from knitting to sex and back again

January 19, 2005

My friend LeAnne just told me I have to blog more - of course I do, but sometimes life intrudes.

Crazy few days - maybe crazy week. DH was sick, sick sick. Amazing how much more work there is taking care of 5 kids alone. Must mean he really helps a lot. I am tired tired tired of the kitchen, dishes on the counter, dishwasher not emptied, kids that could help missing.

Even seems like hardly any knitting got done. But I must have done some, other wise I could be totally CRAZY. Oh wait I am!!! But knitting. Finished DH's watch cap without him knowing. Am very proud of myself that he was very surprised. The Cascade 220 tweed Charcoal, in K1P1 rib turned out really nice.

Image Hosted by It was pretty funny – was DH’s birthday yesterday. Gave him the watch cap and a pipe –wanted the pipe cause it reminded him of fond memories of his dad. So he was sitting there in watch cap with pipe hanging out of mouth and he looked just like the old man in the sea. I am sure he smelled like fish!

Then at dinner S 16 yrs said D 15 yrs made a joke about wanting the sign from the Tea aisle at the store. The rest of the kids cracked up and she turned bright red. So DH and I knew we had missed something. Someone mentioned some nickname for and DH and I still were lost. Then D could have killed S as he explained the sexual practice the nickname referred to. Even the 11 yr old knew what they were talking about. Sometimes I think we are tooooo open, that the 11 yr old knew, and that we were talking about it at the dinner table. Although the kids were not sure the liked joking about sex with their PARENTS.

Oh yeah, back to knitting

Started the beaded sock for the 6 sox knitalong, it's ok.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.usKnitting is fine, am not totally thrilled with the colors, and I wish the beads were a little smaller - but SD saw it yesterday and LOVED it, so I quickly said - "well I am making them for you." She was so excited - do you know that 15 yr old girls have this squeal when they are excited, bet you can imagine what she sounded like. So the socks will have a good foot that loves them, and I am happier finishing them. Have tried the Magic Loop one needle technique and love that.

Now have to run, may do some knitting and have a cup of tea!!!! (like my kids say JK LOL JK)

HAHAHAHA!!! No, I did NOT know what that was. I wonder if C and G do know. I'll bet they've heard about it at school.

What are you using to make your Aiblhinn out of? I want to make that.

alright, i'm saying uncle.... what did this tea-aisle sign say?? i might need to go get one....

just my opinion, but it is better than they are not ashamed of sexuality (it's human nature) and kudos to you for being so open with your kids.

It wasn't what the tea bag aisle said it is what Tea Bagging is.

I found the definition for Tea Bagging at

I think you are right as well, with 5 pre teens and teenagers I really want them to be comfortable talking to us about sex and if that comfort starts joking about it that is fine ( and actually pretty funny most times.)
