Where Do Babies Come From?

People are always telling me about the show, "Jon and Kate Plus 8". Having never seen it before, I decided to check it out online and see what the fuss was all about.
While they were showing pictures of what her belly looked like with the sextuplets, Savannah happened to join me. The following conversation took place.
Savannah :"Mom, how did she get six babies in her tummy?"
Me: "Well, sometimes its hard for people to get pregnant so they take special "vitamins" (like I'm going to tell a four year old that they are taking fertility "drugs") to help them get pregnant. And sometimes, it makes them get lots of babies in their tummy. "
S: "Well, how did you get only one baby in your tummy?"
M: "I don't have to take those special vitamins, so I only have one."
S: "No, HOW did you get one in your tummy?"
Oh...! The realization hit me. How on earth do I explain THAT to a four year old? I have enough people who think I don't know where my babies come from, and now I have to explain it to my daughter!?
M: "Ummm... well... uh... Daddy put it there."
S: "Oh. How did daddy put it there?"
M: "....................................................................................................................... well............................ when two people get married, they love each other so much that sometimes it makes a baby!"
S: "Oh."
Whew! At least she didn't ask anymore questions.

Way to go Sarah! I probably would have given the same answer:-) I wonder when Audrey will ask me that same question? I might have to steal your answer for that one.
