Gymnastics Camp,Where do Babies Come From, and the Mystery Curve

Gymnastics Camp:

Maddie started gymnastics camp today and she said that there were two girls in her class that were sassy and popular and weren't nice. I asked her what popular meant and she said, "not sharing, not nice to you, and just mean." Hmmmmm. . . .

Where do babies come from:
She also told Greg and I tonight how babies happen - she said that you ask God for a baby in your tummy and you get one. Then you wait lots of weeks for it to get bigger and then your tummy hurts. Then your doctor says it's time to get your baby and you go to the hospital and they cut your tummy and reach in and get the baby. Then they rinse it off and give it back to you and you both stay in the hospital until you aren't sick and then you go home. So, Greg and I asked how long does the baby stay at the hospital and I kid you not, Maddie said, "ummm, like 16 weeks." Well, I guess in our family that's not inaccurate!

The Mystery Curve:

Maddie kept asking me for help in how to write the mystery curve. I had no idea what she was talking about. Then she tried to draw it for me and I realized what she was drawing - ? So, a question mark is also called a mystery curve.

She is so smart. It's great learning through a child's mind!!

You have a couple of precious little gifts from God! Kids remind us not to take things so seriously...remember those days?

Not sure how I ran across your blog, but I started reading it a little over a month ago and have been blessed to read about your little miracles. Blessings, Brianne
