Livia asked me for the 3rd time since this pregnancy began, "How does the baby come out of your belly?"
I smoothly answer for the 3rd time, "We will learn about that when you are in 4th grade health."
For the 2nd time, she asks, "Why do I have to wait until the 4th grade?"
I again, quickly reply, "Because that is when I learned about babies being born." (I'm sure I had a decent idea before then, we did have a set of encyclopedias that I loved to read! But this was the first year I remember a health class being taught for just girls, if you know what I mean.)
Today she adds on something new. "Why can't I learn about it now?"
This time I stutter a little, trying to make up something that might pacify her. "Well, um......you can't learn everything at once, or what will you learn in the 4th grade?" Oh man, that was lame. So glad it worked for now!
Any better suggestions for next time? You know there will be a next time!
