There should be a limit on how many of the "Big Questions" your kid gets to ask you in one day.
Last night I got hit with both "Is Santa Claus real?" and "Where do babies come from?" within 10 minutes of each other (and no, I don't know why the kid was thinking about Santa and the origin of life at the same time).
That is just...not fair.
Also, no fair asking me stuff like that while I am trying to pay the drive-thru attendant at Carl's, Jr. Because some stuff just cannot be multi-tasked. Anatomy explanations and French fries do not go together.
Unless I get a LOT of alcohol.
Which was not really appropriate for this situation anyway.
But to get back to my point...NOT FAIR.
New limit is one earth-shattering question per day. Unless anatomy is involved - then it's a limit of one per week.
Because Mommy's brain needs time to recover from the trauma.
P.S. For those who want to know, the answer to "Is Santa Claus real?" is "What do YOU think?" I figure that buys me one more year at least ;-)
P.P.S. As for the other question, I dodged the bullet a bit because it turns out he didn't want an explanation of the actual PROCESS so much as the geographic location of where a baby comes out. An "appropriate for a 7 year old" explanation of this location was provided - AFTER we got home.
