We did the ‘My Body is a Temple’ singing time yesterday and it went really well (you can find it here:http://denleymusic.com/primaryblog/?p=172)
One of the pictures had someone in the bath with other cleaning items such as tissues, toilet paper, soap, shampoo, a hairbrush and comb, a hairdryer and what looked like a shaver/razor. The child who had picked the picture asked what it was, so I explained that it was a razor and pointed out that our male teachers in Primary would use one of these, or something like it to shave the hair off their face. “Oh okay”, that made sense.
Then a little voice from the second row pipes up “And sometimes Mummies use them to shave the hair off their legs”.
Amidst the giggles and stiffled laughter from the teachers I agreed whole heartedly with this young person that we Mummies do indeed do that “and now it’s time to move on”.
