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.
