My nine-year-old has been using the s-word, as in 'mum, look at those two dogs, they're having sex' (they weren't, as I rather pompously pointed out). Blogs about her now have to be Approved By The Management. Can you tell me where you got your panic button from please? I think I need one too!

Rosie Scribble

We're getting to the point where this blog will need to be Approved By The Management! Not really sure what I'll write about when that happens. Your comment has reminded me to keep my daughter away from dogs!!


Ha ha ha - mine is very similar and I found her with all my Chanel nail polishes lined up the other day, while trying to decide which one to wear - argh!! She uses 'Sexy' when she wants to wind me up, and then giggles like a loon when I turn into Victorian Mother and shout 'you're too young to use that word!!'

She's already outwitting me *sigh*

Rosie Scribble

Ha! I thought of you when writing this post having just read about your daughter's eighth birthday! I think mine is going to be winding me up about the word sexy for some time to come. She'll be after my make-up next, no doubt. They grow up fast!

Chanel nail polish you say? *glances at bare nails* Think I need to get shopping...

Hot Cross Mum

Oh blimey! My 3 yr old has taken to calling me booby-lady recently. It amuses him no end! With two boys I wonder what awkward questions they will hurtle at me as the years pass by. Gulp!

PippaD @ A Mothers Ramblings

I have discussed with Tops quite openly what sex and sexy and other similar words mean and why they are words that we don't need to use in our everyday vocab... so far it's working.

Now if only I could get Baby Boy to stop saying "Oh, for Goodness Sake!" No idea where he got that from... cough.


I think you're right to prepare yourself for the pre-teen and the *gulp* teenage years. Do what I did, don your tin helmet and don't take if off until they turn into adults.

Rosie Scribble

Oh heck. Booby-lady could stick and become your nickname forever!! You have a few years to go yet before the HUGE questions arrive, although based on my experience, it's best to start preparing for them now!

Rosie Scribble

I think it would be best if I sat down and had a frank discussion about these words. I seem to keep skimming over them, although she will probably be the one telling me what they mean, so best get in there quick.

My daughter says "Oh, for Goodness Sake" too which makes no sense as I have never used that expression in my life. Not once. *cough*

Rosie Scribble

Teenage years? *starts to sweat*. Yes, a tin helmet seems a good idea, although I was wondering if IJ could come over and stay with you, just until she's about 22? She's no trouble. *ahem*

mummy mania

oh this mad me laugh.... My daugher is 5 and is already sashaying about the place with a rather worrying amount of sass. With three girls I'm cowering in the corner with fear of the conversations ahead of me.....Mega Gulp!! Girls Aloud DVD????

Laid-back Mum

Ha bless her, how funny! Luckily M is only 7 months so I have time yet! Although she does have a habit of trying to bite my boobs in public!

Rosie Scribble

Oh gosh. Three girls. It's challenging enough with one. I'd hide your make-up bag if I were you. Even though Ruby is still very young, they'll all be fighting over it before you know it!

Rosie Scribble

The obsession with boobs will be back again before you know it!
