Do you ever get stuck on stupid? Deer in The Headlight look?

Its rush hour at our house, grand Central Station: TV on, phone beepin or blinking, your multi tasking, cooking dinner, writing the grocery list, checking homework, making sure the dog ate, cleaning up, your thoughts are a million miles away then (BAM) all of a sudden your seven your old asks; what is gay or what is sex?screeeeech, what? huh? (the dumb look now sets in) now the deer caught in the headlights, finally stuck on stupid...

My first question, how,who huh? He said he heard about it in school...well, alrighty-then. We sit and have our talk (won't go into details about the talk)
It's just that he always catches me off guard. YIKES!

  • You know, the bright side of this is that your son has no qualms coming to you with questions. ;)

  • My son does tend to drop big questions at really random times! haha Just have to be the parent that is "always prepared" like a boy scout and taking it all in stride.

  • Wow, I probably would have sent him to talk to his dad, lol. My husband and I agreed that when the time comes to talk about any of that I would deal with the girls, nd he would deal with the boys. So far we only have one boy though, lol. And we discussed that before we had him, so I get nervous now thinking about what he might come up with to tell him lol. He'd probably hand him a pack of condoms and say, go get em son. Lol, thats what my SIL jokes about anyways. But hope your talk went well.. O_o lol
