this morning as we were getting ready for the day, jakob ever so cooly asks me...
jakob: "how do babies get into mommies tummy's?"
mom: "um (big gulp) well, when mommies and daddies love each other and get married, they get to have babies." ( i knew this wouldn't be good enough for him, but i had to try)
jakob: "but how do they get into the mommies tummy?"
mom: (thinking i'm getting a little smarter by the minute) that's how God wanted babies to grow. (and repeated) when mommies and daddies love each other they get to have babies and God decided He wanted them to grow in the mommies tummy."
mom: "that's just the way God wanted it."
jakob: "oh, so God takes His big hand that stretches like the Xmen and reaches down and puts the baby in there."
mom: (pauses and wonders if i should just leave it at that, but gives a little more info to keep his mind preoccupied) "well, mommies and daddies get to be together and have babies and yes, God puts the baby in the mommies tummy."
jakob: "oh and i get to see sesame street live on saturday with poppa."
mom: (inside screaming YES!!!! we have eased by the first "sex" talk successfully)
and on with the day, no more mention of babies and how they get there. i tell you what, i'm gonna have a hard time NOT explaining things to this kid. i can only pray he sticks with dinosaurs and superheros until he's 16......
i know, i know......
