Drew recently asked me (randomly - as always) how they get babies out when they're born ..... I hesitated because I wasn't quite sure he was ready to hear that part of the story. He soon asked if they have to cut the penis? Relieved that he was more interested in the boy's pain - and THAT area - than a mother's pain - and THAT area - I had to explain to him about germs and such but then I was afraid he was gonna run off and talk to his Jewish friends at school! So then we got into a religious discussion about why people do or don't "cut" the penis and at what age...... I was basically exhausted. The questions he's asking now are requiring much more complex answers with much more complex personal views. But, alas, I will have an open minded son.
