I almost wet my pants laughing as I tried to explain that that’s not how it works.” —Angela W, 40

I was ready to shrug it off and continue but then a nearby zookeeper said, ‘Actually that’s how they make babies.’ My son looked at her, then looked at me, then looked at his little brother and then back at me again before yelling, ‘Is that what you and daddy did to get Charlie?’ I died.” —Jess M, 32
