A Most Peculiar Window

I have some pretty strange conversations with my kids.  Here's one I had yesterday with my eight-year-old son:

"Mama, could I see anything when I was in your stomach?"

"Well Bubba, first of all, you weren't in my stomach, because if you were, the acid in my stomach would have destroyed you."

Bubba nodded.  "And then I would've come out as poop."

"Um, yeah.  Something like that."

I continued.  "You were in my uterus, and I really don't know if you could see anything."

"But what about the belly button?"

I looked at my kid funny.  "What about it?"

"Isn't that like a little window?  Couldn't I see out the belly button?"  

"Bubba, seriously?  Have you looked at your belly button lately?  There's no possible way you can see in or out of your body through your belly button!"

He grinned.  "But your belly button is special.  It's a Mama belly button!"

  3. *LOL* That's so cute. When I was pregnant, my son use to kick at the belly button all the time. I thought he could really tell something was there!

  7. Haha...your son sounds so adorable. :) That would be a little freaky though, if it was real. Think about it--a tiny fetus peering out of your bellybutton. You'd have to wear half shirts all the time so they'd have a view of everything--consult them about what shows they wanted to watch. Are there speakers installed in the belly-button as well? haha...Okay, I'll stop now...

    1. Speakers in the belly button? Hmmm. I'm not sure. I thought the belly button was just a button to press to listen to music. :)
