.... say the darnedest things!
And when you add a birth junkie for a mother into the picture, they really really really say the darnedest things!
The following conversation occurred spontaneously last week, just after I had served our son (4yo) his cereal.
Son: I wish I had a uterus.
Me: (after shocked silence) Why's that?
Son: Because I want to have a baby.
Me: (another pause) Well, when you get married, your wife will have a baby for you.
Son: (grudgingly, after pondering for a moment) Well..... okay.
Over the past six months he's been insisting that our midwife should come over so that he could have a baby, so I guess he must finally be accepting biological inevitability.
You never know quite what they're going to say!
