Where do babies come from?

Tjoeks is now 6yrs old. She is very outspoken and a curious child. She loves to ask me those difficult questions…

I believe we can answer any difficult questions that children may ask according to their age. We as the adults just need to be creative.

So today I got the question again: “Mom, how do babies get in the mom’s belly?”

Usually I would tell her that the daddy gives the mommy a seed and then the baby grows in her belly… Today she wasn’t satisfied with that answer and asked:

“Where does the daddy get the seed?”

Me: “God gives the daddy the seed. He gives it to the mommy and then the baby grows in her belly.”

Tjoeks: “But how does the seed get into the mommy’s belly?”

At this point I just thought: Lord, help me with this one, because neither her or I am ready for this answer…

Me: “The daddy puts the seed in the mommy’s belly through her bellybutton and then Jesus lets the baby grow…” 🙄 Sorry I lied halfway Lord, but I’m gonna need more time on this topic.

At last she was happy with the answer and I was left in peace again.

Honestly, these kids of ours keep testing me every day. Lol!
