Re: "but HOW did daddy put the baby in your tummy?"
I never told The Kid that people need to be married to make a baby but he believes it. I was watching bridezillas (or some other such bride show) and he said she's getting married because she wants a baby. Is all that food because her baby in her uterus is hungry and she needs to feed the baby? Is her baby going to eat all that food?

Very cute, but very innocent.
Then he learned about chicken eggs & biology in 3rd grade. So I then explained it in egg & fertilized terms. Does he know EXACTLY how one gets to the other? No. His daddy can handle that one in their sex talk in a few years.
Oh, and just personal pref, but I leave marriage out of making babies talk. You don't NEED to get married to make a baby and I'd hate for a kid to get the impression that sex before marriage CANNOT produce a baby. Marriage is nice, but that's a social status, not a biological status.
Dear Baby in my Belly, Please come out. Seriously. It's like a 100 degrees here, IN CANADA. Your dad has taken to calling me puffy. I get that you're a dude and the last thing you want to do is leave a place you're going to spend the rest of your life trying to get back into, but enough. Your room is really cool, come out and see it. Sincerely, Love Mummy
