Olivia asked us this evening how Felix will get out of Mommy's tummy. We explained that most children come out a special, different way, but Felix will need help from the doctor to get out. This piqued her 4-year-old curiosity and naturally wanted to know more. I can't really remember the whole conversation, but here are the highlights:
- The doctor uses a sharp knife to cut her tummy. Olivia asked if she will cut it in half or in quarters, and we said just just one cut.
- This cut wont hurt Mommy because she will get special medicine.
- The doctor will take baby Felix out of Mommy's tummy, then she will sew her back up using a needle and thread. This also wont hurt Mommy.
Once we explained the stitches, she started laughing and said, "That's really silly!" And when you think about it, it does seem a little silly.
