When I first told my son there was a "baby in my belly" he was quite upset by the idea and said: "Noooo!" and "all done!". Now that I have done a little more explaining, and now that a friend of mine's belly baby is "out", he seems quite pleased with the idea. He now kisses my belly and seems happy when I tell him about the baby in there.
This makes me wonder: at first was he misunderstanding me? Did he perhaps think I was going to eat him? Because that would be definitely something to object to. I wonder. Or maybe he thought I was going to put HIM in my belly and he figured, "Nooo! It would be TOO squishy in there!". I can't be certain. Sadly, I will never know. By the time he is old enough to question on the matter he will probably have forgotten his initial misgivings. Either way, just to be clear here, I never intended on eating him. Anyway, he tastes like yuck.*

*when I pretend to eat my son's feet or what have you, this is what I tell him: "Yuck. You taste like baby. I don't want to eat that Tastes like yuck." He thinks this is HILARIOUS.
