Finally, I was able to find some sweet mangoes in the Asian store, I got 1 box with 16 pieces for $9.99. Cheap or not? I don't really know...

While we were having our mangoes tonight, my son ate 6 sides while my daughter ate 3 sides, I was telling my kids how I craved for mangoes when I was pregnant with both of them! And out of the blue, my son asked me "where did we (babies) come from?" ... OMG! How do I answer his question? ... I looked at my hubby ... smiling ... we were both speechless ... Seeing the look on our faces he finally said "never mind, mom."

I never did answer his question. Should I? He's only 8!

My daughter's question? "mommy did we eat mangoes too when we were in your tummy?" ... And I just said "yes, you ate whatever mommy ate." She just laugh out loud, yung nakakahawang halakhak. ",)

oh no. now that reality hits you with all these interrogation, its time to brush up on what and how to say it with hubby. you have to be consistent and sure of what to say. the curious mind of a little child is here to stay....God bless. ika nga, May the Force be with you.

My cousin learned about the birds and the bees when she was about that age. I had a children's book called "So That's How I Was Born!" and read it to her. That sort of eased the blow a little bit for her folks. :p

Junnie, I'll just tell him to ask his "ninong" junnie na lang??? so get ready with your answer. :-)

Toni, thanks, already reserved the book at the library, I should get it in a couple of days.

yeah, i think 8 is a good age to talk about the birds and the bees. we had to talk to our son when he was 7. with everything on tv and movies these days, it's better they hear it from us and no longer get confused.

i love mangoes! yeah, that's a good deal. here it's $1 each, and it's not even the asian mango. boo!
