Magic Man

It was only a matter of time….

Leo: “So you’ve got, like, a real baby in your belly?”

Me: “I do, yes.”

Leo: “How long ’til we meet it?”

Me: “Well, it takes 9 months to grow so you’ve got about 6 more months to wait.”

Leo: “How did you get it in there?”

Me: “Mmmmmmm… oh God. What?”

Leo: “The baby- how’d you, like, get it in there?”

Me: “Uhhhhhh….magic?.”

Leo: “That’s so cool. How did you learn magic?”

Me: “It’s your Dad. He has a magic wand but only his wife can see it.”

Leo: “And you’re his wife?”

Me: “That’s right.”

Leo: “Gotcha.”

You’d think that I’d have a better explanation for a 6-year-old but since they seem not to question magic or ninjas, I went the magic route. He’d never believe that his Dad’s a ninja- ninjas don’t nap.

  3. During my last pregnancy, my 4 year old daughter was persistently curious about how that baby was going to get out of there. I skirted the issue as long as I could and finally said, “Well,he’s going to come out of my vagina.” She paused for a moment and then looked at me and giggled, “Your vagina is too small for a baby to come out of!” I said, “You’re right,” and thought to myself that that was probably the nicest thing anyone had said to me all day. She never brought it up again.

  4. Ha! I thought we were the only one to play the “magic” card! I told my daughter, out of panic, that her Daddy had magic, and that was how the baby was put inside of me.. She accepted it with no problem. I am hoping it tides her over for a while, at least until she’s a preteen..
