My 3-year-old asked today, “How do people make people?”
I’m all about being open and honest, but only in ways that can be understood or appreciated given the age of the person asking questions. My response was, “Well, mommies have stuff inside their bodies, and daddies have stuff inside their bodies, and it’s all super, super tiny, and when it’s inside a mommy’s body, it can start to grow and turn into a baby!”
How’d I do? For what it’s worth, he just kind of laughed at everything I said like it was all silly.
