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. =:)
There was no explanation. I remember asking the question, there may have been a book sought from the library, but I really don't remember. At some point 'I just knew'!

Alas for a while after I didn't know what the term "make love" meant. So it's in hindsight I suffer embarrassment recalling while watching some program or other about native tribal people, one of them was talking about "making love". And I remarked something like "how silly, how can you make love?" There were exchanged smiles but no reply, which puzzled me further at the time! Oh dear.
