This year many of our friends were pregnant, including Miss Red’s former daycare provider, so talking about babies was an all-the-time occurrence. She’d ask if babies were in everyone’s tummy and share information about if they were a boy or girl.
We started talking about when she was in my body, and out of nowhere she said, “and then I jumped!” Which is quite funny, since she wasn’t much of a jumper, more like a slow-moving deep sea creature.
Even now, at dinner, she’ll talk about how she was in my body and that I worked hard to get her out. During a car ride Ray LaMontagne came on the radio, and I told her that we played his music while in labor. “And then I jumped!”
How do you share your pregnancy stories with your kids? Do they share an interest in them?
