When’s Our Baby Coming?



“Mama, when is our baby coming?”

“Not for a while Cooper, not until Daddy’s birthday.”

“Will the baby crawl or walk out of your belly?”

“Neither, babies are small and need to be held.  My body will push the baby out.”

“Babies come out of vaginas.  Vaginas are amazing!”

“I agree!”

“Can we eat cake when the baby is born?”

“Sure!  Hannah and I want to bake a cake for the baby.  You can have some!”

“Can the baby have cake too?”

“No babies just drink mama’s milk.”

“Oh.  That’s nice too. Your boobs make milk and that is nice.”

“I think so too.”

“I love our baby.  I won’t hit it with my sword.”

“Oh good.  I’m glad you will be gentle.”

“I love you mama.”

“I love you too.”

  1. He is one awesome person!! I love “vaginas are amazing” and “I won’t hit it with my sword”.

    My oldest, who was present for my youngest’s home birth, and who played “birth” for months afterward (crawling out of a blanket to be a baby coming out of the vagina), now is horrified that that is where she came from. She won’t say the word vagina and covers her head when I talk about birth. I hope it’s just a phase.

  2. I LOVE the conversations you have with Cooper. His brain just amazes me with its seemingly random thought patterns, which are NOT random at all. That boy is going to be a force to be reckoned with one day. I say it again…..You are such a great Mama. <3

  3. It’s so true – you are a GREAT mother. As much as you feel privileged to be their mom, those people are lucky to be your offspring!
