The Birds and the Bees

Warning: This includes some anatomically correct language.  Read on at your own risk.

Matthew: "Mom, how do babies come?"
Me:  "From their mommies' tummies."
Matthew:  "No, I mean like how does a mommy and daddy get a baby to come here?"
Me:  (Still recovering from our "No, Heavenly Father didn't forget to give girls penises" conversation from this morning)  "Uhhhhh... Did you have punch at preschool today?  You have a punch mustache."
Matthew:  "Yes and we had Halloween pretzels and fruit roll-ups.  And at preschool we talked about...."
Phew, dodged that one for another 24 hours.

What a blessing and curse to have such a smart little boy.

Sheesh, I can't beleive he's asking those questions...I don't know how I would handle that one! The only thing I've had to deal with is finding Spencer & his buddy naked from the waist down trying to hit each other's dingies with swords...that was awkward.

I am glad you are going through that first, when Grace starts asking questions I am calling you for advice.

Good thing the diversion technique still works! Use it as long as you can.

I love stories about your boys! I just wish I got to see them more often. I thought the one about Matthew drawing a circle through James and posting it on the dishwasher was especially funny :)

Nice method, I'll have to use this one in the future. Matthew is such a smartie, you better be ready for round 2 sometime soon.
