It was a little girl's first day of school and her mother
was both excited and saddened to see her daughter
begin this rite of passage. She sent her daughter off
with a kiss good-bye and a promise of freshly baked
cookies when she got home.
Later that afternoon, the daughter comes running
through the door excited to see her mom. The mother
greets her and sits her down for some milk and cookies
- a beginning of a ritual that will follow them for many
days to come.
The mother says, "So tell me sweetheart, what did
you learn today?"
"Well," says the little girl. "I learned where babies
"You did," exclaims the mother with some concern. "What
did your teacher tell you?"
"Well, first this thing in the dad called sperm meets up
with this egg that's inside the mom and that becomes an
embryo. The embryo travels up through the mom's ovaries
and implants on her uterus. Then the embryo becomes a
fetus. The fetus grows in her womb for nine months and
then she gives birth to a fully developed baby."
"Wow!" the mother says. "Honey, I'm impressed that you
learned that so well."
"Yeah, but Mom, I just have one question," the little
girl says innocently. "How does the sperm and the egg
get together? Does the mom eat the dad's sperm?"
"Oh, no, honey," explains the mom. "That's only when you
want a new dress."
