Now what?

One should be armed and ready with a simple get-out-answer for any of life’s tricky questions in order to avoid a disaster. Otherwise, for example, when your four year old asks how his sister got in your tummy in the first place, your head will say “OK, keep calm”, and then you might start with “When a mummy and daddy love each other very much…”, gingerly following that up with “they decide they want a baby..” Then, as his eyes widen with anticipation, your head will say “I’ve got nothing! Quick, create a diversion!”, and you might panic, drop a match and scream “Run, run the kitchen’s on fire!”

How did your family talk about "the birds and the bees"?
