Yesterday, Leah (remember she’s 5) asked the infamous question… “How do babies get in Mommy’s bellies?”. I have no idea where this question came from but I failed her miserably. I didn’t have any idea what to tell her. I seriously thought to myself…”is now the best time to start the talk? Should I lie? What should I tell her?” Sooooo, I said “That’s a good question for Dad”. I know that was not the best thing to do. I just don’t have any idea when to start talking about this kind of stuff and I certainly was not ready for it yesterday! Then, when she asked Dad, his response was “God puts them there”. OK, so that wasn’t the best answer either. Fortunately, she accepted this and went back to playing.
Anyone else deal with this yet? How old were your kids when they started asking? I know there are some good books out there for this kind of thing as well – any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
