There are several reasons why elementary school teachers are among the most well regarded in the profession. This popular TikTok video shows one of them, when a teacher effectively responds to the question, “Where do babies come from?”
Mrs. Nancy Bullard’s TikTok video is proof positive that “kids say the darndest things.” It’s funny, but it’s also very cute. On her first day back at work after maternity leave, Mrs. Bullard taped a Q&A session with her pupils.
A slideshow of images of her son, Sam, was the first thing she showed the class, and they were all over it. One of the most adorable vids ever, if I do so so my self.
Then, things take a turn.
When questioned, “Are you teaching him to walk?” Mrs. Bullard explains that Sam is just three months old, so he spends much of his time napping and grinning at the camera.
“Does he sleep with you or does he sleep in bed with his dad?” All night long, Sam sleeps in his own crib.
“What kind of food does he eat?” Thank you to the one child who correctly predicted “applesauce.”
Things take a hilarious turn at this point.
“Is it difficult to have a baby?” It’s encouraging to hear Mrs. Bullard say it’s “pretty tough.”
As a result, one of the pupils reported the replacement for Mrs. Bullard, who had anticipated that she would not return to work following the birth of her child. The youngsters are obviously pleased that they were able to disprove the sub’s theory here.
“Where do babies come from?” is the big question.
If you’re a parent, teacher, or someone who cares about children, you’ll dread this question. In no way am I implying that there’s any shame in this game, but it may be tough to convey the subtleties of conception and all that precedes it in an age-appropriate manner.
However, Mrs. Bullard gets it right the first time: “They originate from an organ called your uterus.”
They do indeed. Yes, they do. That’s all there is to it. All that’s required of you is to read this. To satisfy their interest, you just respond with simple science and move on to another topic promptly.
