Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My 2 year old had to go "potty" last night so she came to get me. When she walked in my husband and i were having sex on top of the blankets. This morning she came down the stairs amd said: "hey mommy, why was daddys winer in your china last night?" what should i tell her?

just tell her that that's something moms and dad do at night and she shouldn't walk in your bedroom at night without knocking. the more vague you are the better. i remember when i was little, one of my family members was pregnant and i asked my mom how the baby got in there. she just told me that her husband put it there and i didn't ask anymore questions. you'd think i would've asked how he put it there, but i was 4. when kids are that young, everything you tell them is true. 
I agree be vague with your answer. She isnt wondering about all the details its just a simple question. So give her a simple answer. I also think once kids reach a certain age to start teaching them about privacy. Id start by when you go to walk in her oom stand at the door & knock on it to announce youre there. Then teach her that before she walks into mommy & daddys room that she needs to knock too. Hopefully she picks up on it quickly & theres no more personal time interuption besides maybe a simple knock.
