So we are waiting at the doctors for R2. She is fine but a check up for her eczema. She comes up to me and asks very seriously,
Mum, do you have to first fight with a man to have a baby in your tummy?
The book I am reading falls from my hand. What? I ask.
R giggles from the other side of the room.
What are you talking about,R2?
Look at the picture. First you fight and then you have a baby. Look.
And this is what I saw🙈.
Apparently, she saw the black shadow at the back and then saw the happy couple in the front and thought you fight and then you love the baby!
Today R2 told me while driving to school that her classmate, J had a baby sister.
Errr what R2, I saw his mum the other day. I dont think she had a baby in the tummy. kuch bhi phek mat.
No mum, he told me her name is St….
I go – Gosh, R2 what imagination you have. First someone gets a baby and then you even have a name for that baby. Please dont go about saying such things to people. Dont make people have imaginary babies.
R2 – I am serious mum. J told us during sharing time, he really has a baby sister.
I roll my eyes and go, Stop R2, dont make up tales please. She keeps insisting and I ignore.
And then I see her🙈 The lady and her 8 day baby. I am like OH MY GOD! You really did have a baby. R2 was not imagining it!
She goes, yes I did have a baby but what???
I tell her about R2 in the car and she laughs her head off. Did you think I was so fat in winter? I am like no no, I always saw you with a coat on. Pretty much foot in the mouthitis for me.
Anyway, I apologise to R2 afterwards and she goes, Its okay mum, we all make mistakes. Its good to forgive people..
