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. =:)
 
 
 
 
 
 
I can't remember.

When junior school did it, it didn't come as a surprise, but it did leave me thinking that the reason parents only had a few children was that the male cycle didn't coincide with the female one very often.
*grin* An understandable conclusion. ^_^ (And, of course, true in some regard with some species, like the giant and red pandas, both with quite brief seasons, and such expansive domains, though humanity's doing what it can to contract those ranges)
