Birds and bees

I’ve been waiting for my older daughter to ask where babies come from, but although she asks questions about everything else in the world, questions about the birds and the bees have been totally absent. Finally, the other day, I took the opportunity to give a rudimentary explanation while we were at the ranch, tying it into why deer calls work.

She gave me a wide-eyed look and asked, “Will *I* have to do that??”

(Well, of course I told her she didn’t have to do anything she didn’t want to do, and besides, it’s only after she gets married anyway.)

    You do have to wonder if she’ll stumble across this blog entry once she’s 17 and has a slimy boyfriend, and what everyone’s take on the matter will be at that time. 😉
