More questions and concerns from our 3-year old son

Lately, when Mommy gets stuck on an answer to one of his 457 questions of the day, I turn to God. "God made it that way" works A LOT. However, this has led to prodding on WHY God made certain things they way they are:

"Why did God give us two arms?"

"Why is the song The 12 Days of Christmas backwards? Did God make it that way?"

"Why did God put this wrinkly stuff under my penis?"


And a couple other gems:

"When I learn to drive, will you put my car seat in the front seat where the steering wheel is?"

Upon learning that he will lose his baby teeth in a few years, "So when I turn 6 and I open my mouth all of my teeth will fall out of my head?!" (Eyes welling with tears)

The baby in Mommy's tummy

There is a new baby in Mommy's tummy. This has led to some inquisitive comments from our 3-year old son.

"How did the baby get in your tummy?"

Daddy was ready for this one: "God decided we should have another baby, so he put the baby in Mommy's tummy."

Our son was not quite satisfied. "But HOW did God put the baby in there?"


"Did he push it in through that tunnel?" (pointing to my belly button)


At 15 weeks pregnant, I was holding my 6 month old niece:

"Mommy, is that the baby that was in your tummy? Did it come out?"


"Mommy, when the baby comes out of your tummy, will I be a daddy?"
