At Dinner Last Night
After gobbling up a bite of spaghetti, Darling Daughter asks, "How do you get a baby?"
Adults look around, acting like they didn't hear.
Oldest daughter who has now had "the talk" uses wide eyes to look at Mom.
Persistant Darling Daughter--"How do you get a baby?"
Mom (seemingly preoccupied with spaghetti pieces on the floor), "Hmmm?"
Daughter "How do you get a baby? I mean, I know about going to the hospital and sitting on the bed and acting like you're sick and all, but before that....How do you get a baby?"
Mom's answer is most unenlightening (as it was meant to be!). "Oh, it's pretty complicated," said Mom. We'll talk about it a little more when you're a little older."
The first time around, Mama just told the oldest darling daughter that God gave out the babies. That was enough for her until she was older.
Silly Mama. This isn't the first time around.
