things that make you go, hmmm...?

    As I sit on the couch with my sweet little guy, he is hugging and snuggling all over me.  I am laying on the couch, still in my jammies and glasses, checking my Facebook on my phone.  He snuggles, and asks "are you done yet mommy?"  Me  "No bud, but I will be in just a minute, why?" Colin  "I want to push the house button and play Birds." Me "Ahhh, I see. Well Mommy is using her phone right now, so you have to wait your turn." Colin "OK, Mommy...You have very beautiful glasses...and soft hair."  Is the kid actually trying to butter me up?  Yes, I think he is.  Me "Well thank you Colin, that is very sweet."  Colin "yeah...are you almost done with your game?" Me "Almost buddy, but you need to wait patiently."  Colin "Mommy, (as he pets my breast and stares at them), has the baby come out of your boobies yet?"  Oh dear...I think my discussion of breasts and their purpose has gone terribly wrong.  Me "Ummm...No Colin.  Babies don't come out of boobies.  Mommies just use them like bottles to feed their babies when they are small.  Babies come out of bellies." Colin "Oh,  I have a belly, can I have a baby."  Me "Nope, just girls can make babies in their bellies." Colin "Molly is a girl, can she make a baby in her belly." Me "Well...no, not until she is a grown up, only grown up girls can make babies.  And God knows she better wait until then." Colin "Huh?" Me "Nothing bud.  Mommy needs to start the coffee, desperately, would you like a cup of chocolate milk?" Colin "OK mommy.  You are a grown up girl, right.  Can you have a baby in your belly?"  That coffee may need a shot of something, and it is only 9 am. Me "Hey look, the Backyardigans are on..."
    This is one curious little guy...please tell me I am not the only one fielding these questions with their four year old??

  1. Nope - my four year old asked me last night "How did I get out of your tummy?"

    1. I think I can come up with a pretty decent answer for that one :) I am just worried about when he asks about how babies get in their mommies bellies

  2. Wow, so glad that's not me...

    My son is 16 now and I am pretty sure he either knows or just doesn't care!

    1. Honestly, I think I would prefer the simplified version to a toddler over the possible discussion with the 16 year old...I see way too many teenagers in my line of work. I might just take Colin to Sears, and have his dipped in the stuff that puts rubber grips on tools at the age of 15, and put a padlock on my daughters pants around the same age...
