Can We Wait Until You Can Read to Discuss Sex?

I've been busy. Really busy. Sorry about the spotty posting and blog reading. I will catch up this weekend, and my life should level out a little bit.

Today, while jumping in the driver's seat, I heard this from the backseat:

Twelve year old: "Tell Mom what you just asked me."

Five year old: "Mom, what's 'having sex?'

"What???!!"

"I said, what's 'having sex?'"

"Where on earth did you hear this, Jacob [meaningfully glaring at older children]??"

"From you."

"What?! When?"

"When you couldn't find your cell phone. You said, 'oh for havin' sex.'"

"Heh heh. Sweetie. Yes I did. I said OH FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE."

OH, would you believe I once said "What's a duck?!" rather loudly in traffic when I got cut off? There happened to be a small boy in the back seat who wanted to know what THAT meant!

Beth said...

That makes me chuckle!

this might just be the codeine talking after the wisdom teeth getting pulled, but what the heck, let's get married

Life As I Know It said...

Phew. I would have had to pick my jaw up off the floor if my 5 year old asked that.

Missy said...

oh, that could have been much much more awkward and uncomfortable. Funny though :)

Sophie's Mom said...

Priceless! :) That question will come soon enough, won't it?

Nancy said...

12 year old was probably bursting inside waiting for your answer.

From the mouths of babes!

That is classic! Hmm, he may have just unintentionally coined a fun new saying though (well, if said out of the earshot of children).

What the fudge are you letting that kid watch on t.v. that sex is the first thing that comes to mind?

Madame Queen said...

That was the funniest thing I've heard lately.

ha ha ha ha ha!

i would much rather be having sex than looking for my cell phone, too

Tootsie Farklepants said...

Whew. Bullet dodged!

Anna said...

At least you didn't say where the EFF is that cell phone. Would have been harder to explain!

AnotherMomCreation said...

You dodged a bullet that time.... you can only convince them once in a while you said something totally different. Like when I flipped off some guy who cut me off and nearly killed the 3 of us.... my 7yr old ask me what I did... so I told her I pointed at him.... and showed her with my index finger..

I don't think she believed me.

Kimmykay said...

Ok, now that had me sweating bullets for you! LOL.

Laura McIntyre said...

LOL Guess you avoided that one for the time being, love misunderstandings

Cammie said...

That is HILARIOUS!!!!
