So, today we were doing some grocery shopping, and my daughter who is 5, had some very interesting questions for me. I was not really prepared for these since when I was pregnant with her, my son was only 2 1/2 - 3 years old. His questions were way different.
Nevaeh starts out:
Q: Does my baby brother have eyes and ears?
Immediately sticks her face onto my belly and yells at him...Can you see me?? Can you hear me??
Q: Mom, why he not answer me, doesn't he have a mouth?
A: Yes, he has a mouth, but can't answer you from my belly.
Q: Can we give him your phone to call us?
A: No, sorry, there is no way to give the phone to him. You'll see him very soon. He won't be able to talk at first, he will cry and laugh though.
Q: How does he get a bath in there? How do you change his diaper and his clothes without us seeing?
A: Well, he gets a bath when mommy does, and he doesn't have diapers or clothes right now.
Q: Ewe so he is naked???? All the time, in your belly?????? (Very inquisitive facial expression)
A: Yes honey, he has no clothes or anything in there. We will give him all the things we bought for him when he is born.
Q: Oh geez, is he ever gonna come out and meet me and Zach (the older brother he is 8 now)??
A: Yes, he is coming around Valentine's Day. He will be so excited to meet his big brother and big sister!
Q: Does he ask you about me?
A: Baby girl...he can't talk right now. He has to learn to talk after he is born.
Q: So, he's not going to play with me when he gets here?
A: I am sure he will...he just has to grow a while before he can play.
This was a fun conversation while in Wal-Mart...
