we were all walking and Jay (DS1 16) asked if my belly button was attatched to teh baby's umbilical cord/ belly button.. I said no and told him the baby's was att to the cord then the placenta which makes food and gives air to baby etc..
we walk another block or two and Evan (DS2 6) asks.. Mom, what is the baby doing in there with a pinata?? I was not thinking and I was like "whaat" a what in there,, he says "is there like a playground in there with a pinata??" I say "pinata?? he says Yeah.. pinata, plinata .. umm
I go OHHHHHH the PLACENTA.. he says YEAH !! the plinata!
I think he wants to go in ther and hit the plinata!!
That is funny! Sometimes it feels like this baby has a pinata in there!
Ds is too little to really have any idea, but in a HB book we read together there is a picture of the placenta being delivered and inspected by the MW. I told ds we still had his placenta in our freezer and he went around the rest of the day saying "'centa". Don't kids just crack you up?
Lindsey, dd2 (almost 3 yrs) asked me the same question just a few days ago. And of course, she also proceeded to ask me where the baby comes out. I nonchalantly told her that she'll come out my bottom and then quickly changed the subject and distracted her before she could think about it or ask more questions. If it was dd1 (4.5 yrs), I wouldn't have minded explaining a bit more, but dd2 is just too young to understand this conversation at all.
