Both of my boys are now ten and anything associated with underwear is a serious business. I noticed there were lots of looks between them with giggling and I decided I needed to do some investigating. We have serious talks while we are riding. They tend to talk more freely when (1) they can't see my face , and, (2) my hands are occupied and I can't reach them! Today, as we were riding home, this was our conversation:
Mama: Boys, did anybody get in trouble today at school? (I always like to ask that so they will trick the other one in spilling the beans on their behavior!)
Nikolai: No (giggles)
Deniska: Well, we didn't but ....
Mama: But, what?
Deniska: Nikolai, tell her.
Nikolai: Mom, you know Annie? (name changed to protect the innocent)
Mama: Yes, I believe I have heard you talk about her. Isn't she the one who likes you?
Nikolai: Yes, unfortunately she does. Well, today I had an eraser and it popped off my pencil and landed in the floor beside her. She thought I threw it at her, so she took her BRA and threw it at me! (This resulted in much
giggling laughing from the back seat!)
Mama: Why in the world did she have her bra off?
Nikolai: She said things weren't in there right and she just took it off!
I remember the first few days that I wore a bra. I came home, took it off, and threw it under my bed. Than, I told my mom that I had lost "it" at school! I guess some things never change from generation to generation. I truly hope Annie will keep her bra on from now on and I hope that's the LAST time a girl throws her bra at my son!
