Straight So my 4 year old son waslked in on me mid-tampon insertion.

so yeah. i started my period last week and rediscovered why i always resort to tampons halfway through. so i had just gotten out of the shower, stark naked and one foot up on the toilet with a tampon halfway up my lady bits when asher walks in.

that was wqhat his face looked like, literally.

(in an astonished stage whisper) "Mommy.......what are you doing??"

"uhhh....uhhhhh..... .........???? uhhhhhhhh.... ok, well, mommies... umm.. once a month or so, mommies bleed from their vagina, and we use these tampons to keep blood off our underwear. mommy's not hurt or anything, it's just that our bodies have to get rid of some old blood once in awhile."

"oh. "(while i was explanining that to him i was finishing up with the tampon and hoping he would be distracted by my words and not watch... unfortunaltely, he turned his attention back to my crotch, where he saw the damn string hanging there) "the 'pampon' has a rope?? you have a ROPE? in your BAGINA??"



"well yes, i have to be able to take it back out and flush it down the toilet, kind of like toilet paper. asher, honey? mommy is done, can you go find something to do while i get dressed??"

of course... what he does in stead is go find john john and recount what he learned just a few seconds before. john was laughing so hard he couldn't breathe, and JUST THEN my mom called- John answered and said "Hey, asher learned something new today!", handed the phone to asher and told him to tell her what mommy told him.



i mean, my kids see us naked. we are totally comfortable with that. but when he caught me sticking a tampon up my hoohaa it was literally like being a deer caught in the headlights. wtf am i supposed to tell him, other than the truth? i didn't want to wave him away with no explanation and no understanding of what was going on...and i totally suck at making things 'kid friendly', at least according to my mother. i don't really see a problem with telling him that women have vaginas, men have penises, and how and why the function and what they do but... i really wish i had been able to come up with a more delicate way of explaining it to him

I have to laugh at the image of your face and his too

That said, I think you did great with that and I couldn't have said it better. I think you handled that great and as long as everyone will leave him alone about it he will move on and it will be no big deal
