一无所知,如何教女?

作者: 黄冈翻译公司  发布时间:2017-05-24 17:08:33  点击率:

 小孩子的眼中总是充满了好奇和疑问。那些对成人来说已经麻木、不屑的问题对他们来说可都是新鲜有趣的。这是他们探索和了解自己所生活的世界的方式,家长们自然是绞尽脑汁,希望用最好的方式给他们正确的引导,毕竟一个鲜活的小生命,就这样来到人间,他们是父母一份甜蜜的责任,也是一张充满无限可能的美丽的图景。iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Circuitous conversations, they went something like this: “Let’s try to have a kid – but we’ll need a new car – we can’t afford that – so we’ll just work a little longer – but if I had another degree surely I’d make more money – yeah, let’s wait to finish school – but then I’ll be too old – fine, let’s try to have a kid – but…”iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

On the evening in question, her dad declared: “Seriously, will there ever be a good time?” Locked in an embrace that would distract him from that question, I never did voice the fear that hovered above my right ear: What if we raise her wrong?iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I know so little about everything. Well, at least everything that is important to raising a child right.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I Know Nothing About Life After DeathiJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

“There are over 300 bones in a kid’s body,” I read in our daughter’s scholastic science book. Skulls are filled with brains, vertebrae are stretched along the spinal cord, and the femur is covered by muscle and skin.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

“So, what do you call it when all the bones are put together?” I quizzed, just for fun.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

“A skeleton! That’s what you find in a grave, right?”iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I nodded, suddenly wary.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

“Would we find your grandma’s skeleton if we dug her up?”iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I searched the room for an answer. “Honey, my grandma wasn’t buried. She was – ah – she was cremated, meaning …” Man, my throat was dry. “Her body was burned up – in a special oven.”iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

The child’s shocked eyes stared into mine unrelentingly. “In an oven? Why would they burn her?”iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

“Remember, when people are dead they don’t feel anything, right? So I guess some people would rather their body get burned instead of – [oh God] – be eaten by bugs?”iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I Know Nothing About the Natural OrderiJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Walking home from the bus stop with her father and a friend, she spotted the block’s feral cat taunting a mouse.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

As she bent to see how the shivering creature was faring, her friend’s large winter boot crashed forward. Before they could stop him, he did it again. With a quiet pop, the small body ruptured and its soft tissue melted pink in the snow.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

She refused to be comforted even as her dad soothed, “The mouse was almost dead, love. The cat would have killed it.”iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

“But it’d have been better if the cat had killed it.”iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I Know Nothing About Finding –or Making –LoveiJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

She was 5 when I gave birth to her brother. As my belly grew, it didn’t take long for her to ask how the sibling in my tummy would escape. Thank God for the Internet.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Within seconds my phone had conjured up a computer-generated video of a baby descending through the birth canal. Over the clinical narrator’s voice, I perkily editorialized: “Isn’t it amazing how girls’ bodies are made to open up and give birth? Just a miracle, don’t you think?”iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

At first I didn’t notice the tears, strangely unaccompanied by sound, flowing down her cherub cheeks.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

“Honey, what’s wrong?”iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

“But I don’t want to have a baby,” she whispered.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Hastily, I tried to explain. “Just because your body can have babies doesn’t mean you will have them. It’s totally your choice.”iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

“Really? But how do I choose to have a baby?”iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

As her dad watched the scene with an eyebrow cocked, I struggled for something better than: “Trust me.”iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I Know Nothing About Letting GoiJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

The day I’d anticipated and dreaded for five years finally arrived. We stood in the rain that smelled of frost and waved good-bye. Her nose was a flat triangle pressed against the greasy window of a yellow school bus driven by a stranger.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

That morning, we hid our anxiety behind smiles that were too broad and voices that were especially loud. We comforted ourselves with the knowledge that we’d prepared her as best as we could. We’d warned her of Stranger Danger. We’d talked about privacy and modesty, and how friends don’t keep secrets. I’d told her of words that could get her in trouble if spoken out loud. She could recite her address, phone number and full name.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

We returned that afternoon and waited as kids dribbled out of the bus. Our baby reached the top step, and on seeing us she grinned, leaped to the curb and raced to her dad.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

With the dexterity of a martial artist, she landed a karate chop squarely to his groin.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

We stood stunned. This is what she’d learn in kindergarten.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I Know Nothing About Being PreparediJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

She owes her existence to that question: “Will there ever be a good time?”iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

It was a topic never concluded as, that evening, hot pulse turned dust, turned atom, turned cell, turned into lungs, limbs and a beating heart.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

She entered the world as a salmon erupts from crystal falls – breathless, then gasping.iJ9黄冈翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司
