This was the title of a note sent home from GB. I knew instantly what it was. If you were a child of the late eighties early nineties, you probably know exactly what I’m talking about.
In 5th grade the girls and the boys were separated to attend a special viewing about our bodies and to warn us that some crazy changes were a coming. Mary Lou Retton hosted this atrocious cheesy video. I don’t remember specifics but I remember Mary Lou. I think a tampon and a glass of water was involved but I could be wrong. I shudder at the thought of what the boys had to watch and who the B list star host was. For some reason bananas and condoms come to mind. Shudder. (Oh the Google search results for this post!)
According to GB’s class note it is recommended that the parents also attend this little video session. Uhm, no thanks I’ll pass. Can you imagine me sitting in on the “boys section” and wrangling a 4yr old who would either be bored to tears or ask uncomfortable questions? Could you also imagine the embarrassment of being a 10 year old boy and sitting in on a “body changing” video while your mom also watches with the rest of the boys in your class? I’m all about embarrassing your kids but I have my limits.
I did explain briefly what this video may partake (shoot I could totally be wrong and his poor little mind would be really warped) and told him that if he has questions about “things” to let
his dad us know. His quote to me was; “Mom, I’m to young to die!” Hehe if you only had half an idea what this video is about, dying would be the last thing on your mind.
