Being a parent is sometimes....interesting. You always want what's best for your kids. You want to help them physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I never know if the things I say are ever going to back fire. Are they going to be for the good or for the bad. OK you all know what I'm talking about. So, Reagan is a total girly, girl. Every thing she does or says is ALL girl. She has been talking for awhile now (I guess since I was pregnant with Reese) about being a mom and having babies. She will always say "I have a baby in my tummy," and "when I'm a mom." This has never really bothered me because I was the same way when I was young--just wanted to be a mom. We just tell her only after your married in the temple you can have babies. Riley has been curious a few times (especially when I was pregnant) about how the baby comes out. Raegan picked up on this curiosity very quickly--knowing her future how could you blame her??? I have to have c-sections with my babies, so I told the kids the truth, "The doctor cuts my belly and pulls the baby out." They were a little freaked out but it passed quickly. The other day Reagan asked "how do babies come out of my belly." I hope she doesn't have to have c-sections like me. I wanted to be honest with her so I told her they come out our bums. She was fine with that. The reason I am posting is because we were watching Baby Mama the other day (which by the way is Raegan's new favorite movie, are you surprised??) and out of the blue Raegan asks "how do babies get inside of my tummy?" HOLY COW!! I can handle all of the other stuff. Telling her that babies come out of our bums was a HUGE leap for me. What am I going to say?!?! So I told her the truth..... "it's magic." That's really not a lie:) LOL. I worry about what the future holds for this very mature 3 year old. Heaven help us:)
