Wallace: “Mom, are cat balls also called testicles?”
Me: “Hmmm…that’s a great question, Wal.” I’m a pro at buying myself time. “I’m not sure, but I assume they are.”
For the moment, I’m regretting being so forthcoming with my children about sex and body parts. My goal was to normalize bodies and explain things in age-appropriate ways while they’re young to prevent all the future awkwardness and having to have ONE big birds-and-bees talk when they’re older. But these two NEVER stop with the questions.
Wallace: “. . . do ya think you could Google it?”
FYI, cat balls ARE in fact called testicles. Thank you, Dr. Google, today’s friendly veterinarian.
I should also thank Bubbles, the cat, for inspiring the search.
What kinds of questions do the children in your life ask? Do tell.
