Question of the day

Today's question comes from my six-year old and was asked after she knowingly informed me that 'some people have children even if they're not married'.

Q. How do you get a baby when your married, I mean how does your tummy know whether you're married or not?
A. er

Thankfully she spotted a super duper sledging opportunity as I mulled the question over, and forgot about it - for the moment.

Oh, I so know how you feel! When Kez asked me a similar question I mumbled something about 'special cuddles' and it was all Tim could do not to burst out laughing!!

Good lord. Keep this one away from Beaverboosh's blog or you'll be up all night trying to answer even more difficult questions. :-)

Got here while surfing around. Actually, I got a similar question from a child. I think it was a younger cousin of mine. I was also in deep thought trying to construct something that is comprehendible to the child. It's difficult!

Give it to her straight girl, nothing to do with marriage, all about special cuddles... half of her classmates parents are unlikely married... or on their seconds...

I'm happy to report that the question has not been repeated but I guess it's only a matter of time. Thankfully, the third dose of Mamma Mia: The Movie' - we have to see the sun some time you know - still didn't prompt any queries about multiple fathers and 'sleeping with hundreds of men'. Again, only a matter of time.
