How to get a baby brother…


Lately, our 5-year-old has been telling me constantly that she really wishes she could have a baby brother. She has all kinds of logical arguments as to why it would be great.

The other day, while she was practicing her violin, she stopped and asked me again. I told her that just because she wants a baby brother, mom doesn’t just magically have another baby in her tummy.

“I know how to get a baby brother in your tummy,” she said.

“You do?”

“Yes. You put your hands on your back like this (then shows me), and you walk around really funny, then a baby brother comes in your tummy. Then it hurts a lot and he comes out.”

Can you tell someone’s seen a certain movie too many times lately?
