None of Ethan-6yr's Business!
Holy Mama! has moved to holymama.org, please update your links and feeds.  Thank you!

Just another conversation with Ethan-6 yr:

"So, Mom?"


"When do you think you and dad will be ready to mate again?"

(long, stunned pause.)


Ethan-6yr was genuinely puzzled at my response, having thought it was a perfectly reasonable question. Sheesh.

No more Animal Planet for awhile, I think.

I really could have used a "Use the Restroom Before You Read This" warning!!! OK, not quite that bad, but TOOOOO funny!!!

It reminds me of the day a few years ago, when my son (now 11) asked from the 3rd row of the Suburban on the way to church, "Mom...Do you know what an STD is?"

Gasp..Cough...Hack!! (pause to gather composure)

"Um...Son, what do you think it is?"

Unfortunately, he really did want to know about THAT!!

Oh my word, this is just too funny. This reminds me of the time when "W" was watching her hamsters mate. The male was licking the female in the behind area. You could see the cogs turning in her head and asked..."Does Dad lick your bottom?" Like a stoplight..from yellow mama to red mama!

Hmm, wait until he watches a show in which he finds out some animals eat their young ...! Just kidding, how funny!

I can think of a lot more awkward ways he could have posed that question. Maybe Animal Planet's a GOOD thing.

First off, that was tooooo funny. Yellow Mama made me scare the cat.

Now if you are interested, my pastor has a 10 year old who is just as precocious.
