I honestly don't know where the time has gone, but apparently, I blinked, and my kids are old enough to have the "sex talk" in school.  I know -- crazy, right??!!!!  Yep, the wonder of the ol' reproductive system has currently been the hot topic of fifth grade science class.  And my boy/girl twins could not be handling it more differently.

Now, my son is pretty much an open book on the subject.  He's more than happy to share each and every little detail he's soaked up, even in a crowded public scenario.  For example, recently, while at my daughter's soccer practice, he quite loudly revealed that, "the penis has to be straight in order to make a baby".  Why, yes, son, yes, it does.

My daughter, on the other hand, is not so open and willing to talk about the birds and the bees.  I haven't figured out if it's because she's too embarrassed or if it's because she thinks she already knows it all.  Whatever the case, she quickly changes the subject each and every time it's broached.

In fact, just the other night when she tried to pull her usual "I can't go to sleep" trick, my husband invited her over to the couch to tell us what types of questions she might have about sex and the things she's learning in science.  He figured it would either get her talking or get her back into bed.  And wouldn't you know that she marched right back up the stairs and into bed without even one little complaint!

Now granted, as a young girl, I, too, would have been MORTIFIED to talk to my dad about penises and vaginas.  Hell, I still have trouble talking about them with him! However, I'm hoping that, with time, my girl will start to open up more to me about any questions that she has.  Cause Lord knows I'd rather my kids get the answers from me than from the Big, Bad Internet…..
