Having "the talk"

Anda and I had "the talk" about the facts of life a couple of days ago. She asked about it.

Most kids might ask something like, "Where do babies come from?"

Anda asked, "Mom, how do they ensure that the sperm gets close enough to the egg to guarantee fertilization in humans?"

That's funny! Eve also insisted on knowing exactly how it happened a week or so ago. Studying biology seems to spark the question. Eve had lots of extra questions about why only one sperm can get into the egg, about cell division and about twins. She was especially fascinated by the pictures of each stage of fetal growth.
