So we’re driving to school the other day and one of the DJ’s says something about oral sex. I immediately look over to Moomoo and he has this stupid grin on his face. He looks at me and says’
‘What does oral mean’ – phew, oh hang on not so good…
‘It’s means talking, people talking about sex.’ – quick look away, change the subject, jump out of the car – anything to avoid any further questions.
See Moomoo is 10 years old and he’s getting a bit curious about thing’s. I found a picture of Kim Kardashian in his room not long ago – I know, it could’ve been anyone else but a Kardashian. Much to my relief, when I saw the picture again he had glued and alien’s head on it. He also made a comment on a ladies shirt one day when we were shopping – nice colour he was saying – translation:’ OMG did you see those boobs Mum they were huge’.
It’s also got me thinking. At what age do you do ‘The Talk’? I ask because I’m dreading it. His world nearly collapsed when I told him the horrible truth about the Tooth Fairy – imagine when he hears that ‘no you didn’t come out of my belly button’ – worlds will collide. When I was given ‘The Talk’, all I remember is the pictures out of the ‘Where Did I Come From’ book – cartoon swimmers! Thankfully this book is still in publication so it looks like another generation is going to get the pleasure of a step by step cartoon guide to sex – hey, if it ain’t broke!
