Big Chunk found a tampon in an old backpack this morning. It’s been at least 2 and a half years since I’ve had the occasion to use such a thing due to being pregnant and/or nursing. TMI. I know. Anyway, he played with it for hours-opened it up swung it around like he had a dead cat by the tail. (We do that kind of thing here in the South.) When that got old he pretended like it was a key and stuck the string in the ignition of his Little Tykes car. Then he put the applicators on his fingers and pretended to have claws-white cardboard ones. Picture Edward Scissorhands but with tampon applicators.
Would a normal mom have taken the tampon away from her child? I took pictures. But I won’t post them- trying to preserve his dignity.
