I was going through my old emails at work today and came across some fairly entertaining ones I've sent to BH over the years. Here's one about P, who was 7 at the time.

P asked me yesterday why we have privates. I told him they’re for making babies. He didn’t understand, duh, so I explained that to make a baby, the half from mommy and the half from daddy has to come from inside their bodies...it’s not like we can just buy the ingredients and cook up a baby in the kitchen. And the only way this stuff can combine to make the baby is by using the private parts.
I can’t believe it, but he didn’t even ask HOW. And I wasn’t going to push it.
I’m sure more questions will follow.
I have a feeling P didn't ask any follow up questions, because he had no idea what I was talking about. Either that or the imagery shocked him speechless.
