As I mentioned earlier this month, Noah got in trouble for using the word "balls" inappropriately in school. The day after he had to write sentences about it, he came home and had to write, "Using ANY word to describe testicles is not appropriate in school." I had a long talk with Noah about how certain things are private and just not cool to talk about. He was on his best behavior for a little while. Later that week, our new dog Honeybadger was scheduled to be neutered. At the last minute, the vet called and had to reschedule his appointment. That night, we had meatballs for dinner. Noah blurted out, "This is the perfect meal to celebrate Honeybadger getting to keep his balls today." I give up.
