This weekend my kid asked How are babies made? & How do they get in Mommy’s tummies?. He’s four years old for goodness sakes! Don’t kids ask these questions when they are like TEN?! And my child isn’t one that can be pacified with “God makes them” – he still wants to know how God does it. He wants some kind of scientific explanation for the whole thing. So… this weekend we talked about sperm and eggs and fertilization… and then Opie wanted to know how the sperm gets to the egg. Thankfully, subject changes work great on four-year-olds. What do you want for dessert after dinner tonight?
Of course, I sorta wish I’d had this story in my pocket on Saturday afternoon.
