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. =:)
As a child, I was given the same talk as you with seeds only my Christian parents added the 'and God waters it to make it grow'.

The problem is that already in kindergarten, I had learned about 'putting the car in the garage' and similar childish euphemisms, and at that point I pretty much knew what my dad was talking about and thought his metaphor of using plants was stupid.

I think if my parents had their way, I'd remain seven years old the rest of my life.
