  • you should ask your DH what he will say when he is asked the same Q.... you don't want to tell your child that you met at the Dairy Queen if your DH is going to tell him you were a stripper.

  • Nope, tell him you met Daddy at a club. Enough said. I am not against stripping at all, but your son really does not want to know the nitty gritty. Heck, you could even tell him your hubby thought you looked pretty when you danced at the club, haha.

  • I agree with Kitten. You could say you were out dancing at a "club" when you met. Just leave out the part about you being naked.

  • Just say a "club" or a place where people go to dance or something like that. That way, you're not lying, but you're not telling him truths that he's not ready for yet.

  • i would just say club too..maybe when he is old enough to understand and you and DH (god willing) still together then yes when he is older it would be alright. I to don't lie to my kids but there are somethings we protect them from till they are mature enough.

  • My dh was the bouncer at the club I worked at. Although I had worked with him not 6 months before at a nursing home. I will tell my kids the true about were I met him. My dd, who is 6, already knows that I was married once before and that I had a miscarriage about 3 months after her daddy and I started dating.

  • I agree... just say you met at a club or a bar.

    My aunt and uncle met at a co-ed strip club where they were both dancers... I am CERTAIN their kids won't know unless they ask in their 20s.
