Lately, Ruby's been asking us, "How'd that baby get in your belly?" Umm…we were kind of shocked she asked but I can appreciate her curiosity.
A friend of ours said that Ruby might not be asking about the actual process of it, but more like how did the baby get in my belly versus another part of my body? So we've been telling her that mama's belly is a nice, safe place for the baby to grow until the baby is ready to come out. That answer seems to buy us some more time for now…
Now, the question is…how do you answer that question? I'm all about telling kids the truth about stuff, but I don't think a two year old really needs to know how that baby really got in my belly. What have you guys told younger kids when they ask this question? I am all ears!
Have a great holiday weekend!
