Chad" My friend, William's crab is mating."
Me:(I was kind of caught of guard by this one) "What do you mean by "mating"?"
Chad: "Well the crab swings it's arm above it's head and the girl thinks he is attractive."
Me: (trying to draw out more from him and trying not laugh at the visual of some female thinking a guy is cute by his arm swing) "Yeah, but what is mating?"
Chad: "They make babies." Said so matter of fact!
Me:(GREAT! Did we wait too long to talk about the birds and the bees?) "Dooooo you know HOW they make babies?"
Me:(Pheeeeew! But I have to ask) "Do you WANT to know."
Chad: (he looks kind of uncomfortable and ready to leave by this point...he hates long talks and knows that this one is gonna be a long one) "Ummmmm...Not until 5th grade!"
Then he is on his merry little way and I am done sweating because my little kid still wants to be a little kid...well at least for a little while longer! I have NOT missed my opportunity as a parent to tell him about the birds and the bees, but I better get to it soon before he hears it from some other kid!
