Tell one child about the birds and the bees and they'll be spreading the information on to all their younger siblings. No matter how many times you tell them that their younger siblings are not old enough for that information yet.
And thus while I was giving the girls a bath last night I got asked by the three year old, "Why does Daddy sometimes stick his [redacted]?" Well now...
I explained what I'd explained before that husbands and wives do that because they love each other and because it makes babies.
The five year old then got a thoughtful look on her face and asked, "If that's how babies are made, do the doctors have to watch to make sure the baby gets made?" With visions of my OB staring on (ew), I tried not to giggle and told them that it was a private time between only the husband and wife.
So far they haven't started explaining the facts of life to complete strangers, which their father apparently did when he was a wee lad.
