and there it goes...

the other day while driving in the car after visiting jemma, abby asked daddy, "where do babies come from?" instead of saying the commercialized, "st. vincent's" of course...or better yet, something simple and easy like, "mommy's belly" or "the stork," he tells her the real deal. the REAL DEAL, people!!! i was mortified. i just wasn't prepared for this. totally caught blind-sided. in truth, hearing my 4 year old say, "babies are born from their mommy's coochie" (and why yes, we taught her that name when she was a baby because we thought it was "cutesy" and clearly we were first time parents doing it all wrong. now i'm wishing we just went ahead with the actual term "vagina" like the professionals tell you to do, but again, we didn't know any better...so stop passing judgement on me. at least i'm honest.)

where was i?

oh yeah, so abby tells me this so casually and then giggles. i asked her, "where did you hear that from?" immediately she said daddy. i look at jay beside me in the car, and the man is giggling himself. i said, "really? you really already told her that?" he fesses up.

i don't know, guys. ya'll may think this is no big deal, but again, i just wasn't ready to deal with that honest answer yet. not yet. usually with questions like this, jay immediately tells her, "go ask your mother." why wasn't i notified?

this is grounds for therapy, ya know. there goes another hard-earned dollar in that jar. all i ask for is a room with a view...

Hey we have taught Mason that he has a penis, however he calls it his "pea nuts" LOL and he asked me what those little balls were, and I responded Testicles. End of discussion. Love you girl. I hope Baby Jemma comes home soon. Megan Shedd Quattlebaum

That is hilarious!!!! I have yet had to "really" explain it - bc of my csections I have gotten away with "you were cut out of mommy's belly". ;)
