Ah, the tales parents tell children to avoid uncomfortable conversation… seekingpastor says: Creepy. MrsMK says: That’s what it feels like, too! Leslie says: My daughter asked if my belly button was the baby’s nose. LOL. Bethany says: So THAT’S what my three-year-old is thinking when she says she has a baby in her belly too. :) Josh says: Confirmed. I just asked my 4 year old if this is what she pictures with my pregnant wife. Claire Koenig says: I heard a child once ask what it was wearing …Kids do have a hard time picturing things. We once talked about somebody getting fired, and my child was quite frightened that this person had been burned with fire, as opposed to losing their job! Frank says: This puts a different twist on the term, “lost in translation.” Matt Taylor says: My wife just told me that one of my girls asked, “Does the baby have a crib in your tummy?” Kathleen Keene says: What’s with the meat hanging??! Brooke says: Placenta?? Richie says: If that’s the way it really is I never would’ve come out! lol tschiwi says: funny story: when my 3 year old daughter saw a pregnant wife on tv, talking bout her baby, (but she didn’t see the baby) it came to the following conversation:Sina:”dad, where is the baby?” Me: “it’s in the womans tummy” after a short while of hard thinking … Sina: “so, why did she swallow it?” Ribva says: Apparently when my parents had mentioned that I used to be in my mother’s tummy, I got rather angry and demanded to know why I had been swallowed! Hilarious and awkward in equal measure, I’m sure!
