Birds, Bees, Beer

19 Mar

images-6My daughter’s been learning the facts of life at school lately. Naturally, she’s had lots of questions, most of them about the workings of male-female relationships.

“Mom,” she asked me. “What happens when a man and a woman get married?”

Before I could answer, my son jumped in.

“When a man and a woman love each other very much,” he said, “they get married and then the man can’t have beer with his friends anymore.”

    LOL! That’s hilarious and an insightful comment from your son. 😀

      My son is a riot. He’s going through a hard time right now, but he’s generally a pretty funny kid.

        Oh, I’m sorry to hear that. I hope he feels better soon.

    Said with practicality – like a man. So Funny
    (Bees must be invading brains today. Subject’s just a-buzz)

      Did you write about bees? I am slowly catching up with stuff in the inbox. Love bees!

        Bee swarms here with the 90 degree temps – there’s a video of them on a car just down the block at our grocery store (link on post)
        Bees are cool – we try to plant stuff they like – did you see the article about how flowers alter their blooms with caffeine to attract bees? cool!

    Hahaha. Better be true!

      I don’t know where he got this; his father doesn’t drink beer and, frankly, doesn’t go out with his friends, either.

    Hahaha…his clever wit had probably saved you from having to delve into the more delicate matters when a man and a woman get married.

      Oh, if only it were true. We had an extensive conversation about how two women can have a baby together, as she knows some women who have had babies and are married to other women. It’s a riot when she finally gets something.

    Haha! That is adorable!
