As I stood there trying to look calm, I was panicking about what to say to my four year old son who had just asked this question. And as panic was about to take hold he went on “Do they come out of a mom’s mouth or butt?” Ahhh, my sweet little boy….in a matter of 5 seconds he had sent me from panic mode to holding back my laughter as I tried to answer in a way he could understand. I think I did a pretty good job explaining in a clear, concise and age-appropriate manner that no, babies don’t come out of either of those places. And after my anatomically correct explanation he looks at me and says, “Ewww, I’m glad I’m a boy.”
That was the end of the conversation, but I guess I better prepare for the day when he asks me how the baby got into the mommy’s belly to begin with!
I’d love to hear how YOU have handled similar questions from your kids, what was your answer???by
