This morning over breakfast, the following pleasant exchange took place between Wyatt, Mike and me.
Wyatt, who is soon to turn 5 years old, perkily asks, "Do you know how ladybugs have babies, Dad?"
Dad plays the fool saying, "How Wyatt, please tell us."
Wyatt pipes up with his response eagerly saying, "The mom and dad ladybugs go piggyback. Then they have babies."
Mike and I exchange a quick look of shock. Then I suppress my giggles, just barely stifling a snort laugh.
Mike, in total control of his laughter gazes at our son to see what will come next. Then he nods his head in agreement, "Yep your pretty much right about that."
At this point I have to ask, "Where did you learn that Wyatt? From Trevor or something?" Six year old cousin Trevor who lives next door is about all things relating to "the body" and quite curious about parts and reproduction...
Wyatt comes back saying, "No. We just know. Me and Adam just watched all the ladybugs and figured it out."
Mike looks at Wyatt with raised eyebrows saying somewhat sarcastically, "Oh really?"
Wyatt nodding his head emphatically says, "Yeah! We saw it."
So check that off my list of "To Do's" since I guess my boy has this whole sex ed thing in the bag. Let's just hope this ladybug girl does not show up at our house any time in the next 15 years...
