    give birth

    My kid asked what I (daddy) contributed his birth. Can I say both daddy and mommy gave birth to you or only mommy gave birth to you? I don't want to mention something like sperm or egg. How can I answer his question in a simple way?

    Re: give birth

    No,only a woman can actually give birth. You could say something like "We both gave you life."


    Maybe you could say something like "Well, mommy gave you your eyes, and I gave you your nose" or some variation of that nature?

    Edit: Or if you want to try and be funny, say "Daddy contributed money."
