Explaining infertility and adoption to a five year old? Probably not.

In the petting zoo today:

Five year old friend: ” Do you have children?”

me: ” no”

five year old friend: ” But you’re married. Now you should have a baby.”

me: ” I would like to have a baby”

five year old friend ” Then you should have one”

me: “that would be fun”

five year old friend ” Is there one in there?”

me: “No, there’s no baby in there”

five year old friend ” Oh. Can I pet the ponies?”

Ah. If only nosy grownups were as easily satisfied with such basic answers!!!
