Where do babies come from??

When was the question asked? What did you say? How did it go?

I remember I was six. I had a book from the library. I asked my mom if she did that to have me. She said yes. I was so disgusted with her. Lmao

  • They were all still in elementary and they asked me as a group effort. I began giving them a biological explanation (not graphic) and they got skeeved out.
    So I said I can either tell you the real way or that babies come from the cabbage patch. Which do you prefer?
    They all said the cabbage patch and took off to play.

  • I honestly don't remember ever asking, though I'm sure I did. When I was a kid we learned everything about these things from "the back of the bus" lol. All the big/cool kids sat in the back of the school bus, and this was where I had my first lessons in sex education.

  • DD was 4 and DS was 6 ( developmentally delayed).
    I read them the book for ages 3-9 then asked the questions, then let them ask me questions. The book basically said that a baby is made by a sperm and an egg and grows int eh mother womb. It also talked about how the mommy and daddy's body dit together in a special way for the sperm to get to the egg. It was just enough information for me to be comfortable with and to answer all of their questions.

  • I don't think I ever asked. My mom wouldn't have dealt with it well. I do remember finding a copy of Where Did I come From in her bedroom (we used her room as a tv room as well.)

    My kids were 4 & 6, and I was pregnant with DS2. They would ask and I would say things like "it takes a man and a woman to make a baby." And went on from there as the questions got more complex, as they got older. Haven't had it yet from DS2.
