SweetCheeks And The Birds And The Bees

SweetCheeks older sister, Lulu,
has been given 
THE TALK
You know the one.
The one all parents look forward to
with dreadful anticipation.
Well,
Lulu is in 5th grade now.
Last year they got THE TALK
about becoming a woman.
Moms (or someone connected to the child)
were invited to be there for
THE TALK.
Lulu weathered that one pretty well.
This year
THE TALK was about reproduction
and involved a MOVIE.
Lulu was talking about it in hushed tones
in the car.
SweetCheeks heard just enough to 
know that 
THE TALK was something special
AND when she heard there was 
A MOVIE involved
her ears perked up.
Nana!
Yes, honey?
You know when I get THE TALK and movie?
Yes?
Well, when I get it I hope they have that
Theater-in-the round thing like they have
at Dizzney Wurld and that they
give  me 3D glasses.

Now, I don't know about you, but I
am pretty visual.
Let's just say I almost choked on my coffee.
Her next question?
Whut's so funny?

(In about 4 years she will know what's so funny)

oh, yes... and then there are the talks and movies when you get to high school health class. We hear about them from our grandson... I look like SweetCheeks when I think about it :)

Musings from Kim K. said...

We all need a good smile/laugh after this week. Thanks!

Melanie said...

Sweet and innocent!! Loved it!!

Tete said...

Oh, now that's funny. Sorry Lulu is growing so fast. The talk makes it sound better than it really is, but in the round with 3D...wonder if she thinks Donald Duck is starring in it. Now, there's an image for you.

I do think I am addicted to spray paint!!

LOVE IT...especially the part of it being in 3D!!

Jayme, The Coop Keeper said...

Ha ha ha ha! That is precious! I remember my sister's giving me the talk - I think I was about 11. My comment 'well as long as I never have to touch it!' ha ha! Darned kids, growing up way too fast!

Shirley said...

Good Morning Diana, A good chuckle for this cold morning right at freezing. You never know what they are going to tell you. I can't believe that my oldest grandson will be a freshman in high school this coming fall. The kids now grow up so fast. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

Susie said...

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Oh Diana, I can hardly wait till SweetCheeks gets The Talk. I'm sure she will have a quite a bit to say about that!

Cute. I remember when my oldest friends Grandchild came home about grade 6 and explained about the banana and the balloon she called it that was taught to the girls in her discusion without the boys with a nurse . She goes Yuks. I will never go with a boy..

My friend was shocked.

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

The second kid is never quite as innocent as the oldest are they? Oh well better they learn in the home I say.

Kelly said...

That is hilarious! She just keeps you in stitches, I bet. LOL! It's her sweet innocence that makes her so cute. My youngest son is in the 5th grade right now and will be learning about their changing bodies at school. They just sent home a permission slip for children to learn about puberty. Should be interesting to hear about what he learns when he comes home from that!

Stephanie said...

From the mouth of babes! Too funny :) Enjoy your weekend.

Hugs,
Stephanie

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Oh SC could come up with a mental visualization like that one for us.

Snort....

Connie said...

That reminds me of the old Art Linkletter Show, "Kids Say The Darnest Things, do you remember that? You just never know what may come out of an sweet child's mouth, LOL.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

Cheryl @ TFD said...

3D? Too cute! Well, the saying of it...not the visual. :) She is a cutie and so innocent. Don't you wish they could stay innocent a lot longer? Kids grow up too fast these days.
Have a wonderful day and weekend!

Japolina said...

I never get tired of sweet cheeks stories.

My husband was in charge of the talk. He came home after going out with my son. He said "well I told him where babies come from and while I was at it, I told him that santa claus, the tooth fairy and the easter bunny are all fake!" Talk about loss of innocence!

"Cottage By The Sea" said...

That is NOT a movie I would want to see in 3-D.

andy said...

Thanks for such a good news post and happy pictures I think after this week we all need some good news !

Patty Patterson said...

I think Sweet Cheeks might be in for a surprise! LOL That is just too funny!

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Diana, too funny and 3D. LOL.
Thank you for sharing this uplift for the day. I think we all needed it. From Boston to Texas.
Have a wonderful weekend. XO
Hugs, CM

NanaNor's said...

I can't believe she is old enough for this! When my girls were that age, we had a very nice book that described this in very modest and sweet terms-but it was still embarrassing for both of us. Considering both girls have five kids and one is pregnant, do you think I didn't teach enough-lol.
Hugs, Noreen

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

wow, that seems to be such a young age. But I guess children are "exposed" to soo much already through tv, that they kind of have to give the talk.

Dewena Callis said...

Times have changed and we have to face these things so much earlier now. Can you believe I was in the 8th grade before a girlfriend told a group of us girls at a slumber party the facts of life. My response was, "Not my mother and father!"

Lucille said...

Oh, my goodness, from the mouths of babes! Chuckle, chuckle!

pollydove said...

Oh my gosh, that's hilarious! That really is the DREADED talk, isn't it? The girls' pictures are darling!

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, SweetCheeks is too funny. Can you imagine hearing the talk and seeing the movie in 3D glasses? She must light up your life with some of the things she says.

Have a fun weekend, Diana.

Love,
~Sheri

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Diana, This is hilarious! Both sisters are cuties.
Hugs,
Sherry

PURA VIDA said...

precious and priceless...and pretty cute little photos to go with!

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Oh my...they are giving The Talk at a much younger age now! Honestly at any age it's a challenge. Certainly can't bury your head in the sand these days. :o)

Heaven's Walk said...

lolol! Hmmmmmm...THE TALK and 3D glasses.....? Might want to hold off for a while on that one, D! lolol!

xoxo laurie

Julie Marie said...

Hi Diana... I wish they would let little girls be little girls a bit longer before "the talk"... we did not have that until junior high... I hate to see little girls pushed into being grownups so fast these days... I know you want to keep yours little forever!... xoxo Julie Marie

Ellie VanCaster said...

Don't you want to volunteer to be the one with her at the talk? I can't even begin (or want to) imagine how that will be recieved-LOL

Tammy Henderson said...

Too funny... you gotta love em!

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

3-D glasses my FOOT!! LOL LOL LOL!
What's so funny indeed. Oh Sweet Cheeks the things you have to learn :)

Annmarie Pipa said...

my husband and I previewed "the Movie". 5th grade is pretty generic.. but by 7th grade the slope is way slippery and the government teaching stresses over the top acceptance and explanations of alternate life styles my kids never heard of..by 8th grade the movie teaches how the pill does wonders for all females of reproductive age...especially since it makes girls skin so pretty! so girls should all be taking it.

Debbiedoo's said...

LMAO!!~ Leave it to sweet cheeks. You know she don't want to miss a thing!

Linda Primmer said...

They are growing up fast! You are such a sweet Nana. Your little angesl are adorable as always.

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

What a funny story!!!!....The girls are just so precious!!

Anne said...

Ahh yes the talk I had to give that to my daughter in 5th grade and yes I felt she was too young.But since they were talking about it in school I felt I had too.My daughter seemed to take it really well.I know when I got the talk I was a bit grossed out LOL!

Donna said...

Oh boy, now wouldn't that be quite the movie! Geez, I never got "the talk", I was just given a library book when I was in the 4th grade, I remember a picture of a bee pollinating a flower! Good thing I never asked any questions!!

Gypsy Heart said...

Thanks for the chuckle today ~ very much needed after this week.

Rick Watson said...

pink*cherub*moon said...

ROFL!! Theater in the round and 3-D glasses? Scary thought! Funny kid! Hugs, Leena

Maureen said...

I don't think I could take the movie in 3D even at my age! ROFL Can we place our vote for you to be there when Sweetcheeks gets the talk? This we want to hear about!

ImSoVintage said...

oh boy, i am really getting a visual on that one. xo laura

Jettie said...

LOL, I can just see that movie now, with Sweet Cheeks being cheeky.

Deborah@Green Willow Pond said...

Hugs,
Deborah

Shopgirl said...

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I'm home and catching up on as many older posts as I can, Diana, and this one was a riot! I can just imagine THAT film in 3-D. : )

Pam said...

Oh, no. Not in 3D!!! I'm not sure anyone needs to see THAT in all its glory.

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

Heee Heee Heee!!!

TheMoonAndMe said...

Thanks for the chuckle. I'm glad I didn't have 3D glasses to see that movie. :)
Sounds like you've got quite some adventures ahead with that one.

miss flibbertigibbet said...

3D glasses for a reproduction movie? Hmmm...I remember the old B movie I saw once on TV...The Attack Of The 40 Foot Woman.....could you just imagine what 3D glasses could do to a pair of Fallopian tubes? it wouldn't be pretty.....
