"The Talk"

I don't know about you but I did not know that I would be getting the where do babies come from question from my six year old.  Truthfully, that is not precisely the question that I got.  My son seemed to understand that the baby came from my stomach.  He either remembers when I was pregnant with the younger boy or maybe seeing my sister in law pregnant with my neice.  Anyway, the question I got was how does the doctor get the baby out of you?  Now I could have tried to put him off but he I think had visions of the doctor cutting me all up to get the baby out.  So calmly without using any pictures, I explained that I pushed the baby out.  Of course now he thinks I pooped (his word) the baby out.  I hope I did the right thing but it seemed to make sense to him and frankly I thought that since I had boys that should be the husbands job!  Anyway, being a reader I went looking for books on the subject.  Unbelieveably, most of the books claimed to be for the 6-8 or 7-9 age range.  I however did not think he was ready for the looking at body parts conversation so will be leaving sleeping dogs to lie at least until I get more follow up questions.

Thank you so much for the advice. I feel like all I think about is my job. I think you did what was best for your son. You didn't go into a lot of detail, and told him the truth.
