Whatever Happened to the Stork?

Original post made by Sharon, Midtown, on Sep 23, 2008

In light of the decision in the UK to provide preliminary sex education for six-year old schoolchildren, the Times Online asks five children where babies come from and gets some priceless answers. Web Link

For example "To make a baby you need to eat 18 broccolis"

Great link, I like this response

Amy, 6:
I think God makes babies, using a very special magic.
They grow in a mummy's tummy.
I think God rolls a dice, maybe, that's got hundreds of numbers on it. Each lady has a number, and if that number matches the number that is on the dice that God throws, the lady gets a baby growing in her tummy. I think ladies are pregnant for about a month and then the baby comes out of the tummy.
I remember being in my mummy's tummy.
It was lovely and warm inside.

I'd ask my parents where babies came from. They told me to wait and I'd find out when I was old enough. Fortunately I found out from friends before I found out the way Bristol Palin found out.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
