The Birds And The Bees – Kids Logic Part 39

A few short weeks ago, I wrote a guest post on A Momma’s View, about the impending conversations with Lil Man… Yes that age has now come, where we need to start to think about talking Puberty… and of course the questions will be raised, that lead to the Birds and The Bees!

birds n beesWell, it’s started! I believe the puberty talk is starting next week, but there have been a few taster sessions already…

He tells me he knows the word ‘vagina, hee hee hee’!

He’s been asking around the family…. Daddy says “Hmmm, the birds and the bees… we’ll chat about that later son!”

He asked one uncle “What are the Birds and The Bees?” He was told “The birds fly, the bees sting, simple!”

The other uncle, my brother said “Ahem, I think that’s a conversation you and your daddy need to have!”

Today, he said to me, “Mummy, why does the Queen call her special jewels, The Crown Jewels, after men’s privates??”

I explained that no, that is a little the wrong way round, and that the Crown Jewels are very precious, and so are a man’s bits… so that is why they are named after the Queen’s jewels, “because, you know, they are an important part of your body, if they got hurt, you might not be able to have children…” Ooops! Why did I say that??!! At this stage, willies are not for baby making, or pleasure of any sort! They are the means to go toilet!

So says Lil Man ” But mummy, that’s silly, what do mans privates have to do with babies? Men don’t have babies!”

Then, not to be left out Lil Princess starts ” Yeah mummy, when I was born, there was no willies, were there?”

I left the room sharpish, time to change the subject and it was bath time.

Lil Man pipes up “The other class were drawing penises and boobies! Hee Hee Hee! And vaginas! You know, that’s like your crown jewels, isn’t it!”

I just tried to ignore the conversation!

Dear God!Β  Help me!!!! this next couple of weeks are going to be fun!!!!!

    Oh no! I think I am up for that soon! My son just knows about our monthly visitor. I had to tell him because one time I bought pads in front of him. He asked me why I was buying diapers for myself and I explained it. I’m going to read your post!

    πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I so feel with you, Ritu! OMG! I so recall those days. I see you doing your best and finding simplifying answers which make everything just worse. My middle son was like this. That discussion is hysterical and I see a desperate Ritu leaving the room and knowing when she is back the questions are even more….
