Lets see... all of the children are at school, Rusty just left for another business trip, the kittens have been fed, and it is going to be a cool day here. We are only going to up near 80.
So over the last few days it seems that all I have done is talk to the girls about sex.
Amber told me that she is going to take one of her friends down to the free clinic so she can birth control. This girl told Amber that her and her boyfriend have been having un protected sex. Amber goes on to tell me that there are so many pregnant girls at her school.
So I ask Amber is her and Sam used condoms. Ambers face lost all of her coloring. I reminded mber that both her and Nikki were conceived on the pill.
Amber said yes we used a rubber and I am still on the pill, but we are not having sex anymore. I told Amber that I can't stop her from having sex, but that she better use all the protection she can because the last thing she needs is a baby.
I go to pick Nikki up from softball. Nikki said that while they were having pictures taken the teachers were talking about all the pregnant kids in the school. There is a total of 24 students that are pregnant in their high school. Nikki also went on to tell me that only half of the seniors will graduate this year.
Well isn't this just wonderful news.
Nikki said that she is still going to wait until she is married to have sex, and that she wants to graduate college before she even thinks about having children. Nikki went on to tell me that if she is not married by 30 she will consider having a child out of wed lock.
What? I just left that one alone. I figure at 16 she does not know what she is talking about. I know that Nikki will find someone with her same values, but at 16.....
Nikki did tell that there is a boy named John that has a crush on her. Nikki said that Rusty might like him because he is on the golf team. I had to laugh. Rusty like a boy that wants to date his daughters. I said " Well him and Rusty can go golf together and then if Rusty does not like him then he can beat him with a club and burry him in a sand pit". Nikki just laughed.
Amber asked Rusty to take a day off and take her up to the college to help her enroll for college and get all the paper work so that she can use Rusty's veterans benefits.
So that will have to be done soon.
Amber also asked Rusty to make an appointment for her tattoo. That's right Amber is getting a tattoo for her 18th Birthday, and Rusty said that he would take her and pay for it.
Amber is going to get a turtle on her foot. My dad use to call Amber a turtle, so that is why Amber chose the turtle.
The other day Nikki asked me what she should say if she encounters war protesters while on her trip across the country.
Wow. I usually just leave them alone unless they get in my face and then I give it right back.
Several years ago while Rusty was in Iraq I went to war protest. The children and I made the front page! Imagine Rusty's shock when he saw that.
What happened was.... there was a group of protesters that started protesting at all of the bases in San Diego and then they were going to work their way up the coast. When they got to Pendleton the protesters got more then they bargained for.
There is nothing worse then a bunch of pissed off, sexually deprived marine wives. So we all got together and stood right there at the main gate protesting the protesters.
Today I am hoping not to talk about sex with my children. I am hoping to get all of the laundry folded, and get the house cleaned up a little bit.
On a good note, the kittens are now litter box trained and eating out of a saucer! I am so thrilled to not have to bottle feed them any more. The kitten should be going back to the shelter in mid June, so they can be adopted.
