See how innocent and yummy little mama looks? Then imagine my shock when at the Caterpillar’s eight week appointment I saw her recommended vaccination schedule, and at nine years of age it listed the HPV vaccine. Huh? What? Are nine-year-old’s really having sex? I mean, I know they are in some parts of the world, and either they have really bad parents or completely absent parents, right? But right here, in Collin County Texas, my baby’s pediatrician recommends getting vaccinated against an STD? I was flabbergasted when I saw that. It made me question when should Hubby and I begin the birds and the bees conversation with Gadget. Call me ignorant, but I thought we had more time. This was my cold splash in the face that we in fact do not have plenty of time to procrastinate regarding this matter. In fact, we need to be paying attention to what’s going on in the fourth and fifth grade at Gadget’s school. Have any of you gone through this already? Has was your talk? Have you given your daughter the HPV vaccine? Educate me, please!
