It's a beautiful spring here in Mayberry. Flowers are bloomin', birds are singin', new life is burgeoning everywhere. And the kindergarteners are learning about babies. Frog babies, chicken and duck babies, bunny babies.
(You parents in the room can see where this is going, right?)
Yep. Now they are curious about people babies.
Aeron asks me, solemnly, "Mama? How do people babies get into their mama's tummy?"
Oh, lord. I'm so not ready for this. "It's very complicated, sweetie. We'll talk about it later." I'm thinking, like, in 5 years or so.
"Later, like in 10 minutes?" she asks.
"No, some other day. When you are older."
"I know how." pipes up Claire. "The mama keeps eating and eating and then the baby shows up."
