Rethinking Motherhood

by Marinka on March 14, 2010

So it’s the weekend and I’m rethinking my approach the parenthood. Particularly the whole “I gave birth to you, take it from here” part. Because after the whole nuts/balls fiasco, I found that Young Ladrinka ran the following Google searches:

Hot sexy girls
You tube farteng hippos
Youtube farting hippos

and came up with this image


I had a talk with Young Ladrinka that went something like this:

“Did you Google hot sexy girls?”
“Wow, mom, you’re smart! How did you know?”
“Moms always know. Why did you Google it?”
“If moms always know, why are you asking me?”
“This is no time to be a smart guy.”
“Ok! Because I wanted to see. I was curious.”
“Ok, Young Ladrinka, there is nothing wrong with being curious. But the internet contains many things that are not appropriate for children. They may be scary and confusing. And they may even be fake. It would be better if you came to dad or me if you had any questions and not Google.”
“I’m serious.”
“I’m sorry.”
“You will have to be punished, you know.”
“I know.”
“I am banning you from the computer for two days.”
“Ok. Please don’t tell dad.”
“And I will tell dad.”
“Ok. Please don’t give me ice cream.”
“And I will gi- hey, what did I just say about being smart?”

* * *
Then I emailed Husbandrinka to tell him about what happened and that Young Ladrinka is banned from the computer.

Husbandrinka’s response is “that’s perfectly normal.”

Yes. If you’re a junior Larry Flynt.

Remind me never to click on these types of links again! Ewwww!


Jeanne March 14, 2010 at 8:20 am

I wish I hadn’t clicked on the link. At least, not before breakfast.


Mrs. March 14, 2010 at 9:04 am

That was to funny. Made my Sunday morning


Stace March 14, 2010 at 9:19 am

LOL I just had this conversation with MY son…except he had googled “blonde lesbians” *rolls eyes*.


March 14, 2010 at 9:39 am

eeek. my son is not there yet (he’s still in the “mommy, can i marry you?” phase), but i’m not sure how i’ll handle it when he gets there. i’m thinking, isolated mountain top? with yaks? oh, wait, yaks may be a problem too. crap.


Braja March 14, 2010 at 10:10 am

Ouch. How do you sit DOWN on that???
I think if he keeps stumbling across images like that in his searches, he’ll turn out fine.
Or gay.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that….


Jonathan March 14, 2010 at 6:37 pm

He is too funny! I am making that picture my screensaver.


reiven March 14, 2010 at 8:02 pm

you missed the perfect opportunity to tell him you are momniscient! But I’m sure there will be more. I love your blog!


MarathonMom March 14, 2010 at 8:06 pm

I’ll just remind you that Larry Flynt us a wealthy man.

considering I’m commenting via my husband’s work laptop, I may just have a related post myself this week.

Good news, your son doesn’t know how to privately browse. Even better news, he seems perfectly normal. I’ve always wanted to see a video of hippos farteng.


March 14, 2010 at 11:05 pm

Oh the things I get to look forward to now that I have a son… who looks just like his father. So yea, I’m pretty sure I know exactly what I have to look forward to – and I’m not looking forward to it.

BTW, on a more serious note, (wow that sounded cheesy) I think you are HILARIOUS, and I really enjoy your sense of humor. Anyway, I’m going to BlogHer and I’m looking forward to meeting you. Whew – glad I got that off my chest. Of course, I probably should have just sent that in a personal e-mail…

i think you should put that photo on your header.

1. I want your son.
2. I am quite disturbed that I clicked on that and saw what I did.


Robbin B March 15, 2010 at 12:06 pm

I am laughing w/you here in St. Louis. My son googled hot naked girls. I first asked my husband if that was something he typed in, he was offended that I didnt think he could come up w/something better than hot naked girls. So I had to approach my son and also tell his friends mom what they had been up to 😉



Bianca March 15, 2010 at 12:35 pm

Funny; boys will be boys, and its cute when their boys…when their men its a whole other matter


Laughing March 16, 2010 at 12:01 am

when i was that age and the internet was brand new (well, mid-90’s) and i didn’t know that there was such a thing as “history” but boy, my dad sure knew, i googled, umm… AOL’ed “dirty sex words” and then when the websites came up i was too scared to click on anything because all the sites said “you must be 18 and over to continue” and i really wasn’t into lying about my age so i got in trouble and didn’t even find out about dirty sex words.

My 8 yr old wanted to see some Halo 3 videos on his grandpa’s computer…I let him…when I walked by the room and PORN had pulled up! I didn’t freak because he was embarassed enough. It didn’t help that later on in the week Grandpa called to talk to youngest…he (grandpa) wanted to know how to pull the porn up! Yes, my family is sick.


Ari March 17, 2010 at 1:45 am

When I clicked to look at the picture in this post, my boyfriend sitting next to me looks at my screen and says, “Oh, yeah. Seen that.” Totally nonchalantly.


March 17, 2010 at 11:00 pm

I have a teen boy and refuse to share a computer with him. Reason? I lent him the laptop and found “Pikachu sex Ash mom” in the google.

Hell yes I clicked it.

OH MY GAWD, Marinka. What scares me most is I am actually *curious* to know what combination of those searches pulled up that photo. Also, I’m pretty sure the image is burned into my retinas, permanently.

You’ll be receiving a bill from my optometrist, shortly.
