PunditGirl: Mom, why don’t you and dad like Rick Santorum?

Me: Well, remember a couple of years ago, when we talked about how babies get made?

PunditGirl: Yeah ….

Me: And remember how you got all worried and said, “But Mom, what if I don’t want to have a baby?  What if I want to wait?  Or not have a baby at all?”

PunditGirl: Mm-hmm ….

Me: And your dad and I said, “Don’t worry, there’s a pill for that.” And that made you not worry so much?

PunditGirl: Yessss…..

Me: Well, Rick Santorum wants to take that pill away.

PunditGirl: (eyes widen to the size of saucers) Well, THAT’s not good!

No it isn’t, my sweet.

How are you explaining this birth control craziness to your daughters?

Also, I’ve been nominated again this year for Top Political “mom” blogger.  I would love your vote and support (and you can vote once each day!)
