Sentimental Sunday Early Hero Story How Babies are Made

When our first daughter became old enough to explain the facts of life to her, the Hero told me the story of what happened the night his father talked to him.
He was about 8 years old and the family was at the dinner table having a spaghetti dinner. His oldest sister was sitting across from him and having a conversation with their mother about a young man at school.  The Hero decided he would join in with the conversation and said, "I know how babies are made.  The boy kisses the girl and they swap germs and the baby is made."  His sister just stared at him and his mother stifled a giggle.  All of a sudden, he felt his father's hand on his shoulder and a quick, "Come with me, we are going to have a talk."  He quietly followed his father into the living room, and received the "talk."  He would always give a giggle and a wink when telling the story and say, "I guess it was okay.  We have six children."
Funny Bunny wasn't he.  ; )
