Thankfully, this is the first question kids usually ask which is much easier to answer than how the baby gets in! Keep it short and simple. Here is what I say…By God’s design (so unless you are an atheist, this works for everyone), Moms have a special hole between their legs called a vagina. When the baby is ready, the baby comes out that hole. While the baby is inside the mom, it lives in a special home called the uterus or womb. Those are your words. Whah La! I preface almost everything with “By God’s Design”. This is important for future conversations such as “How does that baby get in”? I wish I could say that those “by design” words are mine but they aren’t. I stole them from a Mary Flo Ridley presentation (www.MaryFlo.org). You can steal them too! She won’t mind. I promise. Next blog post: Where do babies come from…and it ain’t the stork!
TIP— “By God’s Design”….start your answers with these words.
