An education from the bus

My kids have never ridden the bus till this school year and they only ride it home. It seems the Big girl is learning way more here than I am ready for....
Yesterday all four of us were in the car and from the back the Big girl is telling us a lovely tale of two people "making out" on the bus...before I can stop this conversation from progressing she adds something about someone talking about a condom on the bus.... as I am trying not to sound horrified as I tell her we need to change the subject...the little girl asks what a condeming is... I'm stammering saying "nothing, we'll talk about it later" all the while giving the Big Girl the evil eye in the rear view mirror... by this time Mike has started laughing and the Little girl adds "apparently dad knows what it is...is it a drug, what does it do". I could have gone forever without that conversation!
It was awful! It is not right, things I'm ready for them to learn are presented on the bus! I don't know how else to get them home... I've told them to sit in the front and not talk to anyone! I'm feeling like the bad mom letting them ride the bus...ugh. We had a long talk after the little girl got out at dance about appropriate talk around the sister!


I am thankful tomorrow is Friday.
I am thankful we don't have any plans this weekend
I am thankful God stirred Mike's heart a little this week

Yes, I am a little late going through my reader! Well. I feel for you. That is not what you want them learning. It doesn't even start with "r". And I have given that evil eye in the mirror so many times.
