The Birthing of a Bambi

Most four-year-olds have questions.  Instead, Piper has answers. At dinner tonight she explained what she learned from watching Bambi about how deer have babies.

  “Well, it’s complicated, really,” Piper began. “You need some water. Then you shove some hooves into the mama deer’s belly.  Then, you add the water. Voila.”

“So, it’s like those foam pellets that expand in the water and become toys?”

“Exactly,” she confirmed. “Stop laughing at me, Sissy!”

Sissy, who actually knows how deer have babies, couldn’t help herself.

My partner couldn’t resist, either. “What does the buck do?”

“He just waits on top of the mountain.  What else would he do?”

I’m certainly not going to answer that one.
