Around Christmas time in the car when we spot a decorated tree in our town square….
Me: See that ribbon on the top? Isn’t it pretty?
Kiki: Yeah but why don’t they have a star?
Me: Some people put stars on top, some put ribbons, and some put angels on top.
Me: Yep, when I was little Nana had a angel for the top of our tree.
Kiki: Was I there?
Me: Nope. It was before you were born.
Kiki: Was I in your belly?
Me: Nope it was before you were even in my belly because it’s when I was really little.
Kiki: How does the baby get out of your belly?
Me: Um. Well they just come out when they’re ready.
Kiki: Yeah, but how? I mean your belly is made of bones and stuff so how does the baby get out?
Me: Well…(totally stalling while I try to decide how to respond).
Kiki: Does it come out of your mouth?
Me: No. You know that opening in your lady parts (yes, I call it her lady parts)?
Me: That’s where the baby comes out.
Kiki: Does it come out when you go potty?
Me: No, it…
Kiki: Ha! Just kidding. I know a baby doesn’t come out when you pee. That would be weird.
Me: You usually have a baby at the hospital with a doctor to help. You were born in a hospital.
Kiki: Was I scared in the hospital?
Me: No, probably not. You were too little to really understand what was going on.
Kiki: Oh. Ok. Can I have a snack?
