#UgBlogWeek #Day 3
Let’s talk about sex baby…Should I just blurt it out like that? I wonder so many times as I try to focus on the road during those trips to or fro the many places we drive to. Perhaps I should take a more subtle route…hmmm which words will I use… I wonder. My friend X used this method…my friend Y advised that it is best to use that other method because her friend W tried it and it worked? “Why are you taking so long? You should have done it by now? Eeee but Flora you are quite bold, out with it already…” my friend and workmates keep taunting me. Oh gosh! the thought of how and when I will finally do it just gives me the creeps.
When will I get the guts to talk to my 11 –year-old about sex? Every single day I construct all sorts of scenarios in my head. Someone suggested buying a book and letting her read it then bringing up the conversation would be a walk in the park. But then is that the best way to do sex education… Another friend volunteered to hold a senga session for children her age and talk about the topic, but I have read and heard countless advice about a parent being the best route for children to learn about sex. But nobody told me about sex growing up. Between biology lessons, Mills and Boons and Jackie Collins, I discovered things. But in today’s fast growing society there is simply no time for that path. I must give that talk soon soon soonest.
Just the other day, as I was going through homework and saw a reproductive system, I thought that was the perfect entry point. But for the life of me, it has been 2 weeks and I still haven’t been able to do it. I keep “tying X” that Aunt Rose doesn’t come before we have our sex education session.
For the life of me, what is wrong with me. We are good friends. I have a feeling the fact that she was an only child for eight years has made me always look at her as my baby. How will I start telling my baby about sex. For the life of me, what am I going to do? There is no way round this, I need to have this sex talk, I know I should give sex education. But so far I’m hopeless and I don’t like myself very much for this. Today I will put a timeline. By the end of the year, I should have had the talk, someone hold my hand because it has to happen…baby…we got to talk about sex NOW!
