Where Do Babies Come From?

Question of the day from Jesse: "Did we come out of your bellybutton?"
Now that Seth and Jesse are seven years old and in second grade, I can't dissemble anymore when it comes to the topic of babies and their origins, right?
So, here's how skillfully (not) I handled it.
My reply: "Um, no."
Jesse: "Where, then?"
Seth (whispering to Jesse): "I think it's her privates."
Jesse: "Did we come out of your privates?"
Me: "Um, yes."
Jesse: "Did you have to pull your pants down?"
Me: "Um, yes."
Jesse: "Now I'm going to faint." Falls on floor in a heap.
Conversation over.
I'm off to Barnes and Noble to get the right books. Then my hub can take over.
