Say what?!

As I was putting Jack down for his nap today we started talking about how great God is. We talked about all the things He has given us and made for us; and included in the conversation was the fact that He made Jack too. Jack questioned, "How did He build me?" To which I replied, "He made you in my tummy."

"You're right, mama," Jack said. "When I was little-teeny-tiny, He put me in your mouth and then I went down into your tummy where I grew bigger; and then I came back out of your mouth."

Ummmm...okay, so I really did not want to go into the birds-and-the-bees discussion with my 3 year old nor did I want to go into the details of child-birth. So, I smiled and said goodnight. What else was I supposed to do?

That's so cute! I've also tried to avoid this topic many times with the girls. I'm definitely not ready to tell them the truth.

I'm with you...I'm soooo not looking forward to those discussions. :) Do they HAVE to be this smart this young??!!
