My 5-year-old daughter thinks she has it all figured out. This is her explanation:
- Step 1. Someone wants a baby.
- Step 2. That person tells someone, anyone they want a baby. (at this point, she tried to get me to say out loud that I want another baby)
- Step 3. God puts a baby in the mommy's tummy.
- Step 4. The baby grows.
- Step 5. The baby is born.
If she asked, I would tell her the truth, but she hasn't asked yet. Although this morning she asked me how cows get babies. I'm sure she'll be wanting more details soon. In the meantime I love how she works it out on her own.
And then my 3-year-old son says he wants a brother. But not just any brother. He wants my friend's 7-year-old to be his brother.
