Always the helpful one

My son loved dinosaur eggs. He had pictures of them in his room, and knew everything there was to know about them. The only problem was, he thought this information applied to all animals.

He was talking on the phone with my mother-in-law, explaining, matter of factly, “Mom has a big egg in her tummy right now. Dad gave her a seed to fertilize the egg, and next time I’m going to help!”

I could hear my mother-in-law laughing on the phone from several feet away. -Pia, mother of 7

  1. I remember my dad telling me that my mom had a baby in her tummy that was only as big as his finger. I wanted the baby to come right out so we could have a teeny tiny baby.


  2. It always good to see the social responsibility of children in action! we try to make sure our children are helpful and courteous and it looks like they have done a great job in both categories! I am betting though this is one time they might have to tell him that you don;t have to always be so helpful! 🙂



  3. Haha! Oh dear.

    Kids say the funniest things about pregnancy don’t they. I remember reading one somewhere, I think it must have been in in the letters page of a magazine or something. Anyway, a child was asking her mother why she was getting so fat and the mother replied “Well honey, you know that’s because I have a baby growing in my tummy”, and the child replied “Yes I do know that, but what’s growing in your butt?”.


  4. Hilarious. Hubby and I both got a good laugh. 😀 When I was pregnant with our second my daughter came with us for the boy/girl reveal at the 20 wk ultrasound. We had just taken her to the Jonah veggie tales movie. So at the ultrasound she looked from the screen to my belly to the screen … And shouted, “Mom! The baby’s in the belly of the whale!” We could hear people laughing in the hall.
