Speaking of Labor Day

Jo: Did it hurt when your babies came out?

Me: [saying] Yes. But it was worth it. [thinking] Please don't make have The Talk right here in the bathroom at day care.

Jo: I'm not going to have any babies when I'm a grown-up. I've been through enough as a kid!

"Well, no. It didn't hurt when they came out. Actually, I was feeling pretty damn fine right then.

Later on, however. That's another story altogether!"

(I agree with Jo - she's been through a lot, especially in the last six weeks!)

I love it when little kids sound as though they've lived a hundred years.

Ha!

I had to have The Talk (sort of) a few weeks back. I explained to my older daughter that she got stuck and had to come out through a cut in my belly. Fine. Good. No problem.

When I told the younger one she came out through my nether regions, her 3-year-old face froze, her eyes grew gigantic and she said in total wonder, "Through there?!?!" pointing at her own crotch. I couldn't help snickering.

Jo is very wise!

My kids love hearing the story of how they were born. After one telling of my daughter-sponsored c-section, my son said "I'm so glad that I'm a boy" and my daughter said, "Yeah, but you could get reincarnated as a girl" and he said," that's true." What the?
