Last week I posted about being on the fence as far as the boys school situation. Well several things have happened since then.
First was progress reports, all three boys have straight A's. I am super proud of them all.
The second thing has my mind blown. Also not sure I am having sex again until my kids are in college.
Lately I have caught the boys whispering about sex. And quickly put a stop to it.
I am an extremely open person about sex and never really worried about talking to the boys about it, but I really wasn't ready to have the "talk" with them yet.
The other day one of the boys was eating a popcile and said, "I am totally having sex with this". I almost fell out of my chair.
After composing myself I demanded to know where he would have gotten such an idea...blank stare...He swore he didn't know where it came from.
I could delay no more, time to talk to them all. The baby is only five and really didn't think he was old enough, but my hand was forced. So I ask them what sex is...they all blush and say they know, but can't say it because it's too gross.
So I break it down. Using all the proper words and all.
And the baby looks at me and says, "yeah I know, they get naked, kiss, sometime a lady kisses a man's penis, then he puts it in her vagina". I wanted to cry. WHY DOES MY BABY KNOW THIS??
We limit their tv. We are careful what we watch when they are up. We keep our relations in the bedroom. He just came from a very conservative pre-k. I am at a loss. At first I assume the 2nd grader is hearing it from friends and sharing. But NOPE.
Turns out it's from the kindergartner's class! It is the same "friend" who has exposed himself to the class twice this year, who is sharing all this info. He also taught my son the word coochie. I will be calling the teacher on Tuesday. I hate to be "that" mom, but I don't want my kids near this one. I kinda thought he was making up the kid stripping in class, since the teacher never sent a note home or anything, but he sticks to that story and now this...
After I talked to the boys about the importance of NOT telling their friends about this info, because not all mommies want their kids to know. And that sex is for adults, little kids should not be talking about it. And of course, if they ever have a question to ask me or daddy.
And just when I think this is over for now, kid #2 looks at me and says, "SO THAT'S WHAT YOU AND DAD WERE DOING WHEN I WALKED IN YOUR ROOM THAT TIME???!?!?"
And then I died.
*Wanted to add, I am not making light of this, I am heartbroken that my sons' innocence has been shattered. But a little comedy is how I survive.
