where do babies come from?

4-year-old boy:
How do the babies get in your tummy?
Mom: They grow in my tummy
4-year-old boy: No, but how do they get in there?
Mom: After a mommy and a daddy get married in the temple they decide to have babies come to their family.
4-year-old boy: No, how does the baby get in?
Mom: The daddy helps the mommy get the baby in her tummy then the baby grows bigger and bigger until mommy goes to the hospital and the doctor helps the baby come out.
4-year-old boy: How does the baby come out?
Mom: The doctor helps it come out.
4-year-old boy: But, where does it come out?
Mom: From my tummy.
4-year-old boy: But your tummy doesn’t have any cracks in it… where does it come out?
Mom: Mommy’s have a special place where babies come out.
4-year-old boy: Only mommy’s have it?
Mom: Yes.
4-year-old boy: I want to see it.
Mom: Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
4-year-old boy: Next time you are in the hospital I want to come and see where the baby comes out.
Mom: Hmm. That might be interesting… actually when your wife is going to have a baby and you are big like Daddy, then you can go to the hospital and see where the baby comes out.


  1. I thought the ward referred to "The Ward" in our hometown. I thought it was odd that there was a whole website devoted to that.

    Also, I think all kids who force this sort of conversation are manipulative liars. They know how everything works. They just want to make their elders uncomfortable. I'M ON TO YOU, CHILDREN.
