Thursday Special ~ Purchased or Homemade?

Six year old Annie returns home from school and says she had her first family planning lesson at school.

Her mother, very interested, asks; “How did it go?”

I died of shame!” she answers.

“Sam from over the road, says that the stork brings babies. Sally next door said you can buy babies at the orphanage. Pete in my class says you can buy babies at the hospital.”

Her mother answers laughingly, “But that’s no reason to be ashamed.”

No, but I can’t tell them that we were so poor that you and daddy had to make me yourselves!




Thanks Ello for setting me straight, I thought I was found under a gooseberry bush!
