It’s a question kids have been asking for years. And what do YOU say when they ask? Or what were you told as a kid?
That’s what we asked on today’s show.
And we found out parents still do whatever they can to avoid giving up the real answer.
I still remember how my Mom dealt with the issue.
“If there’s ever anything you want to know, just ask.”
And I thought: Thanks Mom! I’ll be sure and get right on that!
Here’s what you had to say on the radio this morning--
I still think today my Mom still can’t explain where babies come from the right way.
Here’s what I was told: Babies come from the doctor. A mommy and daddy have to get married then they go see the doctor and he gives them a baby. But if they aren’t ready for a baby than they get a dog.
I told my kids I washed Dad’s clothes with mine. And my Mom told us if we kiss a boy we’d have a baby.
There’s a secret door at the hospital. That’s where babies come from.
We were told that seeds were planted in the backyard. Then Mom & Dad wrestle in the bedroom. If Dad wins we have a boy.
Dad must have won a lot because I have 3 brothers!
When I was about 5 yrs old my older brother told me I was hatched.
I was told pregnancy came from the tap water in my home town in Freeland.
When my husband was going to EMT class he had to take our one son. It just so happened to be labor and delivery night. My son now thinks you poop them out.
My brother and I were told very young that pregnant women had watermelons in their bellies from swallowing the seeds.
I was told babies come from sunflowers so when my mom use to grow them I would cut them all down.
My mom terrified me when I was little because her explanation was to get pregnant you get caught and the way she sounded it’s like you get pregnant like you get a cold. I was horrified as a child lol
My parents said a bird pooped on a rock and the sun hatched me.
How was YOUR weekend? Mine was colorful! Pics to explain…
I got some NEW FALL HAIR at Bruno’s Hair & Nail Boutique in Plains on Saturday! Hafta give a big THANK YOU and mental hug to Vikki & Sue, the stylists who collaborated to give me this slammin’ color! Whaddaya think? I highly recommend their boutique! They do hair, makeup, spray tanning, manis & pedis, everything! Click HERE for their Facebook – give ‘em a thumb!
Sunday I broadcasted from Tunkhannock in the morning, and then managed to steal a few minutes to myself on the way home. Something about the scenic beauty of Tunkhannock - makes me feel like home. One with nature. Sorry, I’m kind of a hippie…
But come ON – how could you NOT think this is a little slice of heaven?
And then Sunday night, my good buddy Alan K. Stout on our sister station (102.3 The Mountain) played one of my original tunes on “Music On The Menu”. Always a thrill to hear your stuff on the radio. That never gets old. And he paid me one of the nicest vocal compliments I’ve EVER gotten in my life. I won’t repeat it, cuz I’m not a cocky dillhole, but Alan – THANK YOU! I adore you and appreciate everything you do for indie music!!
Now, back at it - Bloomsburg Fair today! Hopefully pics from that tomorrow! Excited!!! YEEEE-HAW! ….not sure that was really necessary. Yee-haw? Even in writing I can’t pull that off. Happy Monday ya’ll! ;) ~Liss
My weekend started out with a trip to the Phlebotomy Department at Wilkes-Barre General. Luckily I wasn't there to have the vampires take my blood! Crystle and the crew won free lunch from Subway.
If you want to be our next winner, text SUBWAY to 72881.
I had a friend from California roll into town. My bud "Slappy" used to be our neighbor in Wilkes-Barre. Here he is meeting our dogs for the first time.
And it was a rarity on Saturday. Sue actually took a few hours off from Real Estate so we hit the Fall Film Festival in Tunkhannock at the Dietrich Theatre. If you are tired of comic book movies or Rom-coms, check out one of these flicks. We saw "Wild Horse, Wild Ride" a heart warming documentary about taming wild Mustang horses. Great flick.
CLICK HERE for the schedule of movies at the festival.
Dinner at Mizu Sushi. I have no idea what I'm trying to do with my hands here! Our friends accused me of trying to grab Sue's boob.
And Saturday night was a rarity. I actually stayed awake for the entire SNL. What a mistake that was. Outside of the "Undecided Voter" bit, SNL was disappointing. The highlight? The music guests Mumford & Sons. Their new album hits the streets Tuesday.
We had the most HEAVENLY Sparty at Woodhouse Day Spa in Kingston last night! I can't believe how wonderful I feel today! Some of us got massages, some of us got facials, but ALL of us were relaxed and incredibly impressed with the staff and ambiance at Woodhouse!
I would highly recommend them for any spa services - if you'd like to check out their website, click here:

I lose it at weddings. From the first look of the bride to the groom and his mother dancing ... to the best man and maid of honor speeches ... I cry every time. The amount of love poured into one room is just so beautiful! This past weekend my friends Amanda & Tim got married and it was one of the most beautiful weddings EVER. She was stunning, he was so handsome, and they just looked so in love. Thankfully they passed out tissues at the ceremony, so there were no makeup malfunctions from all of the tears. Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs.! Wishing you a lifetime of love and laughter!
Jeff happened to be the DJ at their reception ... so we snapped a pic during cocktail hour. It was such a gorgeous day for a wedding!
And there's Boyfriend! He busted out a mean CUPID SHUFFLE! You'll be seeing plenty of wedding photos over the next few months because many of our close friends are tying the knot this year! Feel the loveeee! :)
Saturday I hosted another Big Brother event. This time I took 6th grader Rory on a kayak trip to Francis Slocum.
The calendar said "Summer", but it seemed more like a Fall day. The wind made the lake real choppy.
Rory paddled like a champ, but the wind and rough water cut our trip short.
These are the kind of days that make being a Big Brother so special.
Later we went to Hillside Farms in Shavertown for ice cream and of course, a visit to the animals. This is a MUST for kids. Rory loved the alpacas, goats and sheep, but...
...his favorite was the chicken that we nicknamed Afro chicken.
