When I was prego with Dozer, Dash and Tank were quite fascinated with my expanding belly. They were very excited about their baby brother's impending arrival and loved to feel his strong kicks and watching mommy's belly bounce and jiggle. One of their favorite things to do was to try to look in my belly button and try to see the baby!
On Dozer's birthday, they were not too surprised to visit me in the hospital and hold their new little brother for the first time. This, of course, comes to the question of How does it get out, mommy? Fortunately, I didn't really have to answer this question. They had always assumed that baby would come out of my belly button!
This was told to me yesterday by Tank, who is my very sweet almost 5 year old.
Tank: Heheheheheheeee.... (running like a spaz around the room with his shirt pulled up)
Me: I see your belly button! It kinda sticks out doesn't it? (he's got a little bit of an outie)
Tank: Whoa! It looks like I'm going to have a baby!!! heheheheeee.... (continues to run around the room like a spaz)
Tank: Noooo... I know... only girls can have babies! Hey Dash, it looks like I'm going to have a baby! heheheheee (giggles again and runs around the room like a spaz)
I just love my little spaz!!! He always cracks me up.
