How Did The Baby Get There?

 Thought some of you might enjoy this.

Ever since we told SS8 and SS5 that we are expecting, they have both been thrilled. Of course, this news brought on an uncomfortable question from SS8. How did the baby get in your belly? My husband, reluctant to have the sex talk said "The doctor put it there." Our little smarty pants wouldn't buy that. After avoiding the topic for sometime, we finally found a book that was very simple in explaining reproductive organs and simply that the sperm and the egg meet in the uterus and that's how the baby is made. SS8 was completely satisfied with the book and was grateful to finally know how his baby sister got in my belly. We did tell him that it was a big deal that we were sharing this secret and that it meant he was big enough to know. We also explained that each parent tells their children when they feel their children are old enough to know and that it's not ok to talk about it at school because some kids aren't ready to know.

So tonight, we were eating dinner and Hubby was talking about when the baby comes and said that she would probably come early. (This is based solely on his opinion, he has no reason other than he just thinks it will happen). I told him, you never know, she might just take her time. Well my husband responded "Yes I do know cause she has my special miracle grow sperm," appearantly forgetting that SS8 was even at the table. Well SS8 piped up and said "Hey! Hey! I read that book and that's just disgusting!" So then me, hubby and MIL all started laughing and staring at him in shock and his little face turned beat red! It was hysterical! None of us expected him to pipe up like that because he had been so mature about the book and his new found knowledge that we forgot we even had the conversation!

Yeah, I wasn't sure if he made the connection because we didn't come out and say it. The book just said the sperm and the egg meet. Now I know he def made the connection.
