My 4 year old daughter is obsessed with babies. When I told her that her best friend’s mommy has a baby in her belly she stared at the expecting mommy for a whole church service. She wanted to know when she could have a baby so I told her that she had to grow up and get married first. Now she is eagerly awaiting the day.
The other day at lunch she was talking to my 2 year old.
“You’ll go on the potty and wear underwear. Then you’ll grow up some more and get married. After you get married you’ll get a baby in your belly.”
The 2 year old pulled up her shirt and looked at her belly.
“Not inside your shirt. Inside your skin. You’ll have a baby.”
“uh-huh” agreed the 2 year old.
Guess all that other stuff in the middle just whizzes by.
