Ken: "Did you know that Aunt Krista has a baby in her belly?"
Nathaniel: "No she doesn't"
Ken: "Yes she really does."
Me: "Yes I do. See, it's only a little bit squishy" (poking my belly in reference to them poking their "fat")
Nathaniel: "Well how did it get in there?"
A very short birds and the bees convo followed, which I will spare you, but Ken did a nice job comparing a seed that makes a tree to a seed that makes a baby.
Nathaniel (looking at me): "Are there two babies in there?
Me: "No, just one."
Nathaniel: "Then how come there are two bumps above the hill?"
Aaaah. Innocence. (And yes, I told him the truth about what those are used for.)
So no guarantees on the frequency of updating this blog. I do really enjoy reading other people's blogs so I will try to return the favor. Unfortunately, I don't use my camera much and the battery charger has mysteriously disappeared. I may have to resort to camera phone pictures.
p.s. One other funny kid story. I was babysitting a 6 and a 10-year old for a few days this week. I had this conversation with the 6-year old, Marc.
Me: Marc, did you know that I am going to have a baby?
Marc: No you aren't.
Me: Yes I am. See. Look at my belly. There is a baby in there.
Marc: No there isn't! You just eat too much food.
He totally called me out! (Later he retracted his statements and said he was just kidding. I don't think he was.)
p.p.s. Since creating the title for this post I now have the song "I Feel Pretty" from Westside Story stuck in my head. I bet you will too now.
