this was our conversation FIRST THING THIS MORNING as we were getting ready for school and work:
blake: mom, how do you have babies if you're not married?
ster: well, there is something that you have to do to make babies. they don't just come when you get married.
blake: really?? oh...
ster: yep.. but 2 people should be in love and really care about eachother. like your dad and i weren't married, but we had you!
ster: blake, i really want to talk with you about this, but we need to have more time. can we talk about this tonight and you can ask me whatever you want?
blake: maybe we can have this talk when i'm like 10 or 9.. okay mom?
ster: hell to the yeah!
okay so i didn't really say "hell to the yeah", but that's what i was thinking! although i can already tell that it's not going to last that long. he's slowly coming around to asking me more and more questions and revealing to me that kids at school definitely talk about it and say the word "s e x" a lot. it's coming soon, and let me tell you- i wasn't as nervous this morning when he sprung it on me as i thought i'd be.
