Not the birds & the bees: It's turtles...

I was listening to Christopher as he read to me from one of his library books:

A male turtle courts a female turtle. The two turtles mate.

So before he asks me what does this mean, I ask him if he knows what that means.

"Yeah but I don't want to talk about it."

Just a reminder here, he is seven and in the first grade. I ask, "Why?"

sigh  "Female and male is just a way to call them boyfriend and girlfriend like humans."

I said, "Okay" so we wouldn't linger on that thought ~flips to next page....
