Ms.Aadya’s class had got some eggs and they were waiting for them to hatch. Everyday,she came home from school and talked about them.
“Mum,we are aiming for them to hatch on Wednesday”
“Mum,they will surely hatch tonight”
And finally the chickens hatched and we talked more about them..And then,she asked-“Mum..how are babies made?How are Human babies made?”
I took a deep breath,trying to figure out a no-fuss explanation fit for a 6 year old.
Now we’ve had the “Where do babies come from?” discussion many times..but “how are they made” gulp…
After a minute,that felt like forever,I cleared my throat,but before I could speak,she did..
“Oh I know how babies are made”At this time,I was starting to hyperventilate…she continued nonchalantly, “First you need to collect some twigs,for the bones and some leather for the skin,put it in a test-tube and add some chemicals.Then wait for your baby to get made”….
SD had also walked in the door and both of us just looked at each other and sighed with relief… BTW,I am pretty sure this theory comes from The PowerPuff Girls.
Yet again,Thanks to the PowerPuff girls,the Day is saved 😛
