Mommy? What is that?


And how do/would YOU answer when you realize your 3.5 year old boy is pointing to the tampon dispensing machine in the ladies public washroom?

I was seriously caught off guard. If you know me, I do not get ruffled easily at all. I sorta stumbled, mumbled and answered something very quickly about 'for grown up ladies only' and we left in a flash. His answer:

"So when I get to be a grown-up lady, I can use it?"

"Yes dear."

Sigh.

Ah, one of the questions I dread. At least I know the answer to give now ;)

Again so cute,

We have not started getting the "What's that?" questions yet, but our time will come.

Pretty good answers

By the time I got to my third boy, I could just answer "tampons" in a nonchalant voice.

Have enough kids, and eventually you can answer any question in public.

Well, um, I'm glad I have girls so the explanation is a little easier :)

OK, so, today? I'm in the bathroom, didn't flush it because I was getting into the shower. Ben comes in to go pee, flips open the lid and goes "uuuuuggh! gross! what's that?" And I said casually, "it's just poop," and he said, "red poop?"

And I just didn't answer, and he went away. Thank God.
