A MEMBER OF W hen we asked Hudson Valley parents to share with us some of the funny quesitons or comments from their kids about the birds & bees, we got some pretty amazing responses! So many, in fact, that I wanted to use this space to share as many as possible: "When my 10-year-old son saw me changing his sister's diaper for the fi rst time, he said, 'Oh my gosh, she has two butts!' I was nearly in tears." — Danielle Garris, Kingston "We had the 'Where do babies come from' talk with our 7-year-old and 10-year-old. We said we found them under a cabbage leaf and brought them inside because they're so cute! My 7-year-old asked, 'Mom- my, can we fi nd a baby brother un- der the green bean plants? Because cabbage gives my brother gas and I don't want another brother with gas. I just can't take it!'" — Cortney Spencer, Dover Plains "My daughter decided on her own at age 3 that she (and her twin sis- ter) grew inside my belly until they just fell out one day and the doctor caught them. Then she answered her own question of, 'Dad, why do you have a carrot in your pants? Oh wait, I know. It's your belly button growing back.'" — Roxanne Ferber, Saugerties "I had to get an ultrasound of my neck, and my 4-year-old re- membered the last time I had an ultrasound, I was pregnant with her sister. Then she asked, 'Mom, did you swallow a baby?! Did it get stuck in your throat?!' She still tells everyone she meets that I swallowed a baby." — Melanie Codi, Bloomingburg "My daughter: 'Can I open and close my vagina?' Me: 'Sure, if you want to. Just go in your bedroom.' From the bedroom I hear, 'Open, close, open, close.'" — Carolyn Truocchio-Doderer, Newburgh "My 3-year-old son: 'Will I get boobies when I grow up?' Me: 'No, only ladies get boobies.' His reply: 'Hmph no fair!' (I should add that he was wearing my bra during this conversation!)" — Lindsay Berry, Florida "It wasn't so much what my 5-year-old son Fiorello asked, but rather his explanation of, uh, certain occurrences. Fiorello: 'Mommy, I think I know why my pee-pee gets big.' Me: (sighing) 'Why buddy?' Fiorello: 'Because I lie, like Pinoc- chio.'" — Heather LaBruna, Goshen "My girlfriend and I were hav- ing a mom and kids sleep over. I was changing my little boy and her daughter asked 'Why do boys have tails?'" — Tami Vontelzitlikeitis, Warwick Visit us online at birds-and-bees-quotes to read more hilarious quotes from our readers' kids, and to share yours! 'Why do boys have tails?' KATY WEBER Editor's Journal
