BYOC..brought us by the fab Draz
It’s Friday, my Skittles! That means it’s time for BYOC. Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer 5 questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break! Copy to your own blog and enjoy!

1. Whether you’re a parent or not….what do you think the appropriate age is to talk to a child about “the birds and the bees”?

I started talking to both of my boys at a very early age about gender differences and sex...but always tried to keep it "age appropriate".  I never wanted the topic of sex to seem "taboo" in our house. I had my first son when I was very young (not even old enough to drive) and I did NOT want my own children to become teenage parents. Both of my boys have had sex (they are 18 & 26) and both of them felt comfortable enough to tell me when they lost their virginity...and both of them practiced safe sex. I think it makes it much easier to talk about it when the talks start at an early age.

2. What’s the color scheme in your bedroom?

My walls are painted a color called "stonehenge" and my comforter is gold and dark purple/plummish color. The frames of the pictures on the wall are black.

3. What kind of shampoo and conditioner do you use on your hair?

I have several different kinds of shampoo/conditioner. I have a cosmetology license and although I don't do hair any more (except for family) I keep up my license mainly so I can shop at the beauty supply store for much cheaper than what the good stuff costs in the salon. Here are a few of the things in my shower now...

4. And since it’s nearly summer time…do you paint your own toes, go some place for pedicures or not paint your toes at all? What’s your fave toe color?
In the summer I go get a pedicure about every two weeks and I like very shocking bright pink. In the winter I only go about once a month and I usually go with a hooker red color.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week!

This week was really busy at work...meetings for all the upcoming 6th graders. Home life was ok. The Boy worked every night except one, so I feel like I never see him since I am usually in bed by the time he gets home from work. The Rockstar had several tennis matches (he is a tennis coach) this week, and band practice last I feel like I haven't seen him much either.
Since I have been the only one home in the afternoons all the housework (laundry, cleaning, etc) has been left up to me, which has left little time for keeping up in the blog world.. Only 6 more weeks and I will have all day to keep up with blogs. ...if I can drag my big butt off my float long enough to check them :)
