5 Question Friday

1. What do you enjoy doing the most with your spouse? Hmm it has been so long since I have even seen him. Seriously I love when we can go away to someplace fun like a amusement park and completely act like kids and run around and play. 2. How do you eat your taco? From the top or from the side? This is the best question ever. Most days I will either break it up and eat it with a fork or I will break off the extra crunch part (because who wants a taco without meat) and then eat it from the side. 3. Have you ever shut off the basement light and ran like a fool because you knew someone was down there and would get you? Oh man, my hero deploys and I am nuts about the things I do. This deployment my amazing teenager has started making sure everything is locked and the alarm is on. 4. If you could change one thing about you what would it be and why? Give me a month and I will tell you a big one. Okay, I would be quieter and sweeter, I would speak calmer to my kids and show more praise. 5. What age do you think is appropriate to have the "bird and the bees" talk with your children? This is hard. When my daughter turned 10 I took her away to a hotel for the night. We had a brief basic talk then. My husband and I talked to my son when he was about 12. I think it is not a age but a child. I think you tell them as they need to know. With girls I think you talk about menstruation a couple years before it could happen. When my oldest daughter started her cycle she could have cared less because we had discussed it so often.

That is awesome that your teen is helping lock things up. It's nice that you've got that around so you don't always have to worry. Amusement parks are the best place no matter what age.

I like the idea of going away and talking one on one with your child. It makes it seem like more of a right of passage and something special. I'll have to remember that when it's time for me!
