Sometimes, you just can't make this stuff up. I've had the "where babies come from" informational convo with Boy-Child#1 but there are some specifics I apparently didn't delve into.
Me: (to Mr. Farklepants) It seems like I'm getting my period like all the time now.
Mr. Farklepants: Really?
Me: Seems like every two weeks. But I'm not really keeping track.
Boy-Child#1: What's a period?
Me: Well, when a woman ovulates. Well. When the egg is ready to be fertilized, it's released from her ovaries and...
Boy-Child#1: Okay. Nevermind.
Me: ...it waits to be fertilized by the man's sperm.
Me: ...and when it isn't the woman's body gets rid of it.
Me: She bleeds for seven days out of her vagina.
