The Baby Store

Because a couple of his classmates have new siblings and because our godson, X, has a new baby brother, Josh told us that he wanted one, too.

Josh: "I already have a baby sister. I want a baby brother now."
Me: How are we going to get you a baby brother?
Josh: The doctor will put the baby in your tummy.
Really? From where will the doctor get the baby?
Josh: Well, the doctor will go to a baby store, buy the baby, and put him in your tummy.

Easy-peasy, apparently.

Where do your children think babies come from?

We have had a lot of friends have babies lately. My 6YO thinks you can just walk out of the hospital with them.

Aha! The beginning of the long journey. I will spare you all a preview of the conversations you will eventually have with your 20-year old:).

My Joshee used to think I just go to the hospital. Now that he saw a lot of preggy moms in our neighborhood, he thinks I just go into the hospital and then it grows in my tummy....

So are you having another one?

That is classic!! The baby store! My kids know that the baby comes in your stomach-but don't totally get how it get's there yet!! That is too funny! So is he going to get another brother/sister?!

I often wonder where babies come from myself!

I came by to welcome you to SITS! We're happy to have you with us!

B's speech therapist is preggers now, and B is INTENSELY curious about it. We are having lots of conversations about "the baby in Ms. Amy's tummy." And the woman is maybe 4 months along. It's gonna be a LONG summer! ;)

I look forward to reading what you said to him...10 years from now. :p My cousin had this conversation with his 5 year old son. The little tot was given the whole scientific explanations. Then nodding sagely, he turned to mummy and asked, "can we go buy sperm now and make me a baby brother?" LOL
