Donald’s harsh postpartum reality.
February 06, 2013

Earlier tonight when we were sitting around the dinner table, Charlotte asked us to tell her the story of her birth.

“Well,” said Donald.  “Momma and I were lonely so we went to a baby store and looked at all the babies and picked you out and took you home.”

She looked puzzled for a moment before responding.  “WHAT?!  NO DADDY!  THAT’S SILLY!  I GREW INSIDE MOMMA!”

So together we wove the story of how Charlotte was born.  When we were finished, she asked for us to tell the story again.  And again.  And again.  Until finally I decided that now was as good a time as any to move into the biology of it for her.

“Charlotte, do you remember HOW babies are made before they start growing in mommas’ bellies?” I asked.

My husband looked at me and looked at Charlotte.  “Oh,” he said.  “This should be good, Charlotte.  Lately even Daddy has trouble remembering what happens to make a baby.”

** Charlotte is three years and six months old.  Evie is (almost) three months old.

    Bahahahahaha! Your husband is awesome.

    But seriously woman, get naked already. Sex after two babies is way more creative. And fun.

    Maybe I’m only speaking for our horny selves though. :D
