Sex and Teenagers!

Teenagers and sex, two words that I have a hard time talking about, two words that I was NOT prepared to talk about with my eldest daughter. Those are also the two words that she wished I talked more freely about (she told me that). Amanda, my eighteen year old, told me that she wished I had talked openly to her about sex. Fail on my part. Seriously, I must have missed the parent manual handout at the hospital.

So with Megan, my thirteen year old, I’m taking a different approach… we’re talking sex, we’re talking cyber bulling and sex texts. We’re talking about loving our bodies and respecting ourselves. We’re talking about oral sex and contraception. And let me tell you, it’s NOT EASY! Maybe because my mom didn’t talk to me about it and everything I learned was from my friends, which was total bull.

Boys and girls are curious about each other’s bodies and if you think that your pre-teen doesn’t discuss in graphic detail what a blow job is then you are in for a huge slap in the face.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret, THEY DO TALK ABOUT IT!!! They talk about it A LOT!

And it’s frightening.

When I was offered up a book to review called Start Talking I immediately said YES, because like I said, I’m not very good at having these talks. This book is playful, straight to the point and easy to read. It has opened up the lines of communication between my daughter and I and I’m thoroughly pleased with it.

Start Talking is geared towards moms and daughters, however, I think it would be beneficial to dads as well, especially single dads of daughters.

Y’all should check it out!

And get this… I have two copies to give away! They’d make a great gift to anyone that is desperately trying to understand their hormonal teenage daughter.

Leave me a comment if you’re interested in receiving a copy of Start Talking! Easy peasy huh?

Giveaway will end on November 26th.

Must have accessories for your teenager!

OK, here’s the deal… I’m here to talk to you guys (and girls) about menstruation, the monthly visitor, Aunt Flow, or whatever it is you want to call it.

Dot Girl has a really cool product to make the ‘talks’ a little easier on you and your daughter. Girls get their period. Period. There’s no getting around it, it WILL happen. My daughter is 12 and she is one of those girls that does NOT want to address the fact that she will indeed have her period one day. My eldest daughter was different, she called me in to see it and she celebrated for a few days. She embraced her passage into womanhood with pride, but not my 12 year old. She stuffs her face into her pillow and puts her fingers in her ears every time I try to discuss it, so I got her a Dot Girl kit!

I think it’s awesome! The kit is in a cute and discrete little bag and in it there is a pamphlet, panty liners, pads, coupons for more pads, a period calendar, a mini heating pad to help eliminate cramps and more! Seriously, how cute is it??

I think this is a must for parents of pre-pubescent girls, especially you single fathers out there (yes Trooper Thorn and Coach Dad I’m looking at you). Our house is constantly full of teenage girls and I think having these cute little kits around eases the embarrassment that some girls have discussing their menstruation. I’ve seen my daughter checking out her kit at night with a flashlight when she thinks I’m not looking and I know it will lead to discussions as soon as she’s ready.

I’m thinking of getting several more kits to keep in the guest bathroom for when my daughter’s friends come over and need supplies.

Check out Dot Girl and if you would like a kit for your daughter simply leave a comment and one of you will get a cute discrete period kit! (If you aren’t one of the lucky winners, go to their site and enter coupon code DOT for a 10% discount)

Giveaway ends on November 24th.

2009 hair styles!

Looking for a hot new hair style for 2009? There are endless possibilities, first, lets look at THE BOB…

The Bob …
Precision cut bobs are huge this year, coupled with smooth, sleek styling, a blunt fringe and heaps of shine. Your bob should be carefully crafted to accentuate your unique facial structure, or highlight a long, beautiful neck.

Bob hair styles range from ear level to shoulder skimming and are best for straight or slightly wavy hair.

Eva Longoria opted for a classic elegant bob.

And Reese Witherspoon’s went for a 50-s inspired wavy bob for the “Four Christmases” Movie Premier in LA.

And if you’re feeling a little more funky… incorporate a mod feel into your bob, just like gorgeous Gwyneth Paltrow did!

BTW,bangs go great with bobs, but only opt for the bangs if it works with your facial structure.

And if you are still questioning this hair style, just remember that fashion icon and Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour also wears a classic bob, and who knows fashion and style better than her! BTW, editors-in-chief of French and Russian Vogues also opted for this glamorous hair style!

Health benefits of Honey Dew Melon

Honeydew melons have similar nutritional benefits of summer and winter squash and they are low in calories and high in their water content. They provide an excellent source of vitamin C and are also a very good source of potassium, copper, and B vitamins (including thiamine, niacin, B6, and pantothenic acid).

Due to their high water content and combination with potassium, honeydew melons are helpful in maintaining healthy blood pressure levels and for flushing harmful toxins from your body. They also provide several key nutrients that are particularly beneficial for healthy skin.

Get thee some Honey Dew Melon, it’s mmm mmm good and so good for you!
