ok, well i was cleaning scotts bedroom ( he does it, but not to my standard Embarassed )
and one of his activity books was on the floor, so i picked it up and he had drawn a picture of a naked lady! Shocked
lol i did giggle to myself at first, but should i be concerned? he has literally just turned 8!
i closed the book, and it had written on the front cover "dont look insdie!" lol
is this just a part of growing up and curiosity? shud i talk to him about it?
i had a VERY sheltered childhood, so this really isnt the kinda thing i experienced!
any help/advice, opinions would be greatly appreciated!!
Very Happy xXx

Laughing bless him! dont worry, its normal. when your oh comes home, you might want him to have 'the talk' with him though. boys find it too embarrassing having that chat with their mums, ive found Laughing

I don't have children that age but I would say its nothing to be worried about - its not like he's drawn something happening to the lady or her getting hurt or anything. He might just be very interested as you are PG and wonder all about that. I'd maybe just check thou where he has seen a naked lady - in case he has seen any film or magazines he shouldn't.

thats not very supportive is it Confused dont suppose he'd prefer to do the periods/where babies come from with you daughter eh? Laughing
you could do a random 'do you have any questions about the baby coming' conversation, covering the differences between men and women in a very roundabout way, but your oh will still have to prepare himself, because some questions are simply easier to ask another guy than a mum, be it their dad, an uncle or whatever x

lol we did ask how babies get into my tummy - when he was 4! lol n i just told him that tom put a seed in there n it grows into a baby - he has never asked anymore since - until the other day - me, my son and my dad were in the car and him n my dad had a lil convo:
Scott - "grandad, did u know mummy has got a baby in her tummy?"
Dad - "has she?"
Scott - "yeah, Tom sneaked in while she was asleep n put a seed into her tummy"
paused for a min "muuuum, how did tom get his seed into your tummy? did you have to swallow it?"
lol at this my dad choked n i cuddnt stop laughing!!
but i told him i would talk to him about it when he got home, but he hasnt sed anything since, and i hadnt thought about it until now!
Lalena, my Eldest has a diff dad from the others, and no, with that kind of thing he is far from supportive!! lol - he is still like a lil kid himself ( when scott broke his arm, they were sitting in the hosp, having farting competition!! )
but yeh, ill wait until the younger ones r in bed n ill talk to him abiut the baby, n see if he wants to talk about anythin, dont wana embarrass him obviously!! and then wait TIl OH is home n he can talk to him properly about "boy stuff!" lol my time will come when its my daughter askin! lol xXx

I am really dreading having to talk about this stuff with Lucy! My Mum (and Dad) made it so cripplingly embarrassing, I can still hardly talk about anything like that! Don't want to do that with her, but I am hoping having lambs, calves and the occasional puppy born, might make her more worldly wise than me.

Good luck loola!!
