I always thought that I would be very open with my kids and be able to smoothly and delicately answer questions regarding to "where babies come from", etc. My mom was always great with our questions because she is a nurse and has taught "that class" in elementary schools before. So, with that good role model, I thought I would be equally smooth.
I was wrong.
After the red face, and giggles, and murmers from me just thinking of the explanations that I would be forced to deal with, I explained to Jason that I would be in charge of educating the girls, and he would have to educate Jonathan.
I was wrong.
I have talked with the girls about "the subject" to the level appropriate for their age. I have also now talked with Jonathan, because he did NOT KNOW THE DEAL that I had made with Papa Echo, and asked me (while papa was taking a nap) where babies come from. I looked around and saw I was alone and then as smoothly as I was able to asked "you mean like baby pigs?" because they had just gone to the farm... He then explained, that no he wanted to know about people babies. I looked around again and still finding myself alone, then explained in a not so smooth way, but as simply (and truthfully) as possible where people babies come from.
Papa Echo so owes me!!
