My 3 year-old son asked my husband a question the other day before bedtime. My husband usually tucks him in to bed and before he goes to sleep, they cuddle on the bed and chat for a bit.
My husband told me about this conversation that they had the other night:
J: Daddy, who bought J?
D: What do you mean who bought J?
J: Who bought me?
D: Oh, we didn’t buy J!
J: You didn’t?
D: No, we made J.
J: How did you make J?
I cannot help but laugh at that. I wonder when is an appropriate age to tell children about the birds and the bees. The joys of parenting!
