"Why is her belly so big?"

As heard in Trader Joe's this afternoon...

3 Year Old Little Girl: "Mommy, why is her belly so big?"

Mommy: "Why do you think? Do you remember before Mommy had Liam... did my belly look like that?"

Me, realizing that the little girl was referring to *my* big belly: "Do you think I have a baby in my belly?"

Little Girl: "Uh hun. My mommy had Liam in her belly and then she had me in her belly."

Mommy: "Sorry about that."

No bother to me... just glad for the mom's sake that she chose an actual pregnant women to direct her question to! ;)

That happened to me too. I was sort of surprised and laughed when it happened. Just remember that will be you explaining something to your child someday. :) Kids have so many questions. Good thing she didn't ask how it got in there. That is always a tad uncomfortable.

Hilarious! My fave part of my job is laughing at what little kids will say. Upon hearing that there was a baby in my belly, a former student of mine asked his dad why I ate a baby. He brings "literal thinker" to a whole new level.

Yeah, I got a few of those too. And Leslie's done that, especially since Alex was born. "Hey, Mom, look! That lady's got a baby just like you got a baby before Alex came out!"

And, yes, it's always nice when the child chooses an actual pregnant woman to point out. ;)
