>I am writing this as a guest post on Darcel’s blog because I am too
embarrassed to write it on my own. Here it is…
A conversation with my son:
Ezra, age 4: “Sometimes I like you, Mommy, and sometimes I don’t like you.”
Me, age 33: “Why don’t you like me sometimes? I’m awesome.”
Ezra: “I just don’t like you when you have your period because I don’t
like looking at blood.”
Me: “Um, okay.”
So, that got me to thinking about how much I share with my children,
how much I expose them to.
I mean, at what age is it going to become awkward to have my son come
into the bathroom and see me changing my maxi pad? At what age will it
feel weird to have him see me naked? At age 4, it doesn’t. But, I
obviously can’t imagine him as a 12 year old seeing me naked or
watching me change my maxi pad.
At what age does that shift take place? Does it happen gradually, or
does it happen all at once?
I don’t know.
On a side note, here is a video of the type of thing I subject my
children to… the poor things:
