Taylor knows that babies are carried in mommy's tummys until they are ready to be born and she knows how they come out of the tummy too. She's 4 years old. We just haven't explained to her how the baby gets in the tummy yet because she hasn't asked about that part yet.

I told both my girls everything - eggs, periods, a boy's "P" and a girl's "V" ("P" and "V" for the readers - I actually told them the real words)...sperm and egg, the waiting period, what Mommy goes through, cravings, morning sickness ("all Mommies are different"), etc. Honesty is the best policy.
If they had more questions, they felt very free to come back to me and ask. That's how my Mom did it, and I appreciated her for that. Never had to learn from anyone else, and I don't want my girls to learn from anyone but me.

The movie we had to watch in 5th grade was AWFUL! ere we were, in the 1970's but stuck with a 50's movie. It was in black and white and some parts were animated! They never actually told how a woman got pregnant, but there was one part where the animated guy and girl were standing there talking and my friend told me that you could get pregnant from standing too close to the guy! Fortunately the teacher straightened out that misunderstanding.

"Mommy called the doctor and made an appointment. On the very special day, the doctor met Mommy and Daddy at the hospital and Mommy had an operation where the doctor took you out of my tummy. No, it didn't hurt because Mommy had lots of happy medicine first to make sure no pain was involved."
See? It's easy.
