When I was pregnant with Arabella I kept waiting for one of the girls to ask either where do babies come from, or how do they get in their mommies tummies, however, no one did. I asked them one time where they thought babies came from and they responded from mommies tummies and that was that.
Well tonight MacKayla decided to ask "how do babies get into mommies tummies?" I wanted to be as honest with her as possible without giving too much away so I was thinking for a second. During this time James begins to discuss cellular mitosis to her. Wonderful answer, except you have to at least know what a cell is, so she was lost. So we sat and talked for a little while and gave a VERY basic idea of how babies are made. I was telling her about eggs and how all girls have eggs in their bodies that can grow and become babies and she looked at me quizzically and asked if the eggs hatched, it was cute.
After discussing how babies got into the bellies, she wanted to know how they got out. Annika started laughing and said "the hospital uses a big knife and cuts them out of the mommies." They have seen my scar and they know that for me babies are cut out. So I went on to tell her how babies come out, her eyes got real big and then she just rolled over and started laughing, the idea was of course preposterous to her.
Ah the innocence of youth...
