Sprout Meets Puberty.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I ordered a few birthday presents online for Sprout. One of them was a book I'd been wanting to turn him on to for quite some time now: Michael Pollan's The Botany of Desire.

That is not what I received.

Care to guess what they sent to me? I'll give you a hint: it's also all about growing.

And the wildly inappropriate winner is:

The Care & Keeping of You: The Body Book for Girls.

I briefly toyed with the notion of giving it to him as a gag gift but ultimately decided that nah -- that was just too weird. And definitely not "weird" in a good way.
