That is the question my 8 year old son asked me the other night. We were sitting in the living room watching Chopped and during a commercial he turned and asked. I told him to make babies and I could just see the wheels turning in his little brain. My sister is 5 months pregnant and we are very close to them. Sure enough, when we saw her the next day he just kept looking at her. It was the funniest thing ever.

That is a good answer since his aunt is expecting.  Does he know the mechanics of it/

No, although we have had many interesting conversations about babies and pregnancy we haven't gotten to the mechanics. (Thank God!)

Never lie.  To get pregnant isn't the only reason.  The more open you are about sex the better.

I told my my 9 year old because it feels good. She cringed and said " Yuck! " I told her to hold that thought for another 15 years :)

im surprised at 8 he has no idea the mechanics of it atb least a bit.. kids seem to be  learbing more & more & an ealirer age..

 my ds1 is 5 & he doesnt know the word " sex" yet but he did ask how babies get in mommys bellies.. i said daddy puts his love inside mommy &  the baby grows in there.. =/  im not sure if i dodged it or if it was age appropiate..  he didnt ask more & seemed satified so i assume it was enough.. i  tend to think  answer only as much as they ask at young ages.. for now my almost 5 yr old  would not be old enough imo to know his daddy puts his penis inside mommy.. i think you handled it good.
