You learned what at school?!?!?

Today was the big day for 4th graders where the school nurses separated the boys and the girls and gave the first sex ed talk. With a lump in my throat, I filled out the permission slip and hoped for the best.

I was on a mission to deliver a cake to a friend this afternoon, completely forgetting to ask Andrew how "the talk" went. My friend started telling me everything her son had said about "the talk". So, on the ride home I was glad to have the chance to ask Andrew about it. I was trying to be subtle and just said, "So, what did you learn in school today?"

His reply...Multiplication!!


"Yes, we learned to multiply by 10's, 100's, and 1000's." Relieved, I brought it up again. This time he shared a little about the presentation, but thankfully, there was no more talk of multiplication!!

Pretty sure I got new grey hairs out of that conversation! :)

At first, I was like--they did a math lesson to explain where babies come from?

but it's not that kind of multiplication!

I love that he gets his first sex ed talk...
yet the most interesting part of his day was learning to add zeros behind numbers!!! LOL

I love that kid.
