Inspired by this thread.
For the past ten years, I have worked with animals. First at a Humane Society, then in research. When my nephew asked about what I did, I told him about taking care of the critters. I never mentioned the more gruesome aspects of my career: euthanasia, disposing of bodies, etc.
One day, when Nephew was 5 or 6, he had a little fight with a friend. Nephew looked at his playmate and said, “You better be good! My Aunt Mouse is here and she kills things.”
:eek: I was flabbergasted!
Have any kids in your life surprised you with “forbidden” knowledge?
