Kids love asking questions. But when it comes to learning the birds and the bees, things can get a little awkward.
Mom Jessica Mercedes Penzari posted a conversation she had with her 4-year-old son Hendrix. The boy wanted to know how his mom and dad made a baby. Let’s just say the question caught Penzari a little off guard at the time.
“I am not ready for this convo! He’s 4! Slow down, kid!” the caption read.
Hendrix started to ask his mom if his parents had made a baby. Then the conversation took off from there.
Hendrix: But how did you make a human?
Mom: With lots of love.
Hendrix: Mommy, how did you get me in your body? How?
Mom: I made you with lots of love. Mommy and daddy came together, and we made you.
Hendrix: You connected your love together?
Mom: That’s exactly right. Yes.
The little guy then proceeded to ask mom to make him a baby brother.
The video received over 1.4 million likes on Instagram.
“He knows this is not magic and no way an abstract concept made a tangible human. This conversation is far from over,” a user said.
“This is too precious,” someone replied.
“When I was asking these questions, I already knew,” another joked.
“That’s a cute way of describing it if the kid seems too young yet for the real story,” a person commented.
“It’s totally normal to have real conversations about this stuff with kids. We should not be embarrassed about telling them with the right vocabulary,” someone added.
