For those people who dropped by the blog expecting cupcakes recipes, I must apologise to you cause there ain’t any recipes in this blog post. Instead, you will find a mini cupcake learning about the birds and the bees or rather that he ain’t made by the birds and the bees. What a shocking revelation! 🙂
In the comic strip, it wasn’t easy for big brother cupcake to share with mini cupcake the process of how mini cupcake came about. But eventually he did with just enough information to satisfy mini cupcake’s curiosity. Of course, to avoid any further questions on the awkward topic, big brother cupcake quickly changed the topic. Smart move!
I suppose most people also find themselves in a similar situation, that it is awkward and difficult to share with their children on the birds and the bees. Parents may find themselves using either one or a combination of the following classic strategies if the topic came about:
“You are too young to talk about this. Let’s discuss this when you are older.” Well… that age never come.
“Kissing makes babies.” I mean come on, we all know that kissing doesn’t make babies. Babies are delivered by pelicans from mysterious places. That’s what they show in the cartoons and cartoons as you know are the absolute truth!
“Don’t do it. It is bad. You will rot in hell.” And you wonder why Pfizer has so many customers with equipment that ain’t working. It’s mental.
“Ask your teacher tomorrow.” It is simply easier to delegate such responsibilities to school teachers and the education program. And if the education program fails, lodge a complaint.
“Let’s us show you.” That is the worst of the 5. Don’t ever ever EVER attempt to show your children. Your children may be traumatised and damaged for life.
Well, if you are a uber-cool parent, you would not use options 1 to 5 but rather you would be using my cupcake doodles above to illustrate the concept to your children. But if you are a responsible parent, you may consider Fred’s post on this matter.
Have a good weekend! 🙂
