You would not believe some of the conversations I've had with my kids. Last night, I had a rather interesting one with my teenage daughter. I was helping her study for a science test which involved discussing the topic of reproduction.
"Did you know that men can produce milk?" she asked.
"No they can't!" I said.
"Yes, they can. Look." She pointed an article she found on the internet. "They have the hormones to do it. I bet if a baby sucked hard enough, some milk would come out."
I tried very hard not to laugh. "I bet in the whole history of the world, there has not been a single man who has produced one drop of milk for a baby!"
She was very insistent. "But they have the ducks to do it!"
(She quickly caught her mistake, and we both started laughing. So much for that study session!)
Do the ducks know about this?ReplyDelete
I am guessing they don't. ;0)Delete
LOL ducks that milk men. Now there's something you don't hear every day.ReplyDelete
It's a first at my pad!Delete
I don't think I'm even going to touch that line...ReplyDelete
Hahaha! Right. Nothing more to be said!Delete
*LOL* Ducks have that magical effect, I suppose!ReplyDelete
Ducks are magical creatures!Delete
well we do have the milk glands but no hormones to trigger themReplyDelete
Supposedly you do, but the amount of those hormones in your body is so low, that it is highly unlikely you will ever produce one drop of milk. ;0)Delete
Men just don't have their ducks in a row I guess lolReplyDelete
Haha! It would be funny to see what would happen if those ducks ever lined up!Delete
I still have interesting conversations with my children. Talking to them is always the highlight of my day, my month, my year, my whole life.ReplyDelete
It's funny to see how their brains work, and to think that you helped produce such offspring!Delete
Men had better beware... they've become 'sitting ducks' LOLReplyDelete
Ha! At least according to my daughter they are!Delete
If a baby sucked hard enough, some milk would come out? Say it ain't so!ReplyDelete
I don't think I'd test that hypothesis if I were you! ;0)Delete
Can they? Don't think so...but ducks maybe...*ponders*ReplyDelete
I think we'd better look this one up on the internet. ;0)Delete
Let's see if those men are up to telling the truth. They can bring their ducks. Very funny.ReplyDelete
Babies might like the ducks. ;0)Delete
Wouldn't want to be on the recieving endReplyDelete
Yes. I don't think it would be pleasant!Delete
I've heard the same thing. I also heard that guys are sensitive like girls. I'm not going to be the one to test either theory.ReplyDelete
Ha! I don't blame you!Delete
lol- Kids definitely give us a fresh perspective on things. :)ReplyDelete
You never know what they're going to come up with!Delete
HA! That quacked me up.ReplyDelete
Her curiosity is trying to explore the world and as a mother you should help her to explore like you did. Great mummy.ReplyDelete
Lol. I'm going to laugh today if I hear someone say ducks.ReplyDelete
I bet you're never going to look at a duck the same way!Delete
When I stop laughing maybe I can think of something to say. :)ReplyDelete
The visual on that is rather comical isn't it? ;0)Delete
Hee, hee! I'll never think of ducks in the same way again!ReplyDelete
That's exactly what I'm thinking!Delete
At least your kid stood by her claim for a while, some insistence I might add. That's great character :)ReplyDelete
She knows her mind!Delete
