yarnandchocolate Thank you so much for your kind words of support. Ever since it happened, I have sort of questioned myself IF I did the right thing. But she was content with the answer, and at least that’s something.
A few days ago, while making the girls ready for bed, Leah all of a sudden asked me this question.
She has seen babies being born on TV. So she knew they came from “down bellow”. She continued to ask me if they came out through the hole where her “wee wee” comes from.
Caught me totally by surprise, but I found a mirror and showed her (using her own body as an example”. She had a quick look, got dressed and skipped into bed with a quick remark: “That must hurt. No wonder they scream!”
I am clueless to where she came up with this question, and I have been questioning if I handled the situation correctly. But how could I have answered that question differently?
They look a bit dull, gray base and colorful skulls in the arms. So I might find an appropriate figure to iron on in the morning to make it less plain.
The girls will love it and I bet they would demand to wear it for tomorrow’s play date with Celina (from their old daycare).
I got my paycheck this morning and when I asked the girls this morning if they wanted to do something special, they quickly suggested a trip to IKEA for dinner and some playtime in the playroom. Since IKEA is close to where I buy my fabrics, I couldn’t resist popping in there to have a look. I can tell you that I didn’t come out empty handed, and I spent way more then I had planned.
But I am refusing to think about it or regret anything. At least it will give the girls a top up in their wardrobe (as if it wasn’t already full enough).
