to my desire
to stay ignorant
My eyes are still dry and red. I just finished watching a video called, "Where Do Babies Come From?" My 3rd grade son will be watching this video in his class in the upcoming weeks of school. It is a video designed to answer - in an age appropriate and Biblically sound way - the common questions of this age group regarding human sexuality.
I AM NOT READY FOR THIS! I don't want my son to have this information! I don't want him to grow up! I want him to stay pure and young and innocent. Even ignorant....
Hmmm... this reminds me of my last post. Once Christopher gets this information, he can't go back. He will no longer look at the world through uninformed eyes. (Okay, here I am crying, again.) Wow! Who is doing the growing up here - him? or me?
So, here I am again... knowing that I will miss the days when Christopher was oblivious and would stay a little boy forever. Do all mom's go through this...or is it just because I have an only child?
