In the continuing saga that is Princess and reproduction V

Last week, Princess read a children's picture book about My Body that was probably supposed to be appropriate for four year olds in this whacked world, but which she probably shouldn't have read. I caught her too late. Stupid library books.

She pondered for two days before the following question emerged.

"Mom, if the baby grows in the woman....why does she have to be married to have it?"

Me: (pregnant pause) Because it needs part of the daddy. (pregnant pause)

Princess: Nod. (looks away)

It's coming. Oh, joy, it's coming. *groan*
