How I love Spanish class...

Okay, I know this is kind of silly but yesterday one of my teachers came to class and somehow we got on the subject of "the big talk" that parents have to have with their kids. I'm sure you all know what I mean. So, my dear teacher tells us the story of "the big talk" that he had with his son.

He waited until the two of them were going to be alone for a long time together--a trip to Salt Lake with just the two of them! He said he was worried that his son already knew too much and he wanted him to time to ask questions and really get the truth out. So my teacher on the way back from their little jaunt, turns to his son and says, "Son, we need to have a talk. Do you know what we are going to talk about?" Can't you just imagine how awkward this is for both father and son?! And so the son lets out a long sigh and turns to his dad and says, "Yes....we are going to talk about how I'm going to start my period soon, aren't we?"

My poor teacher had a lot of explaining to do to his little 11 year old son! It was just funny because not only is this just a classic example of how parents and children are never on the same page, but just how much worse it could be. I know this has nothing to do with me or spanish or anything at all in my life, but it was just too funny not to share! Oh how I can't wait to be a parent!!
