Sex 101

Every morning when Dante wakes up, he calls me from his room and asks if he can come lay in bed with me until it is time to get up. During the week, it's just the two of us and on the weekends (since Randy is off of work) it's the three of us, but this weekend Randy is away for 4 days in North Carolina.

This morning Dante woke up and called me and when I told him he could come in and lay he came in and told me he "wanted to talk".

Me: "Sure honey what do you want to talk about?"

Dante: "Mommy I want to talk about sex"

Me (taken aback since he is 3 1/2): "Ok, well what do you want to know about sex?"

Dante (frustrated): No, mom, I want to ask you something!"

Me: "Ok, what?"

Dante: "Will you have sex with Daddy when he comes home?"

Me: "Well, Dante, what is 'having sex'? Can you tell me?"

Dante (rolling his eyes, seriously, at 3 1/2 he rolls his eyes): "Sigh, mommy I told you already!"

Me: "Well, tell me again, I forgot."

Dante: "When you have sex with daddy you take off your shirt, lay him on the bed and give him a kiss. But not a regular kiss. You have to hold his face, like this" (cups his hands on his face)

Me: "So that's 'having sex'?"

Dante: "Yep"

Me: "Where did you learn this?"

Dante: "Watching The Office".

Now I would like to know, when are the sexy versions of The Office on? And how is my kid watching them and not me?

Hi, Alessia! Found your site via Moms Like Me. (I'm Leigh in St. Louis.) Just thought you'd like to know I snagged your Sagan, Darrow, & Stephen Jay Gould quotes to respond to my father's dumb e-mail about 'getting Christ back into the schools' (when will he learn!?!). Sorry this comment doesn't pertain to Dante's discovery about 'Office' sex. : )

Have a great day!
(proud agnostic, mom to Calliope and Sagan, wife to atheist husband also named Randy!)

You son's complete and total cuteness never ceases to amaze me. You've definitely got you hands full there!! I hope your blog stays up until Edward is that age....I'm sure I'm going to need some help when he comes at me with questions like D does you!!
