Nope, I’m not pregnant, but I just had the most hilarious conversation with Clara ever and I had to document it. Since we just returned from visiting Katie (who does have a baby in her belly) Clara has been really into the whole prego/baby thing. So as I was carrying her to bed last night it was no surprise when she said “there’s a baby in your belly” to me since we talked about Katie’s belly the last few days. Here’s how it went down:
Clara (with one hand casually placed on my boob): There’s a baby in your belly.
Mommy: There’s a baby in Miss Katie’s belly, but there’s no baby in mommy’s belly.
Clara (casually puts other hand on my other boob): There’s two babies in your belly!
Mommy: (unintelligible laughter)
Clara: Yay! Two babies!
Mommy: Those aren’t babies, those are boobies! (Ever since Clara breastfed I called them that- don’t ask me why)
Clara: Oh! Those ARE boobies! Yay, two boobies!
Thankfully she was happy as a clam about the babies-to-boobies conversion. John and I aren’t quite ready to start trying yet (more on part of that reason here), so it was sweet to know that as long as I have two boobies, Clara’s ecstatic. Anyone else have a kids-say-the-darndest-things story to tell? Or are you still laughing about the babies in my boobies?
