Yesterday Zack and Steve were riding in the car with the radio on. The announcer mentioned that a teacher had been arrested for having S-E-X with an underage student. Steve silently wondered if Zack had heard it. Seconds later:
Z: Daddy do you have sex with mommy?
S: Uhhhh.... (weakly) what? (stuttering) What is that? Do you know what that is?
Z: Yes, it's when you love each other
S: Oh yeah, right
End of conversation. Where does he get this stuff? They pick up so much more than we think! This reminded me of the other day when we were in the grocery store and he kept asking me what G-A-Y was. I ignored him but any experienced parent should know that the more you ignore your children the louder they get so he ended up shouting over and over again "What does gay mean?" as we practically ran out of the store. I ended up shoving some candy at him to get his mind off the question. I am just not ready for these conversations yet! I really thought I had a few years.
