So, tonight the boys and I went to see the movie African Cats. (along the same line as Earth). It was awesome and they did great...all ages & stages considered.
Afterwards, in the bathroom, W says to me, "I just don't understand how I got here." After repeating that to me twice, I replied,
"Do you mean, how you were made?"
"Yeah, how I was made."
Okay....here we go. Mr. 5yrs old wondering about the great mysteries of life!
So, off we go to Chapters and buy a book. Much better to read a book and answer questions than try to explain ourselves. In the Life Lessons section for ages 3-8 I found a little book that explains how babies are made. It's pretty good. A little funny. "No nonsense with illustrations."
I saved an important section for you. The Making Love section. I just couldn't do it. He's 5!
Bodies, sperm, eggs, babies...okay, but not the wriggling and jiggling and special huggin' parts?! Not yet!
Warner's biggest concern after reading the book, which he quite liked,...armpit hair. He doesn't want armpit hair. LOL! Crack me up!
Brace yourself honey. The jig is up. No body is run over by a lawn mower, there is no stork, he was not found in a saloon, and now he thinks you guys have tadpoles in your bodies and women are like chickens minus feathers, but with armpit hair and eggs. :)
Can't wait for you to come home and for you and W to continue with this lesson!
PS: Won't my favorite husband be pleased that I posted this?! It was just too much too past it up!;)
