THE talk  Monday, June 02, 2008

RJ's little sister, Kimberly, came and started talking to me about female stuff today. She is 10 and has started getting some boobs (shes in a 34 A) and was asking me some questions about her boobs and bras. Well, somewhere in that she told me she hasnt started her period yet and then we got into a talk about that. She asked me some questions about what all would happen, so I pulled up some stuff on the internet for her and she watched a little video and I told her any questions she had for me she could ask me and that she would learn even more during school in health classes.

When the video started talking about the fertilized egg she wanted to know why women have eggs and how they get fertilized. I didnt want to tell her too much so all I said was that a man's sperm had to meet the egg and that she would learn how that happened very soon but I didnt think I needed to be the one to tell her. I told her women have periods because the blood is there to protect a baby and if there is no baby that your body gets rid of the fluid, and I told her to get a baby you have to have a fertilized egg. I used myself as an example tellign her that I dont have a period because the baby need all that fluid and stuff to keep him safe. She seemed to understand and gave me a hug and said she was glad she had someone she could talk to about all this stuff cause she sometimes didnt feel like she could talk to her parents.

I am so glad she feels comfertable with me because I would rather her come to me and get good advice then to eaily be peer pressured into doing somethign she might regret later. Heres a pic of her. Isnt she adorable?
