One of those not-so-proud Parenting Moments

Not-so proud parenting moment...

Emma got in trouble at school today (3/3/11) for "pretending to urinate on Bryce."

DH and I were trying not to chuckle when discussing the incident with Emma at dinner tonight. She has been mentioning for several weeks that she and her friends play "Werewolf " at recess. ("Twilight" inspired, perhaps?) Basically, one or two kids are "werewolves" who chase the others around.

Apparently today while Emma was in "werewolf form," she pretended to pee on a boy. As she explained it at dinner, this is partly because they were debating whether or not "girl werewolves" lift their legs up to pee. Oh my!

Can you really fault the kid for exploring science? (Kidding!)

LOL! Well, if that's what she's getting in trouble for, I guess you're home free.

I would have had a hard time keeping a straight face while discussing it with her, too. :)

Oh I love it. So cute! Sometimes it's so hard to be a parent :)

It isn't something you taught her to do, so definitely not a bad parenting moment. The things these kids will do.

No, you can't fault her!! She wasn't trying to hurt or humiliate him, just having fun. LOL :)
I understand you're a little embarassed though!!

That's my niece! I certainly hope that wasn't one of her moments that made you think she was just like her aunt!!

However, Em's not the first to wonder about this either... Check out http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081225184718AArIHDj

Now the only question I have is... Does Em still think Bryce is her boyfriend but she hasn't told him yet? :)

Her Grandma La France responds: With a male dog as her faus-sibling, why wouldn't Em have that question??? All kids have "nature" curosity. Girls usually choose to talk it through with each other, even if they have same sex feelings. Boys make jokes & cuss to show being manliness & may risk more touchy-feely as words are usually not their thing. Boys & girls together are more exploratory...as all of us who ever had pre-school doctors approach or touch us know. Altho you don't parade nude & seldom cuss, you are open with her & answer questions she has. She has had a broad spectrum of reading/movies much beyond many 6 yr olds. In her mind what she did was to illustrate a question. Punishment is not in ordr, while showing her it is not appropriate at school was. How the teacher followups in her best
interest should be the remaining issue.

should be the remaining issue. Dinner talk is sometimes the best & most-lasting lesson.

Oh my! We have had a few of those moments in the last several months thanks to the collective minds of kindergarten!
