Kids are smarter than you think
9-year-old Emily was given an assignment in school to write a story on "My family's ancestors" The purpose was for the kids to understand their heritage.
In search of some answers for her assignment Emily proceeded to interview her grandmother who was not aware of the reason for Emily’s questions.
When she asked her grandmother, "Granny, where did I come from," her grandma being quite nervous about talking with a kid about such a touchy subject in the absence of her parents wanted to buy some time and replied, "Well, sweetie, the stork brought you." Hoping that the subject would be dropped until Emily's parents came back she said no more.
"So, where did Mom come from?"
"The stork brought her also."
"Well, then where did you come from?"
"The stork brought me too, sweetie."
"All right, thanks, Granny."
Emily's grandmother did not think anything more about this incident until three days later when she was tidying up and looking at Emily’s desk, read the first sentence of her paper, "For three generations there have been no natural births in our family."
