Let’s lighten it up today, shall we? I want to thank those who read yesterday for all commenting with respect for everyone else. I knew I liked my readers!
So, on the agenda for today…childbirth by Eric.
Eric: When you have a baby, does the doctor remove the baby from your belly?
Eric: But sometimes babies come out of your na-na.
Me: Yes, sometimes they do.
Eric: Did I come out of your belly or your na-na?
Me: You came out of my belly.
Eric: Did Ally come out of your na-na?
Me: No, she came from the same place you came from (starting to sweat a little)
Eric: Where? (ah, crap!)
Me: You came out of that line on my belly. (please let that be a good enough answer)
Eric: What line? (Damn!)
Me: Making a slashing line across my belly- that line on my belly.
Eric: How come I didn’t come out of your na-na? (hand slap to forehead)
Me: Finish your dinner (because you had a big frickin head!)
At the grocery store on Sunday- both kids in the front of the cart:
Eric: Did Aunt Kelly have her baby?
Me: Yes she did.
Eric: Did he come out of her na-na or her belly?
Me: He came out of her na-na.
Eric: Where do babies come from?
Me: Mommy’s bellies (please let it end there!)
Eric: How do they get in mommy’s bellies? (groan)
Me: Ummmm (nervous laughter), ummmmm (please don’t let the guy stocking soda hear this conversation), ummmmmm… a really special hug.
Eric: A special hug!!!
Ally: Na-na! (thank goodness for the immaturity of my three year old)
