I'm going to quit driving my kids places. True story from last night's 10 minute drive with the teens to drop them off at their activities:
18 Year Old Son: Mom, can I have sex since I'm 18 now and technically an adult?
Me: You can have sex now that you're 18 but you probably shouldn't. I don't want any grandchildren.
Son: Well, if I'm gonna have sex and get some girl pregnant, it better be worth it.
Me: (remaining calm because we've had this conversation before) I think it's probably worth it. Otherwise, people wouldn't have sex if they didn't want babies. Not that I want either of you to have sex until you're ready.
15 Year Old Daughter: Well, now that you've made it seems so interesting....
Me: I'd think that it would already be interesting. (to son) Maybe you should talk to your friends who are having sex and ask them these questions.
Son: None of them are having sex.
Me: (sarcastically) What's happened to kids today? In my day, we were doing it like monkeys.
Son: So you had sex when you were a teenager.
Me: I didn't say me.
Daughter: But you said "we."
Son: And you dated Dad in high school. (to his sister). Mom and Dad did it.
Me: I didn't say that.
Son: Do you and Dad have still do it?
Me: That's really none of your business. You're a little too interested in my sex life.
Son: Well, you said it was worth it.
Me: What do you want me to tell you--that your father is a stallion in bed?
Daughter: Who thinks puppies are cute? I think puppies are cute. What about you guys? Do you think puppies are cute?
The conversation only went downhill from there. I think their father needs to take them to their activities. He says the conversations are not NEARLY as uncomfortable.
