So far, we’ve managed to get away with not having the “Where Babies Come From” discussion, or what we like to call the awkward sex talk. The kids seemed content to know that there’s a baby in my uterus and didn’t really care much for where he came from.
That all changed today.
I was playing a game with Truett and he suddenly asked the big question.
“Mommy, how did baby Finn get inside your stomach?”
That totally caught me off guard so I said the only thing I could think of. “Go ask daddy.”
The husband was unfazed and he was all “Because I had sex with mommy, that’s how.”
Tru: Is it like magic?
Husband: Yes, sort of like magic. It’s called a miracle.
Tru: Oh, ok.
Several minutes later, Tru turned to me and asked “How to have sex?”
Me: Well, it’s when daddy and mommy love each other very much, and um…um…ok so there’s this egg in mommy’s uterus and this other thing called sperm. When they meet, something special happens and we get a baby.
Tru: You show me how.
Me: What? Absolutely not. One day when you’re big, you’ll understand how it all works. For now, let’s just go with the miracle egg theory ok.
I have a feeling this conversation is so not over.
