The birds Look! Something shiny!

"Mom.  How do people get babies?"

"You know how.  Remember, your brother grew in mommy's tummy and then he was born and we had a baby."

"No, but how do they get in mommies' tummies?"


Expectant stare.

"Um.  When a mommy and daddy love each other and get married... ahem...errr... theymakeababyandthenit'sborn."

"What?!  They MAKE a baby?  HOW?!"

"Uh...did I say make?"

"Yes.  They make a baby.  Tell me how."


"Mom?  Tell me how you make a baby."

"...I'll tell you when you're older..."

"I want to know now.  Tell me how."

"Hey!  Want some juice?  Let's see if there are any cartoons on!"

I think I handled that well.


  1. I am so enjoying watching you raise children.

  2. That was handled very well. It might be a good idea to come up with a slightly more accurate explanation for the next time she asks. Or a good stock of attention diversions.


Leave a comment! Be nice. Sarcasm is welcome. Trolling is not.
