Here's a good one. My 7 yo was at the birth of her baby brother 2 weeks ago and saw me getting stitched up from a vaginal tear. At least she was there - I don't know if she watched. Well now she wants to see the stitches. What was Ok in the hospital moments after birth is not OK with me now. i just said it was private.
I would have to agree with you there... I would NOT be comfortable showing va jay jay stitches to my dd.. She did see my c/section staples in the hospital the last time and cried and hugged me. It was very sweet. She asked to see where the baby came out. I did teach her that babies come out better when they come out the "right" way, but she understood the doctors had to take them out of my tummy. I was worried at first that she would think all babies come out of tummies like that, but she got it.
lol she told grandma that "When I have a baby, its gonna come out of my China, not my tummy". lol she can't say it the right way, but I thought it was cute.
