The Backwoods

Where we teeter between our love of modern convenience and the yearning for something long past; a world where neighbors knew your name and a “Friend Request” was eye contact and a smile.

Anthony…on Puberty

Posted · 1 Comment

Because we live in the sticks a trip anywhere takes a while.  Most people like to crank up the radio and sing or roll down the windows and listen to the wind.  Anything to drown out the kids.  I like to stick all three small boys in the seat behind me and then be very quiet…I learn so much.

(Anthony, 10 and Luke, 9)

Anthony: “I need to eat more. I’m going to go through puberty in two years.”

Luke: “What’s puberty?”

Anthony: “It’s where you grow taller. Girls have puberty first. That’s why you are the shortest kid in class.”

Luke: “I’m going to do that today then.”

Anthony:  “You can’t just choose when you go through puberty…you’ll learn about it in sex ed.”

Luke: “WHAT?”

Anthony: “Boys do it in fifth grade and girls do it in fourth, ’cause they are taller. You learn about growing and about sex.”

Luke: “Eeewwwweeee….”

Anthony: “Never mind, I’m not going to even talk to you about it….you’re not ready.”

(why doesn’t this kid have his OWN blog?  He kinda steals the limelight…) haha
