When my son was 2 going on 3 he asked where babies came from. I told him they came from the mommys tummy. So he asked how they got there, I told him by mommy and daddy. They make babies with a special kind of love. So one day he goes to his aunt(his dads sister) and asks her if she knows where babies come from. She told him the stork brings them. He told her she doesn't know because that's not where and began to tell her what I told him. She was shocked and thought it was too much too soon. Now I don't really care what she thinks, when she has children she can tell them whatever. But what do you moms think? How much or how little do your children know? Do you have another way of explaining this to a child?

YOu are doing just fine. You have to answer the questions as they come, honestly and age appropriately and you did!
I have a high schooler and I promis you that what you are doing will help you in the end. If you are honest and unafraid to answer questions as they come the children WILL talk to you more than if you hide and act like it is something secret that you cant tell them. You WANT open lines.... because in the long run THAT is what will help you raise good kids.... not secrets.
