My 6 year old daughter asked me this morning how babies (specifically her when she was a baby) get inside their mommy's tummies.
I told her it was a bit hard to explain so while she was at school today I was going to think about it and come up with an easy way to explain it to her and I promised I would answer her after school. She was satisfied with that response, but I KNOW she's going to come back and ask me after school.
How have other people approached this commonly asked children's question? How appropriate or inappropriate is it to mention sex, etc.? I'm sure she just wants a 1 or 2 sentence explanation and if I can figure out how to put it into a short and sweet, yet TRUTHFUL way, I want to give her what she wants.
Please help. Thanks in advance!
