Conversations with Laila

Emma and I spent the weekend at my parents' house just hanging out and enjoying relaxing.  While we were there, my almost 4 year old niece, Laila, came over.  I just love talking to her!  She says the cutest things!  This is Laila and the conversations this weekend went something like this...

(I am in the bathroom changing shirts and Laila walks in.)

Laila:  Aunt Jes, where's your baby?

Me: In my tummy.

Laila:  Where?

Me:  In my tummy.

Laila: How do you get it out?

Me:  I have to go to the hospital and get it out.

Laila:  But how do you get it out?

Me:  The doctor will get the baby out.

Laila:  But, how does the doctor get it out?

Me: Uh... he just does.

Laila:  But how?

Me:  Magic?!?!

What in the world was I supposed to say?  I don't think that I want to be the one explaining it to her!  I'll let her Mama, who is a nurse practitioner, giver her all the details on that!  Sorry, Jenn, I think I opened up a can of worms!

Later, Laila,  Aunt Jee-Jee (Jena), and I were talking....

Jee-Jee:  Man...

Laila:  I'm not a man.  I'm a girl.

Jee-Jee:  Man...

Laila:  I'M NOT A MAN! I'M A GIRL!

Jee-Jee-:  How do you know?

Laila:  Because, I'm a girl.

Jee-Jee:  But how do you know?

Laila:  Because I'm a girl.  Jesus made me that way.

Jee-Jee:  Oh... Good answer!

Laila:  See my ponytail?  (She turns to show Jee-Jee her ponytail and fluffs it.)  I'm a girl!
