Question over breakfast this morning from my 6 year old…
“Mummy, why do chickens need a mummy chicken and a daddy chicken to make a baby chicken?”
Oh for goodness sake. It’s 7:15 and I’m being asked this…
“Well, the mummy chicken is needed to keep the egg in her tummy and the daddy chicken is needed to help the mummy chicken make the egg into a baby chicken instead of an egg we eat”.
Please, God, let that be an acceptable answer for him….
“Oh, right. And then the mummy chicken poo’s the baby chicken in the egg out of her bum doesn’t she” he says.
“Well, yes, pretty much” I reply.
“Did you poo me out of your bum?” he asks.
“Erm, no poppet, you didn’t come out of my bum…”
“That’s lucky, I’d have been really smelly and not nice to cuddle if that had happened. Lucky that.” he says as he continues munching on his marmite crumpet…
Yeah, lucky that.
Good lord, what a starter for 10 that was…is it time to go to school yet? 🙈
