The Talk

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.

    eh oh…it’s really awkward, isn’t it? I’m glad he asked this at home and not right in the public places.

      Hah he’s actually shouted “penis” in public before so I’m a little used to getting embarrassed publicly

    LOLOL. I wonder if Truett will try to fish for more information from other kids in school.

      I wouldn’t be surprised.. hopefully he gets the right information though

    Maybe you can ask him why he is asking. If he asks again. :)

      I doubt it will deter him, he’s very persistent that way

    The awkward sex talk has already started? You sure that he’s going to let you and daddy off the topic so soon?

      We’re going for distraction for now. Wait till Kirsten joins in and we’ll have to do like a panel discussion with both kids. Not looking forward to it!

    Wow, I am so unprepared for That Talk.
    I heard from a Mum friend whose son is the same age as my daughter (6) that he recently asked her some quite specific questions, and that she had to give a simple explanation of the mechanics of sex. Her son was apparently horrified and announced on the spot that he was never getting married! :)

      Hahahaahha that’s hilarious. Was it a verbal explanation or did it come with one of those kid-friendly illustrations?
