My four-year-old is very perceptive. He's always been. About a year ago, he started asking questions about feminine hygiene products. It all started in the public bathroom when he noticed the shiny box on the wall.
"Momma, what's that?!"
Trying to be discrete, I simply answered, "feminine hygiene products" hoping the big words would satisfy and he'd stop asking.
He's persistent, too. (Some might call it being stubborn.)
HELP!!! How do I explain, truthfully, to him what they are? It's really embarrassing when he keeps asking - whether in the bathroom or the store when I need to buy some. If I quenched his appetite for knowledge, he would stop asking.
PS - Yesterday my husband told him, "They are for women...it sort of helps them have babies." Huh? Hubby said Mr. Intensity thought it was candy and wanted some and that was the answer that came to mind in the moment.
