Convos with Kids #247365711: Birds & Bees

Part 1:

Lady J: Mom, I know a fertilized egg hatches into a chicken and an unfertilized egg is the kind we eat. But, how does the egg become fertilized?

Me: 😳 

{side note: I have no idea how this schtuff works with birds…mental note: ask SIRI…} 


Part 2:

Lady J: Mom, I think I’m ready for a sleepover. 

Me: That’s great! I’ll see if we can set one up!

J: Great! (She rattles off a list of friends and cousins she’d like to have over.) Also, what about _______? Can I have a sleepover with HIM?

{Side note: _______ = her boyfriend}

Me: Um, no. Boys and girls don’t usually have sleepovers together. 

J: So is that a rule you and Daddy made up?

Me: I think it’s just a general parenting rule. But I really don’t know. I’ve never thought about it. It’s just how it is. 

J: Why?

Me: I. Don’t. Know? Hmmmm, I’ll ask some other parents and see what they say. 

J: Wouldn’t it be easier if there was a rule book?

Me: You have no idea…

Side note: please provide parenting feedback on either or both conversations. Inquiring minds want to know…

PS: Do NOT mention this to Mr. TheKing. He does not to lose what’s left of his hair…
