Most awkward convo with my 7 yr old....OMG

Posted by   + Show Post

I was watching that show "Bringing home baby" and there was a women on the tv giving birth. Well I was up cleaning so I didnt realize at the moment what was on the screen. Well my 7 yr old DD ask me " Mommy is the baby coming out of her butt"!! If you think thats bad wait till you hear what I said......"NO, babies come out of a women's WHO WHO", OMG I couldnt believe what I said.  My 2 daughters call their girl parts a WHO WHO. I dont know where they got it from, but thats what they call it. Now mind you this is a convo that I needed time to prepare for. I had no time to think about what to say. She just layed that question on me so fast. She turned back to the tv as I turned the channel and hasnt said anything about it to me.. P.S. she sat there for like 5 minutes and looked like she was thinking really hard???? So how bad is what I said???? I feel horrid!!!! And should I say anything else to her about it or just let it go????

My DD had known babies come out of privates since she was 2... I almost let her be in the room when DS was born. She is 5 now and knows all about birth...
Its life... she is very mature about it. I think it could be more traumatizing for a young girl to find out that info at an older age as opposed to a younger age... my daughter thinks its normal...and it is..

My ds and I talked about how babies come out of a mommys tummy when he was 3. He knows they come out of a women vagina. Not a big deal in our family. Its natural.

My son has always known babies are born via vaginae. I don't know from what age because I am a doula so he has always been around it.

I guess I just wanted it to be a planned talk. I want to be ready for it and plan out answers for possible questions. And I feel like I should have said something besides WHO WHO. She does already know about periods. She ask me last yr what my tampons and pantie liners where. So I guess it was about time to talk to her about it. Like I said all 3 were born via c section so thats all we ever really talked about was them cutting mommys belly and taking them out.

Um my 8yo and 7yo DD have been knowing for many years and my 5yo DS has known since I was pregnant with Jacob. My girls know about csections too. My oldest has an idea about how the baby got in mommy's tummy too.

Well you will never know what will be asked. Just be truthful and age appropriate.
