Sometimes, moms just try too hard. Consider this funny anecdote I came across:
Little 9-year-old Tommy had been playing outside with a few other kids when he ran in, breathless, to ask his mom a question:
"Mom!" he said. "What's that called when two people sleep in the same room and one is on top of the other?"
Well, Mom was a little taken aback, but she decided to tell him the truth: "Well, honey, it's called sexual intercourse." And before she could say more, he said, "Oh, OK," and ran back outside to play with the other kids.
Five minutes later, he was back. And he wasn't too happy.
"Mom," he said, annoyed. "It's not called sexual intercourse. It's called bunk beds. And Jimmy's mom wants to talk to you."
(Hee hee!! I'd love to take credit for this, but I can't. I read a version of it in a little magazine called The Body Mind Spirit Guide. I adapted it just a little. There was no author, or I'd happily give a name.)
