Frightening Question

At different times today, I overheard 2 conversations about the same subject.
It involved a curious kid plus a stumped parent in each instance.
Kid asks parent "where do babies come from".

There are numerous clean answers to come up with, it amazes me how that question scares some parents.

Since I'm so nice, I'm putting it out there so you can get a head-start to come up with a good clean answer before some kid asks you "where do babies come from".

How about starting with "Babies come from their mom's tummy".

  1. I think before some kids ask,they already know..they just wanna cofirm.. From mom`s tummy is a good start ...

    1. Didi, that is what makes it funny that some parents get uncomfortable when kids ask the question.

    1. Dentaa, don't ask yet. You are still too young to know. lol
      Same here. I don't believe I asked that question as a kid. Just like lots of other kids, I found out.

  6. The kid would then ask a follow up question: How did the babies get into Mommy's tommy? :-)

    1. Mommy can then say "your dad & I worked on it together". Gotta be sleek cos kids would rather go play than dwell on the answer to one question.
