My 9 yo son has been talking non stop about marriage lately. He is trying to decide who he is going to marry. Today it was my friend, who is very much married and has a family. I reminded Ashton that she was already married so then he told me he is going to marry his substitute teacher. Most of his choices are older but he did mention a few 3rd grade friends. It all started when dh and I went to a wedding a few months ago and we were talking about it with the kids since was their cousin. Then, his OT got engaged and she was talking about that with me. Now it's all he talks about, well not all but he is talking about it a lot and asking a lot of questions..questions about men and woman. I told dh that it is time for us to start talking about the birds and the bees with him.. What do you think? Any suggestions on when and how we start talking about this sort of thing?
