Where do babies come from?

sleeping-baby-100189137My niece Sophie had delivered a baby and I went to visit them. When I was there, a cousin of mine also came to see the new mother and child.

My cousin had brought her 2-year-old daughter along with her.

The toddler was excited to see the baby in the cradle and watched fascinated as the new born slept peacefully.

“Where did this baby come from?” I asked, disturbing her reverence.

“From Sophie aunt’s tummy.”  Replied the moppet smartly.

“And where did YOU come from?” I pestered her again.

The child thought for a moment. While I was waiting for a profound reply, she looked at me shyly and asked:

“From Hamleys Toy Shop?”

PS : That is a lot better than saying , a stork brought her, right?

    Lovely! I always remember, as a small kid, saying “Mum! Mum! Mum! You should see Mrs Robottom. She’s fat! fat! fat!” I still remember Mum sitting me on her knee and explaining that “Mrs Robottom is going to have a baby.” It was magic then. It still is now!

    Oh how cute! I have just had a little girl myself and look forward to some of my own little one’s gems which I will be very happy to share with you!

    Haha, I do think it would be more fun to come from a toy store than the stork! I remember how my older son adored his little brother when he was first born. The look of wonder was so sweet.
