sisters and brothers

I settled the Kiddo into his carseat this afternoon, we were on our way to the grocery store. I buckled him in and gave him a quick kiss on the nose. I closed his door, walked around the car and got into the drivers seat. As I started up car we had this funny/sad conversation:

Him: Mom, did grandma and grandpa make you?

Me: Did they make me? No honey, Grandma and Grandpa made daddy, Grannie and Grampie in Arizona made mommie!

Him: Oh, okay so grandma and grandpa made daddy, and grannie and grampie made you, and you and daddy made me... is that right?

Me: um (thinking WHAT??!!) yep, that's how it all worked out.

Him: So, then you and me and daddy can make lots of kids huh!!

Me: (trying not to laugh) welllll, you don't get to help but yes, most mommies and daddies can make as many kids as they want.

Him: So if you made more kids then I'd have a brother and a sister!! That's a GREAT idea!!

That's about where I had to start explaining that it's hard for mommie and daddy to make kids, and we were really lucky when we made him which is why he is so special. Meanwhile I'm wracking my brain trying to figure out what show or movie he watched that make him think about this sort of stuff.
