I'm glad my mom didn't go the birds and bees route with me. I think it's better to actually use the word 'sex' in the conversation and explain in a clearer view. Sometimes the birds&bees talk can leave kids still uncomfortable talking sex when they get older.
I doubt this will be the last time.
cause when a woman says she loves you honey she really means [money]
When the little bluebird <br />
Who has never said a word <br />
Starts to sing Spring<br />
When the little bluebell <br />
At the bottom of the dell <br />
Starts to ring Ding dong Ding dong <br />
When the little blue clerk <br />
In the middle of his work <br />
Starts a tune to the moon up above <br />
It is nature that is all <br />
Simply telling us to fall in love <br />
And that's why birds do it, bees do it <br />
Even educated fleas do it <br />
Let's do it, let's fall in love
Its an old and immensely popular song, I think that maybe that it is why people refer to the sex talk as 'the birds and the bees'
