Life with Mila | The S.E.X.

I haven’t done a post on Life with Mila since this one when we went to France to say goodbye to my grandmother. It was a sad time but reading Mila’s words made me burst out laughing again. Here is another one that will make me laugh for a long time…

Mila: “…my friend Magdalena is crazy. Lily said that no-one could be as crazy as she is”

Me: “why is she crazy?”
Mila: “She says she knows about S.E.X.”
Me: “About what?” (the look on Mila’s face just spelling it out was priceless)
Mila: “S.E.X.!”
Me: “What is this? Tell me…”
Mila:“Well you should know, you are a grown-up….”
Me: “Umm…yeah maybe but I’m not sure, tell me what Magdalena told you”
Mila: “No I can’t and anyway you know, you had me, so you should know…You know it’s when a boy and a girl do ummmm” (pressing her two hands like two people kissing like crazy).
Me: “Well..I had you 8 years ago so it’s a long time, I forgot about it :-)”
Steve: “Come on, tell us…”
Mila: “OK, give me £10 and I tell you…it means two things you know! “
Steve: “I give you £10 if you tell us and if we learn something”
Mila (who prefers collecting banknotes than stamps jumped on the opportunity) “OK….it means….CUL (bum)!!”
Steve said it was the best £10 spent to know of her continued innocence and to see me laugh like I did.

  1. So innocent, these days are precious, they are gone in a heartbeat.
    My children are 19 & 20, yet I remember the first time I looked at them & can’t believe it wasn’t yesterday!
    Beautiful Mila, xx

  2. Lovely girl! I still laugh when I remember my niece’s first conversation with me about s.e.x.: were we so innocent and darling? I believe I was until later on actually!
