So I'm taking my daughter home from school and she asks me, "Daddy, how do you spell buy?"

I tell her, "Well, there are three different words that all sound the same. There's 'by', like 'the book is by the author.' That's B-Y. And there's 'buy,' like 'you buy something at the store.' That's B-U-Y. And there's 'bye,' like 'bye-bye.' That's B-Y-E."

And she says, "What about 'bi,' like 'bisexual'?"

My wife just had the talk with her about menarche about a month ago so she won't be surprised or scared when it happens.

BTW, here's a good book for kids around that age if they want something to read for information they're embarrassed to ask about:
