HTH!
This is pretty much how we handle it, too. We are very open family but give age appropriate answers.

If he asks how they get there tell him that grown men, like his father, make the seeds in their testicles and someday when he is grown and ready to have a wife and make babies he will make seeds too. Tell him that he is too young to make seeds and have a wife and someday he will be ready to.

All my kids have asked around that age because I have been pregnant a lot. So we answer the best we can. I use the word seed and egg because its easy for a child to visualize over the word sperm...my son asked what the seeds look like and we told him that they look like baby tadpoles and we showed him a picture of tadpoles.. That was all it took.

LOL.. cute! My 6 year old asks women how their labor was after they have babies. I suppose he knows a little more because his mama is an L&D nurse.
