Where do babies come out?

Where DO they come from?

Where DO they come from?

That’s how the conversation with my 6-year-old granddaughter started (she asked the question, not me – just in case you were confused).

“Have you asked your Mom?”

“I’m asking you, Grandma.”

“Well, they just come out.”  She’s only six for God’s sake!  I don’t care how worldly kids seem, there are just some explanations that can wait for a while!

“Do they come out of your bottom?”

“Well, sort of.”

“That’s gross!  Why don’t they come out of your mouth – then they would be clean!  What a dumb way to have babies.”  She said all of this while shaking her head at the stupidity of the whole arrangement.

“Well – that’s just how God designed us.”

“Well – it’s dumb.  Do you like my new fingernail polish?”

And that was the end of sex education for the day.
