How did my son know? Did he just catch my vibe?

Did I mention something about not having talked with my sons about sexual awareness or something? I think my son is telepathic. You know what he asked me this afternoon? We were talking about when his birthday is as opposed to the doctor given due date.

I quote:

"Mommy, where do babies come out?", figuring this wasn't going to go far... "Well, they live in a special sack inside my tummy and come out a little hole when they are ready," I said, not really wanting to share any more information than the absolute necessary. "Yes, but where is that hole in your tummy?" Knowing now that a vague answer was not going to cut it and knowing he wouldn't give up without a tummy showing, but still fumbling, "Well, the baby lives in there until he's ready and then a special hole opens up and the baby squeezes out." "But Mommy where is the hole?" I'm thinking... why did I even bring up this subject of babies due dates? Why is this so uncomfortable? I mean I don't want to give him more information to work with than he really needs...

In the end I gave him a little more information than he had before, "It's somewhere near my bottom, but it's a special hole just for babies." He'll figure out the rest later when we get there. I'm not really ready to look forward to that. I guess I ought to prepare myself a little more. God really did make our bodies special (in a boyish or girlish sort of way, if you catch my drift) and I want him to realize and feel that same way... SOMEDAY!

LOL! That's really cute! Sometimes the simple answers just aren't enough for them. Sounds like you handled it really well!

How old is he? Have you heard of the "God's design for sex" series? I just recently purchased it and really like it a lot! It answers those questions in a very clear and tasteful way. I would highly recomend it. I must admit it was a bit difficult for me to read the first book to my boys (ages 5 and 3) but I think it was appropriate information to give them. The next book is supposed to be for ages 5-8 but my 5 year old is no where near ready for that one yet.

I just noticed that you are in Peru! My sister has been a missionary in Peru for the last few years and her husband is Peruvian. They are here in the states now though.

Oh, man, your son is a lot more curious than mine. Of course, maybe my son has asked that question but I didn't notice because my answer is easy...they come out of my tummy through an opening the doctor makes. lol. Hmmm...maybe there's an upside to this c-section thing. :-D
