Okay, I am going to warn you, this is a...well.....kind of sensitive subject. If you are one of those that leaves the room when mommies start talking about nursing and babies and such you'll want to leave now. I realize that maybe I shouldn't be sharing this but it's so funny I just have to.
Okay, having said that......
Today I didn't get a shower before the kids woke up so I hurried and jumped in when the kids were enjoying (mesmerized by) A Bug's Life. I took one of my speed showers and then just as I was wrapping the towel around me after getting out my four year old, Roo, walks into the bathroom. (I'll admit it, this isn't the first time he's seen me but I do try to stay modest around my kids)
Then he asks: "Do you have milk in those things?" I'll leave it up to you to decode the word "things." I didn't exactly want to encourage this conversation but I also want to be honest so I just told him
But that wasn't the end of it....
"Then why are they so big?"
"Well, that's just how Mommy's are."
"But mine are small."
"Yes, you're a boy."
"But we both have these." (and he proceeds to point to his "raisins" and then asks me to show him mine again to which I said no)
Then he says: "Can you put milk in there?"
"Because mommies bodies make milk on their own when they're going to have a baby."
"I want you to have a baby. I want a girl baby that doesn't talk."
"Okay, we'll see sweetie. "
And with that he was content to give me his little smug smile and I'm the coolest walk back to his room to play.
Only four years old and we're already having "the talk." I was laughing so hard after he strutted away. So what do you think? Did I give him too much info or not enough?
