a startling lesson

Okay so I got a sex ed lesson this week from my almost 5 year old. I know at this age kids are extremely interested in their bodies and the differences in them and the opposite sex. I think with boys...they are from birth to the grave....but I digress.

He called me into the bathroom and said, "hey mom....um you know my hump?" (He calls his nads his hump, and I've never told him any other term) I nodded my head. He asked, "do you know it's a bucket of skin that holds my pee?" I raised my eyebrows and said, "No, I didn't know that." Okay...at this point I'm not going to correct him. I'm just gonna let him figure some stuff out on his own until "THE" talk comes at a later date.

He got excited and kept going, "And you know what?"
"What?"
"When I'm older...I'll have hair on it too!"

I almost fell to the floor at this one!
"Ooooh really? Where did you hear that?"
"Well I dunno know. I already do have little hairs on it, so I guess I'll have more when I get big."
"I guess so..."

I shook my head and left the room to tell my mom what he just said. I was laughing but kinda in shock that he put that together. She started giggling and asked, "Well you know what he told me last week don't you?"
"No telling..."
"He said he had a pee pee, but went on to explain to me that his daddy had a really biiig pee pee."

I don't think I've laughed so hard in a long time. I at that point called my husband to tell him the good news.
