It’s bound to get a little awkward anytime a kid asks the old “where do babies come from?” question, but one teacher is being praised for handling it like a pro. Nancy Bullard, a science teacher from Charlotte, North Carolina, was giving her second graders a chance to ask questions when she returned from maternity leave and the kids were very inquisitive. A viral TikTok video that she captions “I love my job,” shows how the classroom Q&A went down.
The clip shows things started off innocently, with students asking about Bullard’s newborn. The teacher got questions about whether her baby had ever cried before, when he would be walking and what his favorite foods are, and then one of the seven- to eight-year-olds dropped the question of all questions.
When the kid asked, “Where do babies come from?” the science teacher didn’t skip a beat in providing a quick response. “They come from an organ called your uterus,” Bullard replied. Her straightforward answer is being praised on TikTok, with many complimenting her on handling the potentially sticky situation with ease.
