 And we all know what would happen to the population if guys could give birth

A certain darling-cute and feisty 4 year old has expressed to me in recent months his desire to have a baby. I have wholeheartedly been encouraging him in this - stressing how wonderful it will be when he is married someday (a LOOONG time from now), for him to be a daddy. -Never imagining that what he meant was that he wanted to give birth to a child... As this little bit of truth began to come out I had to break the news to him. "Sweetie, God designed ladies to have babies, not boys." "WHAT?!" "Yes, you can get married to a wonderful lady someday and she can have a baby that you both will take care of and love!" "WHAT?! You... you mean I can't have a baby in my tummy? ...EVER?!" People, I am not kidding, he got real tears in his eyes... "Sweetie, listen, I don't think you really want to have a baby in your tummy. You will some day get to enjoy having a baby, without going through the hurts of giving birth to the baby. Believe me Jay, it's a sweet deal. God knows what he is doing. Let's not question that bud." *Sigh* "I really wanted to have a baby" *Sniff* *sniff....sniff* He then finds some of my nursing pads, sticks them under his shirt and declares, "I can nurse though!" Wow. Okay. So we go through the explanation again of how cool it is that God made things work the way they do, and then going into a little bit more detail of how they work. He gets this big grin on his face. "I DO nurse. I DO!!" At this point, he obviously gets it, but is enjoying the laughter erupting form his mama, which she can.not.stop. And then he proceeds to nurse his stuffed lambie/blankie. Yep, that's my boy. And some day these pictures will be the best black mail ever. And as a bonus, I leave you with cute chubbiness just out of the bath. Yes, we do give him curly mohawks after we bathe him. Really, how could we not when he has all of that thick dark hair?! It's just a given. Speaking of nursing.... Yeah, he ♥'s it. :)
"I'd smile, but my cheeks are too chubby from all that nursing..."

I LOVED this post! I had the same conversation with my middle child and he cried too when I tried explaining to him that boys can't have babies in their bellies. I don't know if he really got it because he just turned three. He thinks he can nurse too. lol

So, if pets are to maintain a healthy body, they need large quantities of friendly bacteria I become sarcastic and abrupt We are all very busy people, some of us with 9-5 jobs and one hour commutes, and others of us busy making our lives at home work for us, with children at tow and a variety of chores to do as well as errands to run But virtually everyone else -- like the vast majority involving players along with the fans -- would suffer
