Circle Time - Not kid friendly!

"My husband went in for a vasectomy this summer and was 'bed-ridden' for just a couple of days. He spent his time in the basement on the couch playing video games, which was fine with me. Our 4 year old daughter, A, went downstairs to see Daddy when he happened to be cleaning and changing his bandages. Being a curious pre schooler, she asked what he was doing. We are pretty open and honest in our house so DH proceeded to tell her how he had to make a little 'nest' so that things wouldn't move around and get hurt. She watched and went about her day and we didn't think too much about it. A few days later A's pre school teacher caught me before we left and had told me that A had shared the whole thing during circle time. She had told her teachers and all of her friends, in GREAT detail, about Daddy's surgery and the little 'nest' that he had to make. Her teacher laughed heartily while recounting the story and told me how hard it was to keep a straight face while A innocently shared such a personal story!"
