Birds and bees with a 4-year-old

Jack: "Mommy? Why are there little balls under my penis?"

Me: "Well, those are so you can make babies someday."

[Look of alarm, bordering on fright]. "The balls are going to turn into babies!? They're baby-balls?"

"Well, no. There are things inside them that help make babies."

[Look of deep relief]. "Oh. Okay." And went back to his day.
