The Birds And The Bibles

(I’m an au pair in Ireland. I’m bringing the six-year-old girl I’m minding to bed. Earlier that day I told her about a friend of mine who just had a baby. The family is very religious.)

Child: “So, do you have babies?”

Me: *not thinking* “No, I’ve been careful.”

Child: “What do you mean?”

Me: “Well you know, when a man and a woman— Wait. Do you know where the babies come from?”

Child: “Yes. God puts babies in mummy’s tummy.”

Me: *panicking* “Um, well… I don’t have babies because I told God that I didn’t want any.”
