Save a Horse, Ride a Cal-Boy…

I am only writing about what happened tonight because I don’t ever want to forget it. I know that many of you may sit in judgement because of what I am about to write, I am OK with that.

I have always been very open sexually with my children. From a young age, if they had a question about something sexually, I made it a point to answer their question directly and not give them a vague answer(I was gonna say beat around the bush, but then I realized that sounded so wrong).

When they were younger, they would kinda blush and giggle, but it was obvious that their question was getting answered.

Now that they are pre-teens and teenagers, I have to say our disscussions have become much more open and honest, which leads to great talks, and really funny ones, like the one we had tonight.

So, a popular artist named Lady Gaga has a new song called “Love Game” out. The video is here if you want to hear it.

The very first part of the video goes like this:

Lets have some fun

This beat is sick

I want to take a ride on your disco stick

So we are on the way to church of all places, and we are discussing this song, and more specifically what the term “disco stick” actually is.

My 11 year old son pipes up from the back seat and asks “Do girls actually ride on boys?”

I respond honestly, “Yes honey, that is what she is talking about in this song, about a girl being on top riding the boy’s penis”

My son, without any shame yells at the top of his lungs:


We all started laughing so hard. It was priceless and something I never want to forget.


Kids say the funniest things…

Mr. Athletic has a girlfriend, Little Miss Spelling Bee. She got her nickname because she won her schools Spelling bee. She has long, flowing blonde hair and a cute button nose. She is adorable.

At 10, having a girlfriend means that you can talk to that girl without anyone making fun of you.

We have been teasing Mr. Athletic for a while about kissing Little Miss Spelling Bee. He has only replied that he is only old enough to hold her hand.

Last night at the dinner table I was teasing him again. I asked if he has held her hand yet.

His reply?

I don’t have time for that mom!

I didn’t realize men started so young with that excuse!
