Sex or Santa?

Which comes first?

Actual conversation:

Me: While Bre and I were driving to get the camera today I thought it would be a great time for a little birds and bees talk.
Brian: Good idea, she's captive and can't run away from you.
Me: So do you think it's time to tell Breanna about sex?
Brian: Do you think we should tell her there's no Santa first?

OMG! I am then hysterical telling Brian of how that conversation will go down.

me: Breanna this is how babies are made...
pause, as it registers... being we have 2 children her parents must have done such a thing at least twice...
Breanna: EWWW!
me: Oh and while we are having such a grown up talk I thought I'd tell you there is no Santa, Easter Bunny or Tooth Fairy.
Breanna's head explodes.
The End.

ME: Sex or Santa, that's...
IN UNISON: A great idea for a blog!


Honestly I am wrestling with this now....I'm opting for Sex...and leaving Santa in place...

some of us are quite happy we don't have kids to explain anything to!

I'll let them keep on believing in Santa forever, but we have done the sex talk thing here.
Must admit it did make for a great blog topic.

Sprog's friends took care of Santa, so I felt I should prevent them from trying to take care of sex. They are IDIOTS with the sex bit.

HAHAHA! I can see the same version of your "virtual" talk happening in my house ;-)

I love how the first thing we think of is whether or not we have just thought of some blog fodder ;-)

Just don't tell her about what Mr. and Mrs. Claus do in the off-season!

I say sex. I started talking to my girls about sex when they were three. Yes, three. Because I didn't want it to seem shocking and I certainly didn't want them to hear it from somebody other than me or their mother first.
