So DD has figured out that she's going to be a big sister. Don't ask me how, we still haven't figured it out. Anyway, she seems to understand that daddy and mommy did something to get a baby in there, but wants to know how the baby gets out. To understand her best, just look at her favorite tv shows: The Magic Schoolbus, The Mysteries of Alfred the Hedgehog, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That, Dinasaur Train, Sid the Science Kid,Zula Patrol. Anyone see a trend here?:) She got all upset with me the other night because I couldn't adequately explain where wind came from.:eek:
So does anyone have an idea how to explain childbirth to a young child? Keeping in mind we're planning a c-section? I looked at the library but they were either too young for her questioning mind or way over her head. I'm hoping to explain it at a 5 year old's level since that seems to be where she's at for sciency stuff.
The only thing I'm thankful for in this case is that in all other things she is normal. Dolls, Thomas the Tank, Hello Kitty, etc.
