So, if the following conversation would have occured with an adult rather than an adorable 8 year old blonde girl in pig tails, I think I would have broken down....

I was tutoring a second grader today and decided to do a cute Mother's Day poem activity....can you guess where this is going?!?!

Half way through, she looked at me and started this converstaion: (we'll call her BG for Blonde Girl)

BG- "Are you an adult?"

me- "What do you think?"

BG- "Yes.... are you married?"

me- "yes"

BG- "Do you have any kids?"

me- "No. Not yet."

BG- "Well, why do you just go and get pregnant??"

me- (smiling back at her innocence) "Hopefully one day I will be."

BG- "Well go make out with your husband and you will get pregnant!"

me- "Okay, let's get back to your poem for your mom!"

GEEZE!!!  If that was how easy it could be, RE's wouldn't be in business!!

Then yesterday one kid said to me, "Luis says that you're
