Well…I had THE talk with my 12-year-old daughter. Not the only talk, we’ve been talking for years about our horses and dogs having babies. Animal Planet is another good source for conversation. So today wasn’t the only time THE subject has been broached, but this time was more detailed…more information….
It all went well. She wrinkled up her nose and said, “That sounds weird.” I said, “Yeah.” Trying to remember what it was like to hear those details when I was young. I assured her it would be good and beautiful when she was married, but it is not in God’s plan outside of marriage.
I told her that if she had any questions, she could always come to me and ask me.
She only had one question:
“Was it weird when YOU did it?”
“….uhhh….well….ummm…. Whew. Would you like a drink?”
We will need to have more talks. At a later date. I really wasn’t as prepared as I thought I was for questions.
