Miss Daughter and I went on a little shopping trip this evening.
Two stores, several purchases.
At store number one, due to a broken condom 6 weeks ago, a late period, and the possibility of the morning after pill not working. I purchased her an at-home pregnancy test.
At store number two, the purchases consisted of two vibrators... both very pretty in varying shades of blue, (one for her, one for me), batteries to go with, some lubricant , and two bumper stickers that portray our political leanings.
Yep, you read that right, I bought my 18 year old daughter her first vibrator, and ya'know what? It felt really good, great in fact.
By the way, the pregnancy test was negative. HUGE sigh of relief!
I didn't think the purchases had much of a connection. But, maybe, just maybe, I was nursing an unconscious silly hope that the vibrator would help negate the need for purchasing more at-home-pregnancy tests, at least until her birth control pills are effective. 'Tis a thought. Not a very rational one, but then again, I have never claimed to be a rational being.
It did put an irrational fear in Boyfriend's mind...he thinks she will prefer the vibrator to him...nah...couldn't happen. Could it?
