Cat Got My Tongue

So it was a typical naptime here a bit ago. Told Bryce while he was snuggled up under the sheet and blankie of his toddler bed that we only have a couple more days and the new carpet would be installed and he'd get to sleep in his new bed. He answered, "And Ethan gets to sleep in here." I said, "Right," and that the baby will get the nursery.

"How does the baby get out of your tummy," inquired Bryce.
"The baby just comes out," I answered, hoping that was that. Oh no.... Bryce has to be among the most curious 3-year-olds out there.
"But HOW does the baby get out?"

He has asked before and I couldn't think for the life of me in this moment how I answered then. I was just so thrown off by this and couldn't come up with a good response.

So I told him to ask Daddy when he gets home. Not the best response, I know. Suppose I should warn Tim.....


  1. Sophie did this exact thing to me. She kept pushing through... and said, "No, HOW does it come out." So, I just told her. I'll email you. :)

  2. The girls have both asked, and I know it's a touchy subject for most, but I was honest. They haven't asked about how a baby is made yet, but I'm sure that will be soon! ;)

  3. Aww, hehe. I'm all for cautious, simple honesty. I just couldn't think quite how to word it. LOL. So need to think about this since he seems to want to know.
