Topics Covered at Lunch Today with the Children

1. How babies are made.
2. Why Mommies and Daddies sleep in the same bed. (I told them it was because Lee was warm.)
3. Why you can't marry your brother or sister. (Or first cousin.)
4. Circumcism: pros and cons. Discuss.

Previous Discussions that I never thought I'd have:
1. Do dead people celebrate Christmas?
2. If only your soul goes to heaven, how do you play with no eyes?
3. Why the new boy cat has to go to the vet. And, as a follow-up question, why he has to have those things cut off.

I really try to answer questions as matter-of-fact as I can. I have decided NOT to be embarrassed about things related to the common human experience, and want the kids to be able to talk to me about ANYTHING, and so far they DO.

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall during your conversation...hehe It would have given me pointers when Lainey starts asking those questions. She already said once 'I know you and daddy kiss in the bed when you think I am asleep' ha!
