Last Tuesday. In the dining room. Dinner time. Owen putting napkins on the table, with Husband's help.
Owen: Dad, guess what!
Owen: Chloe's mom is having a baby!
Husband: She must be so excited.
Owen: Yes, she is! I'm excited, too!
Husband: I bet.
Owen: Daddy, how do you make a baby?
Owen (thinking Husband did not hear him): Daddy, how do you make a baby?
Me (from kitchen): Mommies and daddies make babies, Owen.
Owen (pausing): Oh! I want to watch Chloe's mommy and daddy make a baby. Daddy, can I go to Chloe's house and watch them make a baby? Daddy, how do they make a baby?
(Tween snickers in the background.)
Husband: Well, that's something we'll talk about when you're older. Owen, would you like to put the forks on the table?
Fortunately, Owen is easily distracted.
