Kids these days...

Last night, I took the boys to Wal-Mart to spend some birthday money.

On the way home, we got to chit-chatting.

Avery made a comment that I "owed him" something, or other.

I jokingly said, "I don't owe you anything. I built you. I gestated you for nine months...I think you owe me!"

Thus, opening the door, to a portion of THE talk.

Ave: Yeah, but, didn't dad help make me, too.

Me: Technically, yes. But, I did all the dirty work. I had to carry you around and grow you from two tiny little cells into a big, fat baby.

Ave: Really?!

Me: Yup. It starts with a tiny sperm cell from a man, and a tiny egg from a woman. Together, they grow and grow and grow, to make a baby.

*At this point in the conversation, I realize...I'm in deep. Really.Really.Deep.*

Ave: So, can they just take those two cells, put them together, and grow a baby outside of a woman?

Me: No, but they can put the cells together outside of a woman, make sure they start growing, then put them inside a woman. It's called In Vitro Fertilization.

Ave: Is that what you did?

Me: No. That's for people who can't get pregnant on their own. They can't do it the old fashioned way.

*I brace myself, here it comes...*

Ave: What's the old fashioned way?

*I decide to spell, since little brother is in the back seat, and I do not need him telling his teacher how the baby got into her tummy!*

Me: S.E.X.

*The boy loses it, and starts laughing maniacally, and nervously.*


Me: No. Actually, that's how you got in there.

Ave: OH.MY.GAWD!! OK.OK.OK. No more.

Me: you even know what S.E.X is?

Ave: No. Not really. But, I'll just Google it!

Me: NO! DO NOT Google it!

Ave: Why?

*Not really wanting to explain S.E.X and P.O.R.N to my ten year old child, I lie*

Me: Well. Uh. Because. Because. Uh. You can't search that on Google. They don't have that kinda stuff on there. Any questions you have, please ask us. We'll tell you the truth. JUST.DON'T.GOOGLE.IT!!

*Note to self: Disconnect internet service!*

Oh that is too funny! I have found myself in the begging of that conversation several times & I always end up throwing in "Hey, look out the window, did you see that?!? Wow, that was cool" or something like that and it usually distracts them for long enough for them to forget about it.

My kids are so not hooked up to the internet, not without me.
