Why I'm Glad My Kids Try Out Their Jokes On Me First

I grabbed a precious hour of sewing time today that was soon invaded by my daughter. She came bouncing into my craft room with a new joke to tell me.

“Hey Mom,” my 11 year old daughter said. “I’ve got a new joke! What’s long and hard and has semen in it.”

And my smile froze as my eyes got big.

And with all of my self control I asked, “(gulp) What honey?”

“A coffin! Get it? It’s long and hard and has dead guys who go fishing in the sea in it.”

“Uhh...where did you hear that one?” I said with a smile plastered on my face.

“I don’t remember but isn’t it funny?”

My first thought was, “I love that she is so completely innocent.”

The words out of my mouth were…”Remember that talk we had about where babies come from….?”

Oh my! That is definitely a good thing for YOU to hear and not someone else!

It reminds me of the time my little brother and sister asked me what a cond*m was... and at CHURCH no less. Apparently the church bulletin had an article in it about the distribution of them in schools... ACK!

I simply cannot believe it. Just whatever you do...don't tell me that Bethy told her or something. That'd be something that would happen to me. :)
