As any parent knows, you get asked some awkward questions by your children as they are growing up. Mostly we get our selves into this situations and are unprepared how to answer our kids, especially when they pipe up and ask you about something you said thinking your child was not listening. Yes this has happened a time or two in our house, and my husband and I usually manage to change the subject very quickly. Unless of course its something that truly needs to be explained.
Recently my son has been asking for a sibling, he really wants a little sister. We have told him a few times that unfortunately we will not be having any more kids. He brought it up again recently and asked me if I could get a baby in my tummy he really wants a little brother or sister. Well here is how the conversation went.
Me: sorry I can’t have any more babies
Madman: so how come you could only make one baby?
Me: well the things that make a baby don’t work anymore.(Really at this point I should have sent it over to my husband since its his parts that are no longer in service but I didn’t think I wanted to get to detailed on the birds and the bees yet)
Madman: what parts? Are there wires inside you? So you cut the blue wire and had me? Then there were no more wires?…
Me: yes exactly no more wires (At this point I am trying not to die laughing at how he is explaining it)
Madman: so is there a pink wire for the girl you can cut?
Me: ah, no there’s no more
Madman: can I see? Where are the wires? Are they in your butt?
At his point I can barely compose myself from what my son has just said so I passed it off to my husband and told him to take over. He just said sorry there are no more wires and there won’t be anymore babies and my son just dropped it after that. What the heck? Why did I get the inquisition and not my husband? Oh well it was quite amusing but it definitely makes me scared to have to the sex talk with my son. I think I’ll leave that one to my husband when the time comes.
