Birds and bees talk postponed due to ongoing election coverage

(To set the stage: The NBC Nightly News is on in the background.)

Bug: Mom, why are the baby’s feet up here in your belly and the head is down here?

Me: Because the baby is getting ready to come out in a few weeks and she’s trying to put herself in the right place to do it.

Bug: Oh. I wish I could catch her when she comes out.

Me: You do?

Bug: Yeah, I would be good at that, Mom.

(pause)

Bug: But Mom, wait. Where is she gonna come out?

Me: Ummmmmmmmm….

Ann Curry: Today in the Obama campaign…

Bug: MOM! OBAMA!

Me: Yeah? You know Obama?

Bug: Yeah! Obama! MOM! IT’S LIKE BAHAMAS! OBAMA BAHAMAS!

Me: Yes! Let’s talk about how Obama is like the Bahamas!

Bug: OBAMA BAHAMAS! OBAMA BAHAMAS! OBAMA BAHAMAS!

Awesome! LOL

I recommend the book “Where Did I Come From”. It rocks the B&B talk.
