Tonight the big boys attended a two-part information session at school: part one was "How We Began" and part two was "Puberty Clues". You get the picture.
Charlie was typically quiet about the idea of going. Jasper stood in the kitchen bouncing a rubber ball filled with a 3D underwater scene and said "I think they have these every year and last year it was about S - E - X!" (Nervous giggle.) "What's a pubicle?"
Ah, wouldn't you love to have overheard the schoolyard chatter which led to that?
I would have liked to have gone but we had no babysitter.
Andy went into the fray and Clem and I stayed home and made cupcakes.
The session was apparently excellent, pitched just perfectly for the upper primary audience. The big boys were bouncing off the walls when they got home. It certainly seemed to have snapped the eleven year old out of a silent afternoon funk. I almost expected them to come home changed somehow but they were still just my boys.
Phew. Well, that's done. And I'm still giggling like a silly schoolkid at pubicle.
