On one of our somewhat difficult car journey’s over Christmas I was sat trying to fall asleep. Baby H and S were sat in the back fighting over a taggie blanket, Hubby was singing loudly to a terrible 80s song and Z was obviously deep in thought, as through the chaos a little voice piped up with.
“Mummy, did I come from an egg”
Z “you know like on ‘Happy feet’ like the penguins?”
me “errrm, no you came from inside Mummy, humans don’t lay eggs”
Hubby stops singing ( phew ) and says “animals that come from eggs only have small brains as the eggs don’t have much food in them, we have big brains“.
Z “but does H have a small brain cause she doesn’t eat much?”
*Chuckles all around*
Fighting over the blanket resumes, terrible singing resumes….
