how would you answer?

Thanks to our dogs going through their first heat cycle and now being spayed my kiddos are learning the basics of biology.  Having to explain the physical changes the pups went through in a way a 6 yr old can understand was interesting.  I was feeling pretty happy with all my answers until Bub asked me one little question as I tucked him in bed.

"Mom, do women go into heat like dogs?"


I stammered out "uh sorta.... goodnight dear"

That didn't satisfy his curiousty one bit. GAH! HE started in on the SPECIFICS of the dogs' heat and asking if girls do the same thing. I pulled out his little Bible and read him a story. I know I know total cop out!

I'm thrilled he hasn't brought it up. I know it just a matter of time before he does ask again. Guess I better get my act together and have some age appropriate (and modest) answers.
