The Birds & The Bees

The time has come and someone is very curious about sex!  Yes!  S-E-X!  Oh goodness!  I had a talk about sex with my ex-boyfriend's boys when they started to ask questions.  I was not a their parent so they found it easy to talk to me.  One of them even thanked me years later for being so open and supportive.  He said it helped him a lot.  That made me feel pretty good, that they had someone who they could talk to about something so sensitive to them.  I have to say, it was easier with them, than with Austin.

I know that he knows a lot more than he is willing to discuss but I will not push the issue.  I have found him trying to look up things on puberty, I will not go into details but I am sure you get the picture.  I talked to him last night and explained to him that he can ask me anything.  He does not need to be shy, or if he prefers to talk to his Dad, that's okay too.  We are only here to help him understand something that happens to everyone and there is no need to be embarrassed.  He did sit and talk to me a little bit and we did make some progress but he is not willing to talk to me about what he knows entirely.  I think that Dad might have better success.  Fingers crossed!

Everything seems to happen so fast!  Why do children have to grow up so quickly?  I feel like it was just yesterday I was changing Austin's diaper, now he is almost the same height as me and he is girl crazy!  I know all of you get it!

All the best!  *HUGS*

Just when you think you have one aspect of parenting figured out, the kids grow and throw a curve ball at you...good luck :)
