The French

So, today the kids were watching Parent Trap in the car. It came to a point where two people greeting with a two cheek kiss. So Carly asked why people greet like that. Carly is 9. Caden (who is 7) tells her, "Its just something the French do."
I replied with a quiet, "Actually, that's not how the French kiss."
Well, Caden turned 12 shades of red and burst out laughing.
I called him on it.
Carly said, "What?"
I told Caden he was grounded to his room if he didn't explain to his sister - I was really hoping couldn't.
He said he'd rather be grounded but then let her know it was a kiss with a tongue.

OMG!!! How does he know this stuff? What are they talking about in first grade now-a-days? How did it skim right by my 9 yr old?

Or did it? Maybe she just played innocent to get the attention off of her.

of course Carly is innocent! Boys definately talk more about that stuff in school than girls do!
