Pigeon Love – The Update

by Jennifer on September 30, 2008

I apologize for leaving you on the edge of your seat, waiting to find out just what was in that Pigeon Tale O’ Love from which my daughter gleaned some supplemental knowledge of the birds and the bees.

Well, the birds, anyway.

I’ve left you hanging longer than I meant to, and she’s had two library days since then. Sadly, the book was checked out the first week – and is still checked out.

By a 6th grader, for two weeks.

Not that we mind here, since a kid in 6th grade is bound to need that sort of knowledge at least four or five decades years before my Girl will. I hope 6th Grader* takes his/her time and learns all the basics now, so he/she doesn’t end up having to take the after-school Lamaze class in junior year and possibly have to marry the daughter of a vice presidential candidate. Because that would be a bummer.

In fact, I hope 6th Grader** went for the multi-pronged strategy, and also brought home this book (yeah, I misread the subtitle, too) and maybe a copy of this .

So we wait. Of course, by now it’s just me, waiting. The rest of you don’t even have to pretend you’re interested. Unless, of course, you’re really unclear about what “crashing into each other” means. You should probably stick around.

*Probably not his/her real name.
**Ohmygawd, that’s just two years older than my boy and I am not ready for serious talks about birds or bees. (We’ve covered a few basics, in case you’re wondering…)


A Giveaway

A few weeks ago, the folks at Build-A-Bear Workshop offered to send me the new Disney Hannah Montana Bear (to keep), along with a $25 Build-A-Bear gift card to give away to one of my readers.

And I sold out was all, “Sure!” and now the Girl is over the moon, and one of you will have a reason to go to the mall. Win-win, right? (Don’t judge me.)

So, leave me a comment between now and this Friday, October 3, and you’ll be entered to win the gift card. Easy peasy.

Dude, Build-a-bear rocks my world.

I probably shouldn’t have admitted that out loud

I have been trying to score one of these cards for my lil gal. I have never been to build-a-bear, and kind of want to see what its all about.

First… fair warning….

No matter how prepared you think you might be for things only someone 6th grade and older should know…. you won’t be. It will STILL feel like it just smacked you in the face when you realize that your beautiful baby boy is suddenly a teenager whom you have to remind on a near-daily basis that No, the girlfriend is not allowed in the house when the parents aren’t home, and No, you aren’t allowed in her house when her parents aren’t home, either.

I am still just not ready for this.

Easy peasy! You know I’d comment anyway because I can’t keep my mouth shut!

I am waiting to hear if the book really said they went crashing into eachother. I live a sad life.

I am waiting on the edge of my seat to see how this goes. I am trying to get the nerve to sit down my fourth grader, who has multiple friends who KNOW, to have THE talk. I’m scared out of my mind!

Let’s hope the 6th grader reads and completely understands this book. And follows it up with a long talk with her mom too.

I’ve never gone to Build A Bear but had thought since Princess is graduating this year that it might be a special way to remember in many years to come her special day.

Just want to point out that I come here because I think you’re a phenomenal writer and not because I’m hoping to score a freebie. I probably *shouldn’t* reply today because my daughter is addicted to Build-A-Bear and her stuffed animals are threatening to overtake her bedroom, but wow, she’d love a Hannah Montana bear, too. And I would love for that bear to be $25 off. LOL!!

The “talk” and my kids – ugh. Difficult to think about. I hope they have the pigeon book at their school library.

Bird porn is all the rage right now.

(I like the crashing into each other explanation myself. Good stuff.)



Bruce October 1, 2008 at 11:30 am

One of the little perks about never having had children is that I don’t have to worry about the birds and bees concept. Thank Goodness.

Is there a ‘Sally Grows Up’ for boys? Is it even in print these days?

I bet the Sixth Grader’s older brother is ready the book …

I love that the book is also a Hardcover. Ha ha ha.

My daughter has always wanted to do a build a bear. This could be her chance.

I hate to tell you that we covered oral sex in 7th grade. In detail. Because it was going on–with kids we knew!

About the Build-A-Bear. Did they say WHY they were doing this? Did they find you because you linked to them before? Did they READ that post? I bet anything that’s how you got their attention, then they probably have some way of seeing your traffic, so that’s it. That is SOOOO funny to me. Sometimes you just have to take what you can get. But don’t pass it on to me!

We’re going through some interesting stuff at our school with a 6th grader – and I just don’t even begin to understand how some kids have interest / knowledge about the things they USED TO BE talking about. Good Grief. I laughed out loud at that first book you made us look at. The power of suggestion is fairly significant. Please do keep us posted though – even if Girl loses interest – we aren’t. Is she still looking for the book?
