One afternoon a little girl returned from school and announced that her friend had told her where babies come from. Amused, her mother replied: "Really, sweetie, why
don't you tell me all about it?" The little girl explained: "Well ... OK ... the Mummy and Daddy take off all of their clothes, and the Daddy's thingee sort of
stands up, and then Mummy puts it in her mouth, and then it sort of explodes,
and that's how you get babies". Her mum shook her head, leaned over to meet her, eye
to eye and said, "Oh, Darling, that's sweet, but that's not how you get babies. That's how you get jewellery."
