This seems accurate.

I think some would disagree with the "few days later" bit. As I recall, my wife was pregnant for ages.

Did anybody notice the florescent light hanging from the headboard? I've never seen that before and it seems quite practical, but the downside is the sleeping mommy domino would have light in her eyes if the daddy domino was reading with that light on.

About right. Not bad for 6. A bit unremarkable though. I was looking for some kid lulz.

Those aren't dominoes, they're Punnet squares!

I think they underplay the considerable fun at the start.

Not to worry though, the internet has many instructive videos on the matter.

Babies come from brown and pink dominoes, just as God intended.

I thought that's where "pizza" came from.

Meet, like, kiss, fuck. Huh. She makes it sound so easy.

I came for a cutesy fake explanation, left impressed that the parent(s) didn't lie and give her a cutesy fake explanation. :)

Next: the same six year old explains her position vis a vis the insanity defense as it applies to cases of maternal filicide in Arkansas.

"Countless other dominoes had begged the mommy and daddy domino not to reproduce because there were already billions of dominoes lying around the house and there just wasn't the room or the resources to handle any more, especially privileged white dominoes that consumed roughly ten times what the others did, but mommy and daddy domino insisted that their baby domino was going to be fucking superdomino (despite the fact that mommy domino was a failing artist and that daddy domino's only major achievement in life was reaching middle management so baby domino's prospects were not great), and went on to have two other baby dominoes which left them in dire financial straits and led to strained relations and ultimately mommy matching five-dots with another lady domino."

I'm curious about any correlation between race and consumption? Obviously, americans consume a lot more than other nationalities, but it is really that divided by race?

Do white americans really use 10x the resources of black, latino, or asian americans?

I find that hard to believe.

I thought you got them from Amazon, delivered by Fedex.

I picked up this awesome book that used cut paper illustrations to explain reproduction (starting with flower, then chickens, then dogs, then people.) My daughter was kinda horrified by this book, but she did pick it up to read one day.

Then she comes running into the room, saying. "mom, mom, the book has it wrong! It says the man puts his penis in the woman!" I tell, her that the book is right. She looks dismayed and says, "I thought they just laid next to each other." I'm pretty glad we cleared that one up early on!

I love that she not only has the basic mechanics of sex down, but also a general understanding of genetics.

Also the obvious near-illiteracy of the people in comments telling the mom she should have blamed it all on Jesus is kind of amusing terrifying.

This times a million. That she understood genetics on some basic level impressed the hell out of me. I hope if I ever have a child, I can explain -- actually, hell, I'll just show them this video.

Yes, I was impressed at the basic accuracy, except for the "few days" thing. But that kid certainly knows how babies are made.

Somnolent Jack: ""This. Is. AMAZING! GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" said Somnolent Jack in almost a whisper."

That wasn't even remotely whisper-like.
