    Haha!  Yes, this came in handy when I was suddenly confronted with a “birds and the bees” type question that I was not prepared to explain on the way to preschool…certainly without my morning caffeine.  A lengthy description involving cells, fertilization, blastulas, zygotes and embryos solved that problem.  Long winded scientific explanations and young kids?  It’s akin to vampires “glamoring” humans!

    Dissolve means to melt in liquid, the end.  Lol. I have an entire arsenal of these easy explanations courtesy of my sister and her having been a parent first. You should have heard what I told my 5 year old nephew when he asked me how babies get out of “the vagina” I about had a heart attack. My sister’s mantra is “keep it simple, stupid” haha. And her son is going to complete 2 yrs of algebra before graduating HS and was coding in C++ at age 12 so it didn’t hinder him any!
