Where Babies Grow

While I was pregnant with Son #2, Son #1 was fascinated with my growing belly.  He would pat my stomach and ask me all kinds of questions about the baby.  One day, he announced.  "I know how babies get into mamas' stomachs."

My husband and I exchanged terrified glances but replied calmly.  "Go on."

Son #1 began.  "First, you swallow the baby."

We smirked but nodded for him to continue.

"Then, the baby goes down your esophagus to your stomach."  He said knowingly.  "Then the baby grows and grows."

"How does the baby get out?"  We asked hesitantly.

"You POOP it out your butt."  Son #1 said as he pointed to his little rear.

I think we'll let him continue to think that for a while longer.
