Mom, Whats a period??

My 8 y/o son asks me at a pizza joint tonight.
Immediately a million things go through my head- he cant possibly mean PERIOD, where would he hear that, I talked about it today but he was at school when i was on the phone.
Me: a period is the dot at a sentence.
Code: no, not that kind of period.
Me thinking lightening fast again, i really don't want to explain periods to my 8 yr old. he knows how babies are created, he knows were they come out off. he does not know how the sperm meets the egg, lol somehow he missed that question. but seriously, does he need to know about the uterus and how it sheds when there is no implantation of an egg and blood comes out your who-ha......... Code interrupts my thinking..
Code: the kind when your in a bigger school.
Me: oh, those are classes!!!!!!!!!!!!! (thank you)!!!!! you have 0-7 PERIODS!!! depending on your schedule. So one period may be math, the next science........................ you could have PE for 3rd period....................
Cody continues on and on about HS Periods, subjects and classes, blah, blah, blah. I finally have to tell him to eat.

I can just hear your big sigh of relief right now ... I breathed one this week after my 6-year-old asked how babies are made. She said, "I know it takes a mommy and a daddy, but HOW do they do it?" Lucky for me, one of the other kids interrupted from another room with a yell that gave me a convenient reason to run out of the room. She hasn't thought to ask the question again, but I just know it won't be long ... didn't think these questions would come so soon!!
