On the way to the library this morning Carson asked me, "How do you stop having babies?"
(I'm trying not to show shock on my face.)
M: What do you mean?
C: When you don't want anymore babies what do you do. I only want five.
M: Well... (I can't believe I'm having this conversation with a five year old!!) When the mom doesn't want anymore babies she can take some medicine so she won't have anymore babies. It's called birth control. (In retrospect I probably shouldn't have told him what it was called.)
C: OK. I don't care how many babies I have, I just don't want like 12.
I can't imagine what he might ask me when he's 10.
