Tonight at JoAnn’s I let the boys each get a new book (as if we need anymore books…). Their books are $3 and well, so what. Porter picked out a book about the horse’s life cycle.
So far I’ve skipped the first few pages because, well, I don’t want to have to explain to my 3 year old what “mating” and “in season” and “uterus” is…. EEEk. We’ve just skipped over to the fact that “VOILA! The baby horse has been born!”
As I was clipping his nails before bed we had the following conversation:
P: “Is Lia and Shae and Brenna girls?”
N: “Yes, they are”
P: “Is their daddy Uncle Don a boy?”
N: “Yes, daddies are boys.”
P: “And mommies are girls, right?”
P: “Why do I have a baby brother?”
N: “Because that’s what God chose for us to have. He decided Hudson was the perfect little baby for us.”
P: “And Hudson was in your belly?”
N: “Yes, he was.”
P: “How did he get in there?”
N: “How do you think he got in there?” (Good save!!)
P: (ponders this for a minute) “God put him in there. He put him in your mouth and you swallowed him down into your belly.”
Ok… that works.
P: “Did Hudson grow in your boobs?”
N: sure seemed like it…. “No, he was in my belly.”
P: “Did I grow in this boob and Hudson grew in this boob?” (pointing to each boob accordingly)
N: “No, you just grew in my belly. “
Well… that was an interesting conversation! HAHAHAA!
