Bra Drama

Princess decided it was a good idea to take a dare from one of her girlfriends, and put one of her training bras in a boy's locker at school. Then, when the boy embarrassed her about it in front of the class, she thought it was a good idea to go tell the teacher this boy was nasty to her.

And of course, teacher called home. After telling her she asked for it.

Good call, Princess. Brilliant.

Princess is grounded for 3 days.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. Obviously the padded variety is a bad idea, too much attention. Back to the pull over ones, sorry girlfriend. But, she was comfortable doing this? Or was the dare just too much to walk away from. Or, is the friend who put her up to it a pervert? Friend's parents are Republican, so I'm starting to wonder.

She's 10.

It is both funny and creepy at the same time.

When I was 10, if a boy even said the word bra to me I would have been mortified. White blouses were a source of insecurity to me at 14 (see thru factor). I wore a cardigan with my Catholic school girl uniform for that reason, when it was 80 degrees. My mom told me sex was something only monkey's did. And I believed her.

I cried for a week when my Dad spotted my training bra and said "why didn't you just give her a couple of band-aids?".

Note: Mr. Right just reading the words means I'm going to get a foot rub tonight.

This cracks me up and this is only the beginning. Oh you joined a family with a youngin at such a ripe age!

I miss when she was three and a half.

Ha, I think it's funny. I know you need to ground her, but she kinda sounds like me when I was that age

It's funny, but the more time that passes, the more it seems like no big deal.

At the time it was a consern, but since then we have gotten in to her head quite a bit over it and it does seem like it was an innocent joke

If she puts her panties in some dude's locker, then I will worry ;)
