Explanations Bad to Worse
Today on the car ride home from picking up my hubby, Phantom, from work with the girls in tow, my husband and I were commenting on how healthy and lean his co-worker looked, who had had a surgery due to cancer. My Avant Garde Gal (AGG) who is nearly 6YO picked up on the world surgery.
AGG: What's surgery?
Phantom: It's where a doctor cuts you open to remove something inside your body, or fixes it.
AGG: Ew. I don't want to have that. That will hurt.
Phantom: But they give you medication so that it won't hurt. Although you'll be sore after.
AGG: I don't want to have 10 kids and have them cut me like Mom.
QS: Sweetie, not everyone has to have a c-section. You might get lucky and have your baby naturally.
AGG: What does that mean?
QS: That means instead of the doctor cutting your belly open, the baby will come out of your vagina.
AGG: THAT IS SO GROSS! It will stretch out my privates. It will hurt. I AM NOT HAVING ANY BABIES!
