Born and Reborn Again

Wednesday, 15 December 2010

Peach: Do you like my smell?
FrumeSarah: Do I like your what?
Peach: My smell. We all have our own smell. Like we all have our own breath.

Oh. Peach is three.

FrumeSarah: Hey Peach, do you know who put our breath inside of us?
Peach: God. Isn’t that so cool? I told my friends at school today that God put hot breath inside of us.

A moment later…

Peach: I can’t remember the day I was born.
FrumeSarah: That’s OK, Peach. You were pretty little.
Peach: Can you take me there?
FrumeSarah: Where? To the hospital?
Peach: No, the place where I was waiting for you before I was born.

Peach is not alone in his musings about prenatal life. HIs sister had her own take on things.

    So sweet! But I’m dreading the day the question of how/when arises!

      He asked how and I said that God kissed us right before we are born. That’s how the breath gets inside of us.

      Today he wanted to know how the baby gets out. Taking a page from ZaydeGiraffe, I told him that mommies have something called the birth canal and the baby travels down it. He thought that was pretty cool too 😉

    Those discussions are fun.
