Do you ever have a weekend where the entertainment is provided for you free of charge? That was how my weekend went.
D has a unique personality. He loves to tell jokes and has been making up some on his own. He also has the memory of an elephant and remembers things from when he was 3 years old. At odd times D will bring up something that we did years ago and I am amazed at how much he remembers it.
This weekend Funny Girl came over to put together my book case (I put together my bathroom shelf) because I am not the most talented person when it comes to putting things together. She was sitting on the living room floor putting it together. We were watching something on TV (which D wasn't even watching) and the girl on there had been raped and was moaning. D turns to me and asks "Mom, is that lady on TV in heat?" Earlier this year our cat, Ashen was in heat having to explain that to D was an experience that I don't want to repeat any time soon.
In the world of always uncomfortable conversations he then wanted to know what being raped was. I used my always trusty excuse "I will tell you when you are 10." I don't want him to become jaded too soon.
On a lighter note, D has been writing his own jokes lately. Interspersed with the usual kid jokes comes one I have never heard before. Once in a while they are pretty good, especially for an 8 year old. This is the newest one.
D: Mom, What's the opposite of a summersault?
Me: Uhhhhh a Spring roll?
D: *Rolling his eyes* No Mom, a summer pepper.
Good times, Good times.
