Perhaps We’ve Been Over-thinking Things

How many children should we have?
Is the time right?
Am I healthy enough?
Was that a miscarriage?
Do I want to go through all that again?

I was recently talking with Eve’s kids when the 3-year-old asked me why I didn’t have a baby at my house. “We have a baby. Where’s your baby? Why don’t you have a baby?”

“Well,” patting my mid-section, “I’m just saving space here in case Heavenly Father wants to put one in there.”

Then the second grade son chimed in with a look on his face that seemed to say, “I really like you so Iiiii’m gonna help you get on the clue bus.”

“All you need to do is get some SPERM.”

“Thanks. I’ll look into that.”

Doh! The SPERM! The missing link. So next time I’m in Rite Aid, I’ll see what they have in stock.

    You have to admit, a child’s simplification of life is very admirable. When I was young, I always thought credit cards was magic money.

    “Son, we don’t have the money for that”

    “Yes, we do, use your credit card! PLEEEEEEASE!”

    Well of course! They probably had some on same the day after Thanksgiving! :o)

    Oops…I meant had some on SALE! That sounds a little more funny. ;o)

    That’s a hilarious little guy! I’m sure his mom loves that he told you that!

    Our ward has had a pregnancy/newborn boom and my baby obsessed daughter keeps asking where our baby is. Maybe we need to get on the clue bus too!

  5. Hilarious! It looks like schools around there are really getting a jump on the s*x ed!!

    Who knew? I guess that is how I got pregnant. I am going to have to remember that one in case I don’t want to get pregnant.

    Ha! Spoken like a real man!

    Like the Beatles song: “All you need is sperm, sperm…. Sperm is all you need. Sperm is all you need.”

    Seriously, though somebody should tell this kid about the importance of the Egg in the whole transaction. It’s not like we’re just sperm-incubators, YK? Feminism begins at home!

    Thanks for the tip! I’m sending this to my husband with a note that says, “See, I told ya so!”

    I knew we were doing something wrong.

    What kind of sex ed are 2nd graders getting over there?!? ; )

  14. leave it to the neighbors’ kids to reveal the secrets of the universe. Some very sound advice. 🙂

    Oh my word. That is hilarious. I hope Mille doesn’t learn that word for many more years. Many.

  16. Slap with a degree and invite him on a talk show. This kid could work miracles.
