I believe in being open and honest with sex and sexuality with my children in order for them to grow up and have healthy sexual relationships.
Today my 4 yr old son blindsided me with the age-old question "where do babies come from?". I told him "well from mommys uterus", he than asked "do I have a uterus", I said "no only girls", I could see the wheels turning in his little brain as he began to ask " well, how do they get in there?", I said "mommy's and daddy's put them in there", he said "how", I told him "by loving eachother".
He seemed a little confused and walked away. Therefore, my question is do you think I handle this well enough? How would you have answered the questions? I do not want to confuse him but I do not see it necessary to get into the nitty-gritty at 4 yrs old.
