Things I Worry About As A Mom
- Will my boys eat whole foods when they fly the coop and maintain the cellular healthy eating habits I have taught them,
- Texting drivers on the road when my kids (and everyone else's kids) are out riding their bikes,
- The fact that my kids rarely go out on their bikes :( ,
- I have brought 2 males into this world and will I let loose 2 more males who are clueless about female sensual anatomy and pleasure? (Trust me there are more worries but I will stop here for now.)
Which leads me to...
Random Thoughts on Female Anatomy and Sensuality
Much to my kid's humorous despair, yes, we talk about these things at the dinner table: female anatomy and sensuality, being good partners in a relationship, etc.
Which of course brings up their ever present questions: "Why can't you be a normal Mom? Do you think other families have these dinner time discussions?"
To which I reply... "Other people's dinner time discussions are not my concern. I want to make certain I send happy, healthy males out into this world who will appreciate and love up their women."
When I was 20 years old I took my first job in OB/GYN nursing working as an office nurse for a fine ON/GYN Doc. I fell in love with Maternity Nursing. Wait, who am I trying to kid? As a student nurse watching my first delivery, I fell in love with Maternity Nursing, but I did my obligatory time, one year as a Med/Surg Nurse, to sharpen all my nursing skills.
I have always been amazed at the miracle of life: two half cells (egg and sperm) come together and create one whole cell. This one cell splits and divides billions and billions of times to create each and every organ system (200 different types of cells doing different jobs in the body!). Does this not amaze you?
Another thing that fascinated me is how the fetal reproductive tract is exactly alike the first 2 months of pregnancy. That is correct; our reproductive tissues look and are exactly alike until about 8 weeks!
At about 8 weeks if a fetus has the XY chromosome structure the fetus begins to produce testosterone which then differentiates the reproductive tract into male organs, genitalia. This is so cool to me: left unchecked by testosterone, the fetus will always develop as a female. Was the Eve created from Adam story a bit off? Hmmmm....
My ramblings about female and male sensuality could go on, will go on, but I must now go bake an apple pie for my darling sons whom I hope to encourage and inspire to be great partners in the ever present dance of love, sensuality, and sexuality that we dance throughout our lifetimes.
