Funny Conversations Kids Have With Parents

Lil Community: My Daughter Needs Birth Control!

Motherhood can be a mind-boggler! Betty Wayne posted this funny conversation with her daughter in the Mommy Club group in the LilSugar Community.

When my daughter was about 4 she saw me taking my birth control pill and asked what it was. "Oh it makes me not have babies," I said, naively thinking it was a throw-away comment that she would never remember.

She's 6 1/2 now and a few days ago came to me in all seriousness, out of nowhere, and asked, "Mommy where do you get that medicine that makes you not have babies?"

"At the same place I get all my medicine." Face meets palm... now.

"Yes but where?" She asked again, urgently.

"At the pharmacy sweetie, why?"

Then she looked at me with a look of deep distress and said, "Mommy I need to get that medicine because I don't want to have a baby." I tried not to laugh as I explained that girls can't have babies until they're teenagers and promised to get her that medicine when she's big. Still worried she asked, "But mommy what if I forget?"

So I promised I would remember. Here's to hoping she's still open and eager to talk birth control when she needs it!
