5yr old asking where babys come from...HELP
my 5yr old SD keeps asking where babys come from. I'm currently 9 months preg, she's felt the baby kick and all that. She's been asking at least a few times a week the whole pregnancy. She'll be 6 in Nov. We have full custody of her and her younger sisters (2yr old from SOs previous marriage, 2 almost 3yr old from my previous marriage).
BM to the SDs lives in another state, and I called just to be nice trying to get her view on how I should explain this to SD5. She first told me to say the story about a stork...that was a fail! Then she told me to tell her that when mommys and daddys want a baby daddy gives mommys belly a specail kiss and then a baby grows. FAIL again. She then said to tell her when mommys and daddys want a baby they pray to god and he puts one in there, and when it's big enough the doctor takes it out. I'm not even going to try that one. 1st we're not religious, 2nd it sounds like complete bull, and 3rd we don't want her to be afraid to pray next to a little boy for fear that he'll be praying she has a baby lol. BM also says to refer to genitals and woo-woos and winky-doos. hell no that sounds stupid. We refer to them as lady parts and boys are different from girls cause they have guy parts. As the kids get older we'll explain the proper terms.
We want to keep it close to the truth if at all possible, but also to where its age appropriate and she can understand, so these freaking questions can stop! None of my friends have had to have this talk or delt with questions about where babys come from yet. BTW telling her we'll explain it when she's older doesn't work, and trying to distract her from the question doesn't work either seeing as she keeps asking a few times a week. So any ideas from anyone would be helpful! PLEASE help me figure out how to explain to a 5 almost 6yr old where babys come from!!!
