Kid's say the darndest things!
Okay I LOVE the reasons children at all ages give for why and how babies are born and/or conceived. I was picking up my girls from daycare when this little girl, Michelle said that her mom was in labor at the hospital at that very moment. The DC provider said that yes she was and that she was having another little boy (Michelle was the only girl and she has two other brothers not counting the newbie). This other little boy who is 3 1/2 has this great philosophy on things. He got in an argument with my 3 1/2 year old at Christmas because Julia said that she was leaving milk and cookies for Santa and carrots for the reindeer, Elijah shouted back, "SANTA doesn't drink MILK!" Elijah is lactose intolerant...ha ha so has been informed differently. So Elijah proceeded to tell me that his mommy "put a baby in HIS tummy and then put him in HER tummy and then he came out and was a baby". I laughed, but then the oldest boy out of the group expecting their new brother (he's 7) said, "NO THAT ISN"T HOW! Your mommy eats and you get in there!" As he would know being the oldest of what was soon to be 4 kids right?
Now, yesterday, Julia pushed up against my tummy with her head (she was resting her head on my lap) and I told her she better watch it that one day the baby doesn't kick her in the head. Miss Know-it-all shouts back, "The baby has no legs Mommy!". So I whip out this picture of a 14 week old fetus that I had in my purse (I print pictures of my gestation regularly to show DF what his new one looks like at each stage) and she was soooo amazed.....for all of 2 seconds. And then that was the end of it. These kids crack me up!
