On the way to playgroup the other day, this was the conversation that ensued:
Alex: Mom, I know babies come out of their mom’s tummies, but how do they get out?
Me: (*Thinking* Oh geez. Why is he asking me this?!) Mommies have to push them out really hard.
Me: With lots of determination and they have to be strong.
Alex: But how do they come out?
Me: (*Thinking* uhhh, how can I get around not saying where babies come out? Just not wanting to get into all that while driving down the road.) Mommies just have to push like they’re trying to poop and it hurts real bad.
Alex: Good thing we’re not having any more babies, huh?
