News

I heard from John. He is fine. I cried.

I made the decision on Tuesday evening to discuss the news with the WildChild. We sat down in the living room and I told her what had been on the news. I was getting a little concerned that she might hear it somewhere else. Not that I think she's watching the news on the sly or anything, but I wanted to make sure she heard it from me and not some other, sensationalized source.

We talked about what had been in the newspaper and on the television. She looked a little worried until I told her a few times that it was a Stryker, which isn't something that Dad drives or rides in. She asked a few more questions which I couldn't answer, like when will he call or email again?

Talking to your child about sex? That's the easy shit, trust me.
