    @gorgeousgeorge That's how Mischief joined our family. A few weeks ago DS blatantly told me the reason I bought him Mischief was because my tummy wasn't working properly at making him a brother. And here I was thinking I was being smart!! Nup.

    @Tahli i think they always understand more than we think and they're more capable of understanding things than we credit them for.

    Oh and... congrats to all the pupo ladies today!!!

    No very valid comment and we do have a little dog who is such good company he has been fantastic for her she even calls him her little brother so he does appease her loneliness in a doggie way ..... she is actually begging for another puppy which isn't such a bad idea even the dog needs a dog companion for when we are at work/school. He goes crazy over other dogs at the park or sees them on TV he jumps up excitedly and barks and will watch for ages lol.

Then explain that mummys eggs and/or daddy's seeds dont work/arent any good but you are trying to make them work with help from the dr. ??? Maybe she would understand that and she might be less frustrated and more empathetic if she had some explanation? BUT mate, i dont have kids or much to do with 6 year olds so i dont really know what im talking about and if that would would work for you. Was just trying to think of some suggestions :-) And get lots of kittens anyway xox
    i must have missed this but I absolutely love it and will def have a conversation to give her some sort of answer. No wonder you are a teacher you have a way of understanding a young persons mind.

    @Jazzabelle13 nah didn't learn that through experience just been reading a book about how parents told their kids about donor conception from as early an age as possible. And they also mentioned things about having discussions about the difference between 'secrecy' and 'privacy', the idea that it's not a secret (i.e. implying theres something 'wrong' with the info) but the idea that some info is 'private' and that means we only talk about it with certain people/family/ mummy and daddy or whoever you (the parents) decide its ok to tell, lol, thought I'd better add that assuming you probably dont want her talking about mummys eggs and daddys seeds for show and tell or to check out chicks at the supermarket etc...or get a phone call from parents/teachers saying we didnt really want our kids to know that. Thd book sad to say something like, everyone elses mummy and daddy want to have their own talk with their kids, so its 'private'. :-) Mate, if it ever happens for me, ive still got no idea how to explain to mine and dh's student's about it and ive been mulling it over for more than 6 months. Im cool with it but dh prob doesn't need me talking to teenage boys about his 'seeds' ;-)

    this book sounds amazing ...... lol I just cracked up at the possible discussion she could have afterwards with her class and yes the privacy vs secrecy it's a definite must I'm cracking up as I type this thinking of her teachers face if it came up. If it really came up of course I would be floored!
