Aki's Preschool Years · Akisms

Aki asks, “What is sex, Mummy?”

This was one of those days that I thanked God for sending mommy friends. I think it was last year when my college batchmate slash then-officemate slash mommy friend, Shar shared that her darling daughter asked the same question. Because Shar shared her experience, I was able to immediately  and confidently answer Aki’s question without panic or doubt.

My answer?

“It is whether you are a boy or a girl. Your sex is boy. My sex is girl. People also call them male or female. ”

And now you know too.

Thank you, Shar!


We already had a discussion on the other meaning of sex but I will reserve the juicy details for another post.
