Look out for Mr. Stork...

Today my kids were watching Dumbo, and Nico asked me "Why do they sing 'Look out for Mr. Stork'?"

I remembered that Dumbo has a cute number in the beginning where storks are bringing babies to all of the animals in the circus

"That's a little complicated," I said, trying to figure out how to explain that some parents -- instead of telling their kids the real story of the how babies are made -- like to make up crazy stories about storks, cabbage patches, etc.

So I just said, "In this movie, instead of babies being born, they're delivered by storks."

Nico thought about that for a second, then said "yeah."
