Some of you may be on Anna's mailing list. For those who aren't, this is what she sent out today. The title is "lesson of the day-babies do not come from storks."
Tonight at dinner, I learned where babies really come from..........the swimming pool, of course. The conversation went something like this:
Phyllis and Raia(3 yrs. old) were discussing why Raia has to take the stickers off her arms and legs before going to church. Raia turns to me,
"Tyotya(aunt), you won't do that with your children, will you?"
Phyllis-"She will when she has children."
Jaan(4 yrs. old)-"When will she have children?"
Phyllis-"After she is married and has a husband."
Jaan-"Oh, and he will buy her a swimming pool, so she can have children?"
For those of you who are confused, the explanation is quite simple. Both of Jaan's sisters came from swimming pools(home births-small pool in the living room), therefore all babies come from swimming pools. It was quite the educational dinner tonight.
