The Mind of a Three-Year-Old

Beth has had some funny things to say about the baby I thought I would share.

First, the day I went to the doctor I told her that he had told me that there was a baby in my tummy. I showed her the ultrasound picture and explained that that is where the baby will live until its big enough to come out. Beth got a concerned face and said "It looks scary in there mom." I said that it wasn't scary, just dark, and she replied "I'm pretty sure the baby is afraid of the dark mom, you better do something." Sweet kid.

Then, yesterday I was laying on the couch battling a wave of nausea when Beth came over to "take care of me" as she often does. Then she looked at my belly in surprise (it really is growing at an alarming rate already) and said, "Look mom! The baby is all growed up, the doctor can take it out now!" Obviously she does not recall how large my belly will really get...*sigh*
