The Pussycat Dolls and a Questioning Niece

While checking out Kim of Homesteader's Heart blog, I read a post of hers about a question her son asked. "How are boogers made?"

Kids come up with the craziest questions. As a Single Nester, I do not have children but I have two great nieces. Kim's blog post got me thinking about what crazy questions I have been asked.

About five years ago when the PussycatDolls came out with their first hit song, "Don't Cha," my younger niece who was around 9 at the time asked me on a warm summer day that I will never forget, "What does it mean when she sings 'Don't cha wish your girlfriend was raw like me?' ?"

Oh boy!

I gulped real hard and said something like "it means crazy." She seemed to believe me and I got out of that one unscathed.

It is a moment I will never forget! When she is no longer innocent old enough, I will remind her of this cherished question of youth.

What questions have you been asked by young 'uns?

Wait...I don't know what that means either haha. I guess I'm just as innocent.

Haha! I don't have any kids either, but at weekend sleep-over, my 7 year old nephew came out of the bathroom holding a box of tampons. I was mortified... until he said, "Can we go outside and light off these fireworks?" I thought I was going to die from laughter! Little kids are awesome!

Today I was aksed by my son what Rihanna meant by "Can you get it up?" in her Rude Boy song. I just said she meant his money and bank account. Can he get more cash flow. I hate that music is mostly sexual now. I hate more that I download the songs and learn to sing them by heart.

I always though the lyrics were "HOT like me." I have no idea what 'raw' means, unless they're talking about uncooked food. (Kinda doubt it, though.)

My 4 year old asked me where babies come from. I told her "from God" and then I distracted her with something. !!! :s

Girlfriend it's been cracking me up the responses I've had to my son's "booger" question. LOL! It's been sparking quite a few things in blogland. LOL!
And have mercy on the question you got asked! Yikes! I'll stick with the boogers. Get it? Stick? Oy!
Have a blessed Easter.

When my son was about 4, he came out of the bathroom with a panty liner stuck to his arm and knee and said "Mom, how do these bandaids work?"

Than another time he came out with a tampon all disassembled and asked "Mom I cant get this to whistle!" thank you hubby for calling them whistles! lmao

My only regret on both of these occasions, is that at the time I had no camera!
