Let me tell you bout the birds and the bees....

So much to catch up on after such a long blog hiatus. Now we're ready for some serious blogging.....If by serious you mean some good Carson conversations that a doting mom wants to have recorded. I'll get more up soon, but i'm currently in mourning of my camera that has been missing for a couple weeks, and I swear it's still going to be found and I have lots of pics to download.

Let me preface with a sidenote: when Carson's mind starts churning on a particular subject, it normally sticks for a while, and revolves into new, but related topics. Well curious George meet sex education. Really, I wasn't expecting the latest chain to hit for a loooong while. Actually it would be fine to touch the surface and probably normal, but seeing as Carson doesn't let up when he knows you're not giving the real answer, this has been a fun run!
Carson: "Why don't Nathan & Janelle have a baby?"
me: "I don't know, you'd have to ask them."
Carson: "Are they going to go to the store and buy one?" "do they come in a box?"
me: "Nope, babies come from Heavenly Father, and mommies have them."
At that point the conversation was fortunately diverted in the direction of what became a couple week obsession of all details related to heaven....better than the alternative, right?
Then a couple weeks ago, Carson became curious about wives...
Carson "Hey dad, will you sleep with me tonight?"
Dad " No I'm going to sleep with mom."
Carson "Why?
Dad "Because she's my wife"
Carson "Well how do I find a wife?"
Dad "When you get older, maybe you'll find one at college or something."
Carson "Well what should I name her"
Dad "She'll probably already have a name, that her mom and dad gave her"
Carson "Why did you name mom Brooke?"
Well these are all good questions, entertaining, and all, but last week, Carson wanted to go a little further...

Carson "Hey, how do you get preg-a-nant?"
At this point I'd like to recommend you send your kids to our friend Eric who was there to answer....."Well Carson, when a mommy and daddy love each other, they fit together like a jigsaw puzzle." Thanks Eric!!! This was followed by lots of laughing, and a persistant Carson for a real answer. We've gone through all the mumbo jumbo of babies come from heaven, you have babies when you get married, etc. etc. etc. Carson somehow knows there's more to it, but for some reasons the birds and the bees and 3 yr. olds just don't mesh.

Oh wow....I thought explaining the finer points of life to my seven year old was early...but hey, inquiring minds want to know!

I had tears in my eyes hearing good ol "Uncle Eric" tell Carson about the jigsaw puzzle. I loved hearing Carson asking, "What's so funny? Why are you laughing???" Such a cute, curious boy!

I would love to be a fly on the wall in your house, I have yet to witness all of the questions. Hopefully one day I will. He is too funny.

3-year-olds kill me! Kylie has become quite curious about anatomy lately. It probably won't be long until she wants to know more . . .
