Here's the 'sequel' to my earlier post titled "Of sperms, eggs and balls", the kids know how fertilisation occurs but has never gotten down to the details of where sperms actually come from.
My little 7 y.o. Eryn came up to me after dinner and said she's got a very interesting story to tell me. So, I sat with her and she took out her kids' magazine, 小星星 or Bintang SinChew, and showed me this page below.
She then went on to tell her story which goes like this :
"These are all the sperms and the fastest and strongest sperm will go to the egg in your body
and make a baby. Just like how the sperm, which was daddy, and the egg, which is inside your body,
meet and made me.
"The little egg baby will go inside your womb and slowly grow into a real baby and when the baby is ready
to come out, it will come out from this part (pointing to the vagina in the picture)".
I then proceeded to ask her, "Where did the sperm come from?"
She answered like a girl full of wisdom, "The sperm is quite invisible. It is very tiny, and you can't see it.
It's like the size of kutu (lice). Wait, it's more like the size of germs because you can still see kutu. This
sperm will go down your mouth and inside your tummy to find the egg."
I almost chocked on my guava hearing that! Gosh! Trying to be smart indeed. he he he....
She continued, "And only married people can have babies."
Earlier this year, Brendan's version of where sperms come from is from kukubird and two balls.
I wonder what new versions I'm going to hear.
