I should have seen it coming, I should have had my answer ready and I wouldn’t have had a panic attack. Just before my son went to college, he and my daughter were in the room with me while I was typing away on the laptop. Suddenly my daughter asked ‘Mom what in the world are you doing on the computer? You used to check your email once a day for 5 minutes and you are always on.’ My son chimed in ‘Yeah, every time you sit down you grab that thing up like it was your security blanket!’

Don’t panic, make something up! What? They know most of my friends and family rarely use email. Okay I could tell them I’m talking to strangers I just met on line about how much I love a good spanking just before their dad and I have wild, passionate, monkey sex! No, they will never believe that. I could tell them I am exchanging receipts over the internet. No, that is even less believable than the spanking story! I decided on some version of the truth.

I told them that had started talking to some folks one the internet, mostly parents, some who had little kids and some who were experiencing the empty nest. I told them we talked about everything from cooking, to sex, to potty training. To my great relief they immediately lost interest. Now, so I won’t be a liar, here goes. Cooking: I don’t do it any more. Potty training: I’m for it. I think I’ve already mentioned the sex part, haven’t I?

Paul, Eva,
I try to be an honest mother and you torment me!

Hi Elis ~ I've been stopping by your place a bit lately, just wondering when you'd start talking about something interesting like potty training. All the others ever talk about are spankings and sex. Sheesh!

Seriously, though, I just wanted to say hello and let you know I was lurking around. I'm pretty harmless.. just ask Eva and Ceeci. :)

I so glad you stopped to say Hi. Tomorrow I may go wild and discuss the dewey decimal system!

Glad to have you any time.

Hey kids, your mom is looking at PORN!

I like the reverse parenting here. Cute.

Looks like your still shook up there.

So, about the dewey decimal system, I checked and there does not seem to be a classification for PORN. Sorry, I know, major disappointment. But, I did find the naked librarian page.

I love talking about potty training. Did you use cheerios for your son to aim at? I did.

Can we talk about gardening? I love gardening. Naked gardening is my favorite.

Actually I was good at potty training, or rather my kids seemed to be fast learners. And yes we used cheerios!

For the naked gardening you will have to check in with CeeCi. Plants seem to die when I come close! It's very sad.

My first job was in a public library. The sex books were filed in the .026 section, usually next to the psychology books. I wondered what they had to do with one another, I was very young. The books on contraception and other things were in the 400's section. I always liked it when I had to shelve there.

We kept the Playboy and Penthouse magazines behind the desk in the periodicals department. Yep, our county library subscribed.

And now you know and I know, you're really fast on your feet. Good answer, spoken like a true mom.

**Big Hugs**

Oh, I garden fully clothed, I sunburn too easily.

Yep all you had to do was mention sex, and that shut them right up!
