My kids thought I was weird when they were growing up. I admit to doing some strange things. I took care of a 18 year old with testicular cancer. Embarrassed about the lump on this testicle he never told anyone until it was quite large, and quite late, too late to save his life. I was determined to spread the word. I went home where my 12 and 14 year old sons and about 4 of their friends were watching TV and proceeded to give them all a talk about the importance of monthly testicle exams and how they were as important as woman's monthly breast exam.
You never hear about it and did you know testicular cancer spreads very rapidly but it's very curable if caught early? My sons could have died but I thought it was important and I thought it should be taught in school. His friends, who still call me Mom, admit that after that lecture they all started doing the exam and even told their friends. So embarrassing my children was worth it, I think. I also would run out and wack them on the butt if I caught anyone of them spitting in my yard. Mike, my surrogate son who is in the Navy, told me he still expects me to come tearing out of the house to spank him if he spits, LOL. Its hard being the children of nurses. What terrible things did your do to your children?
Saw this on AOL news today.Ho Ho, No? State Bans Santa Beer - AOL News This happens to be the very same beer I bought last night. I bought it because of the label. Have I mentioned I collect Santa's? Now what is wrong with that label. They think having Santa on it would give children the wrong idea, well no children in this house so bottoms up! Hope it tastes as great as it looks.
