We are pretty open about bodies and body parts; the kids and I. I want/wanted to have them grow up being comfortable with what things are and having the knowledge they needed to combat information learned at school, etc, and just being comfortable talking about things. We haven't gotten into much of the birds and bees stuff yet. I knew that with Olivia I would need to start soon. She's at a good age for that, and I know how a lot of the kids in our district are, and how "mature" or should I say knowledgable many are in that area at a very young age. It saddens me, and some of what I've heard sickens me, so I wanted to make sure Olivia had good information at a young age.
Well, I got beat out by the playground.
Yesterday Olivia asked what sex was.
Two kids on the playground were talking about Titanic and one asked what they were doing in the car. Do you remember that scene? Steamy windows, etc etc etc. Of course someone knew and said they were having sex. Great. So she asked me. I am glad she asked. Of course she has no idea what she asked. :)
I will be talking to her soon. For now I said it was something that adults do when they are married and that I would talk to her more about it when we had more time. A car ride isn't very conducive to a heart to heart. And luckily the boys weren't in the car because Braeden would've been all over that! Goodness!
