Actual, frustratingly long entry coming soon. ^_^

Meanwhile, I was curious.. if it's not terminally embarrassing (or even if it is =:) - how did your parents explain How Babies Are Made to you?

In my case, it was my mother who explained that Dad had put a seed inside her. O.o;

Which.. well, no, didn't really explain very much. All I thought of was the racks of seeds in gardening shops, and even I knew that didn't quite seem right. It's not that I was shielded, though - a year or so later, I was reading a children's guide to it all, well illustrated. All seemed rather squishy and icky, so I didn't pay such matters any mind for several years. =:)
Nothing.  No "The Talk" at all.  My brother got Everything you Wanted to Know About Sex but were Afraid to Ask out of the library — my mother confiscated it, apparently out of a belief that boys won't be boys if they don't find out how.
O.o; Wow. I suppose it's sort of touching, to see such innocent concern, but.. good grief, that's not a great decision. =:P

Not, of course, that that stops many a politician from behaving precisely the same way, just with awfully more authority.
