Dinner Time Conversations

Last night at the dinner table the girls were talking about when they were in my tummy ...
Chatty: "Mom how did we get out of your tummy?"
Me: "The doctor"
Chatty: "No really tell me the truth how did we get out of your tummy?"
Mr. ESPN: "Mommy threw you up!" - Nice one dear!
Chatty: "No way, that's not true, your mouth is too small, how did we get out?"
Me: "Mmmm"
Chatty: "Did the doctor cut us out of your tummy?"
Me: "Yeah that's what he did"
Chatty: "That doesn't sound like fun"
Me: "Are you rethinking you desire to have 11 kids?"

Note - I did NOT have a c-section with either of my kids, but I figured this was an easier explanation than the truth.  They can't handle the truth right now ... especially after saying my mouth was too small!!

I had 3 c-sections and use this reasoning all the time. My kids don't think there is another option!

That is hilarious!

I got flustered just like you when my kids asked me the same thing. no c-sections here but that was the answer I gave. Have a great weekend!

I'm lucky to have had the c-sections so that is my answer. Strangely enough though - Shaun just asked last night how babies are made. Not as easy to answer. hmmmm....It was an interesting and SHORT conversation.

lol! love your conversations!!

i told kate that she was surgically removed. i did have c's, so it's true. i like the 'surgical' part of the explanation. a lot easier to explain!! :)

threw them up... HAA
