I knew that inevitably I would be asked this question at some point, but I hadn’t expected it quite so soon!
Max is extremely inquisitive and is always asking questions, I don’t know if this is down to him being an average five year old or because of his autism, but either way he asks an awful lot of questions.
He’s noticed my c section scar before and asked questions about that, which is fine and I just explained to him that sometimes that’s how babies have to come out of their mummy’s tummy. But a few days ago he was pushing for more and more detail…
“Mummy, where do babies come from?”
“From their mummy’s tummy”
“But how do they get in there?”
“They just do…”
Clearly my answers weren’t good enough and he was going to keep asking until he understood. So I decided to go with this…
“Well when a mummy and daddy love each other, they have a special cuddle and that makes a baby”
Thank goodness, this seemed to be enough for him because I really didn’t want to have to go into more detail that that!
But then came his next question…
“Daddy, can we have a special cuddle and make a baby?”
At this point we quickly changed the subject. Five year olds, ey?
Have you been asked this questions yet? How did you or how will you answer it?
Thanks for reading.
