Innocence lost??

It happened. I knew it would and I did nothing to prepare myself. Last night we were sitting watching TV and James drops the BOMB!!
"Mom, how does the thing the grows the baby get inside the mom's tummy?"
I think I almost fell off the couch. I was floored. I just wonder what goes on in that kids mind. I even pulled out the "s" word. I have no idea on how to explain it. I tried the seed analogy and he just asked more questions. The kid wants straight forward answers. I feel as though I have warped my kids mind. Once we finished talking and explaining to the kid he was happy with the answer. I am not sure if he fully grasp everything, but we tried to explain the best we could on short notice. The kids thirst for knowledge is amazing.
