Parts Daddy and Cameron have that Cora doesn’t…

Cora’s started to read.  Actually, she started to read last year in kindergarten, and is now going gangbusters.  So things that I didn’t have to worry about her noticing before are now more of an issue.  We were at the mall yesterday, and she saw a release notice for ‘Sex and the City’.  She asks me ‘what’s S-E-X spell?’  Minor gulp.  ‘Sex’, I tell her.  ‘What’s that?’.  More major gulp.  ‘Um, good question – let me think of a good way to explain it to you’.  After some spurts and fumbling (and several more questions on her part), we get to the mechanical question – how’s it work?  So I say, well, you know that Daddy and Cameron have something that you and I don’t, right?  She answers: curly hair?  Nearly shot soda out of my nose…

For those of our friends who have younger kids than us, remember, Cora’s 6 (!).  Your time is quickly approaching.  So start considering answers soon to the most interesting questions you can think of.  The ones that have an odd hand grenade quality – dropped unexpectedly, they tend to make you want to scatter.  And malls just don’t have nearly enough cover.
