Parental Discretion Advised!
This is the book to have. Printed in 1975 and apparently my brother's book, this resurfaced and I just couldn't see it thrown away.
I'm going to show you some of the pictures from the book. I am not going to show you all of the pictures because I don't want to get banned from blogger. :)
"Try not to be embarassed. These changes happen to everyone."
"But first a word from your hormones..."
This part talks about your lively hormones, what hormones are and what they do.
"Puberty is pretty much the same the whole world over."
This is the portion of the book where I started to laugh hysterically. They tackle "the world's most embarassing questions" and believe me... there are a lot of embarassing questions.
"You and your breasts, the beginning of a beautiful friendship."
"Breasts, like women, come in all shapes and sizes."
I'd say that mine used to fall in line with lady #5 but then I had the lumpectomy and they now fall in the direction of lady #4 and I'm thinking after Peanut is born they I'll have one in it's original state (due to radiation) and the other in the state of perhaps lady #2.
And you know I'll tell you all about it because I am learning that what filter I had is just wearing away.
On top of the embarassing questions they talk about things like body odor and pimples. Can't leave those out.
Bwahahaha! A little story for you. Once when I was little, my mom and I were browsing thru a jewelry store when I spotted an Italian horn pendant like this.
I pointed and very loudly announced Sperm!
And then we left the store.
Apparently it's also called Cornicello and is some type of protectional charm. I still think it looks like a sperm.
I'm telling you, the best parts aren't even posted.
I'm so glad I don't have to think about these things for a long, long time. If you do, I'd be happy to send you over some more visual aids. Heh.
