Baby recipe
February 22, 2013

babyrecipeD: Are you going to have another baby?

Me: Not at the moment.

D: Why? I really want a brother or a sister – please!

Me: It takes some special ingredients to make a baby.

D: Oh yes – I remember! If you really want a baby you have to write a list to Santa, and if you REALLY want one then he gives one to you. There’s two presents that go through the keyhole. One’s a nut and one’s an egg. You eat the egg and the nut – no it’s a seed – and they mix together and grow and that’s how you get kids and childs and babies. So can you write to Santa?

Me: Hmmmm.

Bottle Feeding Baby – Nov 2012

D: It’s a baby cat holding its bottle.
Me: Why have you written “woof”?
D: Oh. I got something wrong – the pointy up ears, four legs and no arms. I meant to draw a baby human…

Four animals – Sept 2012

D: We had to draw four animals at school and I chose to do turtles. That’s a baby turtle being born from an egg [top left], they’re three children turtles [left], and I didn’t get time to do four grown up turtles – I only did two [right].

The bones of it

D: Why isn’t Aidan coming to play at Daniel’s house?

Me: Because Aidan and his mum and dad get tired and go to bed very early at the moment.

D: Why do they get tired?

Me: Because Aidan’s new little sister isn’t sleeping very well at night.

D: Why isn’t she sleeping very well?

Me: I don’t know – it might be something to do with her coming out of her mummy’s tummy too early. Maybe her body wasn’t quite ready to come out and is trying to get used to being outside of her mummy’s tummy. She might be doing a lot of growing at the moment.

D: Has she got a skeleton?

Me: Yes.

D: Do you know – dogs have skeletons too… but they’re DOG shaped?!

Where am I?
August 26, 2012

D: You know in this picture, where Auntie Vicky and Uncle Ian fell in love and got married?
Me: Well they fell in love before and that picture was taken when they got married afterwards – but yes?
D: Where was I?
Me: You weren’t here yet.
D: Did the boy and the girl still have to make the present?
Me: Yes.
D: When the baby gets in, does it go “Huh? Where am I? Huh? I might be in a lost cave.” Because your belly’s like a cave?
Me: Probably.
D: Do boys get babies?
Me: No.
D: Why?
Me: Because boys don’t have a space in their bodies for a baby to grow.
D: Not even their brain?
Me: No.
D: Not even their creepy skeleton?
Me: No.
D: Not even their muscles?
Me: No.
D: Not even their teeth?
Me: No.

Mind the memory gap!

D: If your parents call you your name when you’re a baby, how do you know your name when you’re five?
Me: What do you mean? It would be the same name you were given when you were a baby.
D: But how would you remember it? – I’m a bit forgetful.
Me: People would remind you because they would call you it all the time.
D: Oh yes, I see…
