"Out of the mouths of babes" would be a very inappropriate title here.

One of the people on my friends list recently made a post about discussing the facts of life with her youngest child. In the comments section, faraway66 mentioned some problems she and her husband had had on the same subject.

good on you for grabbing the teachable moment! when dh tried to grab the teachable moment (with eldest when he was 9 or 10), he couldn't even bring himself to say the word "penis". Son (who had already heard the facts of life discussion from moi) took pity on him and gently said "you mean That Which Shall Not Be Named, right Papa?". Henceforth, we've been referring to the penis as his little Voldemort.
