 But if I find the stairs I will let you know...

Four is just an amazing age! I am so greatly entertained by it. We waited to tell the boys the news that they would all be big brothers until after our ultrasound. It was so fun to tell them. K, in his typical laid back, mellow fashion said "OH!" smiled big and went back to his computer. Noe's huge blue eyes looked right into mine and clear as day said "But I'm your baby mom!" Well yes you are, my dear little cuddle bug. By all means, you are. I did not know that you would grasp this all so quickly and have such an immediate and honest retort. But Jay, oh my! He spiced up the evening with one of the best conversations I have ever had in my life! "Mom, is the baby going to grow? In there??" His little finger motions near my belly. "Yes Jay, mommy is going to get bigger." "Mm hmm." Pause. Eyes scan my body. Processing. "Mom, how will the baby get out?" "Um, well Jay, Mommy will... mommy will have to ...push the baby out." "Mmmm." pause "Mom, will the baby walk out? Is there steps?" "Well, um, yeah - about that. There's not steps. It's more like... a slide. Kind of." I throw my "a little help?!" look over to Dave who sat in the corner of Jay's bed room with the silliest little smirk on his face. "Mom?" Guys, at this point I was not sure whether I was going to laugh or cry and had NO idea what the next question would be! "Yes Jay. Sweet little honey. What can I answer for you?" "Is there a door mom?" Dave then lets out the most inappropriate little laugh and says, "kinda". Not helping!

Oh, my, how cute! I try to be honest when it comes to those questions, without giving too much details! LOL! I love how they try and figure those things out, but sure wish it wasn't so hard explaining!

Congratulations, and will love seeing the pictures as you grow ;)

Now why am I not surprised that it was sweet inquisitive little Jay that came up with this boatload of questions! Hahaha! This totally just made my day. Oh, I wish it were a nice easy little "slide"....wouldn't that be sweet.

But Noe - oooh, he comprehended it right away - who would've guessed that??

no help at ALL!

I'm glad that all I had to explain was that the dr. would put medicine on mommy's tummy and then take the baby out.

I had a first grade class when I was pregnant with Avery, and had to say, "ask your mommy!" a lot!

Oh my gosh, that was hilarious! Submit it to Dose of Humor :)

When my sister was pregnant, her then four year old noticed her expanding belly and it all just sunk in for him. He asked her to pick him up and he got very close to her face and said slowly and quietly, "Mommy...why did you EAT a baby?"

Oh no... ;)

Too funny!! I love it. But yet don't look forward to dodging those questions myself. :)

Anne Elizabeth said...

That is too funny!

Amanda said...

i most definitely NEED to meet mr. funny man in person...this cracked me up! maybe he and elizabeth can compare notes on the baby's growth and arrival technique. elizabeth bumped into my nose this morning and started crying...why...well, because, of course, she was terrified that she would "hurt the baby" when she bonked my nose! crazy girl!
