Baby talk

Conversation with Leah at bedtime:

We were talking about whose birthday is next (is that grammatically correct? whose?) and I told her it was Ian's. Here is how it went:

A: You know whose birthday will come before Ian's? Baby Weston's! (Tiff is ready to POP!)
L: Can I go see him when he comes home?
A: Sure. And after Andy's birthday, Ian's new baby brother or sister will be born.
L: When will my new baby brother or sister be born?
A: I don't know. There is no baby in my tummy yet.
L: Why not?
A: Because we haven't tried to have a baby yet.
L: Can we try tomorrow?
A: No, baby. But we will soon.
L: How does the baby get in your tummy? Is there like a control that puts them in there? (I guess she meant like a remote?)
A: Daddy helps put the babies in my tummy. He helped put you in there. He helped put Erin in there.
L: I didn't see him put Erin in there.
A: That's because it's a secret.
L: No, it's not, Mommy.
A: Oh, look at that! Song is over. Good night sweetie.

AHHHH! I got out of that one as delicately as I could. How much am I going to have to tell her? I want to be as honest as I can without giving too much info. Hopefully she won't remember to ask about it again tomorrow, but I wouldn't put it past her.

Ian knows that babies grow from teeny tiny cells in my tummy. But I never told him that Daddy helped. That's where you went wrong :)

I love that you said daddy helps! As far as Porter knows, magic happened (well I guess it kinda did ;) )And the girls just know that when a mommy and daddy REALLY love each other a baby happens. It is getting dangerously close to that time for the talk though!

LOL! Gotta love the curious ones. I'm with Tiffany - we told them when mommy and daddy love each other alot God puts a tiny little thing in mommy's belly and it grows into a full kid. Wait until she asks how the baby gets out...thats a fun one too!

Ditto, LeShayne! That answer was good enough for Kleven too! He then told me that babies "jump" out! When I asked how they jumped out, he told me "through your belly-button"! I just said "okay!"
