The other day Pete and I ran into the grocery to pick up a couple of things he needed for school. As we were going into the store an older man with a rather large belly was coming out. My son looked at the man, looked at me and then said in a loud voice as he pointed at the man with the large belly, "Mommy, does that man have a baby in his belly? Can boys have babies?"
I said a quick prayer for the ground to swallow me whole and when that didn't happen I pushed Pete in the shopping cart away from the big bellied man as fast as possible. I told Pete that "No, he doesn't have a baby in his belly. Boys don't have babies, just girls. That's how God made it. " Then I thought of the story of the girl who had a change to become a boy but kept her girl parts and just had a baby. (Do you all know the story I'm talking about?) But that's another conversation entirely. One that I don't plan on having for a very long time.
PS Today marks my 100th post! Wow! Can you believe it? I didn't realize it until now. Sorry I don't have anything special planned or a give away! You're just stuck with me and my writing! :)
