Weekend is the side view theme:
Both are weak, so it would seem,
For my head is badly fuddled
And my insides have got muddled.

While upstairs is out of touch,
Action down below, too much!
Answer that I therefore seekest:
Which weak end is now the weakest?


Four-year old has sought to know
How it is that babies grow –
‘In a tummy, with a seed?’
Asked if spade in there you need!

Probed with questions, more and more,
Mommy had to give the score –
Oh, so ‘girl and boy parts’  blend?
(Too much, now, one so wee kenned!)

    Hehehe. Wow, my sons have accepted the generic explanation of where babies come from. I’m not sure what I would have said if they inquired further at age four. Oh, wait, I know what I would have said: “Ask Daddy. He can explain it much better than I can.”


  6. 😀 Only you, Col, only you…..

    Even with all these weak ends and wee kenneds, you are NOT the week-est link!

    Thank goodness you can palm off that dreaded question to the mother-of-the-child.
