  • Ask her what she thought was going on. Then go from there.

    She may have thought you and daddy were wrestling, or maybe she wonders if daddy was hurting you, any number of things.

    The key here is to give her limited information. Reassure her that it's a "special" thing mommy's and daddy's do and it's a good thing.

  • I told my daughter that it was something special that mommy and daddy did because we love each other. At the time we were trying for a baby and so I informed her that if we were lucky we'd "plant" a baby in the process. LOL

  • I would be honest with her, but age appropriate honesty, of course. I agree with first poster--ask her what she thinks was happening, and go from there.

  • My son did that. We told him it was special Mom and Dad hugging. He was fine with it, didn't even ask a follow up question! (We are getting some LOCKS for our room though! Yeeesh!)
