Can’t eat during pregnancy

Ethan asked us once where babies come from. We asked him where he thinks babies come from and he answered, “The hospital”. Darling then explained to him that the Mommy has to get pregnant first, then the baby will grow in the tummy and once the baby is big enough, the baby will be born in the hospital. That is when we bring the baby home from the hospital.

After a short pause, he asked his father, “How Mommy get pregnant?” Darling then casually answered him, “Daddy will make Mommy pregnant”. We waited for several seconds, unable to breathe fearing for the next question to come but thank goodness Ethan did not question us further!!

These days, Ethan is always telling the father, “Daddy faster make Mommy pregnant” And the Daddy will always answer him, “Wait until you grow bigger first okay?” *and that got Ethan eating a lot as he strives to grow bigger ASAP! (=_=)*

And then I don’t know where this came from but this morning when he woke up from sleep, the first thing he said to me was, “Mummy, when you have baby in your stomach you cannot eat okay?”

I was stunned and asked him why to which he replied, “Wait the food go in the stomach kena baby head how? So you kenot eat until the baby comes out okay?”

The Daddy kept on trying to explain to him that eating during pregnancy is OKAY but Ethan insists that it is NOT! In a firm voice he repeated, “Mommy, you kenot eat when baby is IN your tummy, O-KAY?”

Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooookay! @_@
