As we were lazing around this morning, Rose announced that Coco is going to have puppies. Here's how the conversation picked up from there:
Rose: Coco is going to have a puppy.
Evan: How do you know?
Rose: When her nipples get big, that means she's going to have puppies.
Evan (laughing): Rose, you don't know anything about sex.
Rose: Yes I do!
Me: What do you know about sex?
Rose: I know about sex! (I cringe) . . . and the shiny beetles!
Rose: My friend told me about the shiny beetles. They're black and brown.
Me: What does that have to do with sex?
Rose: In-sects! I know a lot about them, Mom! They're . . . (begins a very long, detailed description of the aforementioned beetles.)
Whew! For a moment there, I thought we were all going to get an education (once again) from our five-year-old. We did, just not what I was expecting, which is just fine with me.
