"How did it get in there in the first place?"

This morning I was reading through some blogs that I follow.  This post by my favorite author just made my morning.  It also helped me appreciate my own recent "deer-in-the-headlights" experience in a whole new way.

About a month ago, all three boys had asked to look at their baby books (that is not uncommon). While they were browsing through the pages, my seven-year-old looked up from the ultrasound photos and asked, "But how did the baby get IN there in the first place?"

Until today, I hadn't thought to appreciate the fact that we were at home when the question popped-up, AND that no other adults were present to witness my uh, "phenomenal handling" of the inquiry. 

Next question, please!
