An exchange between me and Eli last night…
Eli: Where did you get me?
Mom: What do you mean?
Eli: Where did I come from?
Mom: Wal Mart
Eli: You got me at Wal Mart?
Mom: Yep, on sale even. We were very excited!
Eli: …..

You know, I thought I had more time before I was going to get this question. I figured for sure Eli would be eight or nine years old. OH well. I think it’s reason number 689 that I should not have been a parent.

    you are a great parent. 🙂 don’t discount yourself. Eli will have a great sense of humor, just like you, because of these exchanges. 🙂 Go Momma Kay!

    They become insightful so quickly. Eli has officially become aware of his own consciousness!

    If mine have asked this question, they have not asked me! 🙂 and if they asked Travis I can guarantee they got an answer almost identical to the on Eli got from you.

    I think you’re right, package Eli and his stuff up and send him to Richmond.

    We had to deal with that question from Suse when I was pregnant with Fred. I went for the abbreviated not-quite-clinically-correct version. Susana believes that I grew her brother in my “tummy” and before that she grew in my tummy until it was time for us to go to the hospital so she could be born.

    She hasn’t asked for more details beyond that. Not even how or why a baby would be in one’s “tummy.” I guess it goes without saying that I am not of the “teach your child the anatomically correct term for things from the outset.” Your opinion may vary.

    I’m hoping to avoid the more detailed explanation for a few years or more, but I think it’s natural. A friend of mine employs the term “special hugging” for the question about h ow the baby gets in the womb.

    Good luck if this comes up again.
