I got home late last night and Will and Sean were already in bed. Will had just gone down, so I went in to kiss him good night. We had quite the interesting conversation:
Will: "Mommy, remember when Baby Sean was in your belly?"
Me: "Yes Honey, I do." (cause who could forget THAT, especially so quickly?) "Did you know that you were once in my belly too?"
Will: "I was??? At the same time as Baby Sean?"
Me: "no, not quite. You're the big brother, so you were there before Baby Sean."
Will: "Mommy? When will I get to have a baby in MY belly?"
Me: "Well....you see Will, you probably won't ever have a baby in your belly. Because you are a boy. Girls are the ones that usually have a baby in their belly."
Will:''Well, Mommy.....I'm going to turn you into a boy. And I'm going to turn me into a girl!" "Waves his "magic wand" "Bzzzt. Now you're a boy, and I'm a girl! And I have a baby in my belly!"
Remind me to try this conversation again sometime. Like in a few years.
