?
(Remember, this is grade 5)
I asked Cam if he new what an orgasm was and he told me the other kid said it’s the noise a girl makes when she has sex.
I am feeling somewhat unprepared for new phase.
Is that even possible?
