"Dad, how was I born?"

I have two boys who are of an age where they are curious and inquisitive. I am now half-expecting them to ask THE big question anytime soon.

How will I answer it? Should I be straight to the point and bore them with biological terms they can hardly understand? Or should I be creative and indirect by talking about the birds and the bees?

I suspect I will use the latter option above. But, how do I say it in a way my kids can relate to? I have to use words to which my sons can understand.

I did not have to wait long. I got a timely advise from my former university professor in the form of an e-mail. The language it uses is definitely something my kids can understand.

Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo.

Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe.

We sneaked into a secluded room, where your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive.

As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall!

And since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later a little Pop-Up appeared that said:
