My 4 year old has been asking me "Mommy where do babies come from?"

Chichi at 5 months old.
Chichi asked me "Mommy where do babies come from?" Oh My GOD!!!!! My soon to-be 5 year old daughter asked me where did she come from? I know, all of us parents have experienced this dilemma with our growing up child and it's not easy to answer them. I can't tell to my 4 year old daughter how she came out of this world precisely and accurately! Lol. Instead, I told her "Daddy and Mommy prayed to God to give us a very beautiful daughter and then GOD hear our prayers and so you came out of this world."
When Chichi was still 2 years old, I've been telling her stories that she came from mommy's tummy. And when she was still inside my womb I'm telling her that she's kicking me inside whenever I talked to her and when mommy sings to her. And when she was born we became so happy and our lives became more joyful than ever. But now, she's starting to ask too many questions, I still tell her the same story, over and over again. I want her to feel and always remember that we love her so much and we are very happy that she came into our lives.
Those simple stories are very memorable to my child and even tell exact story to her playmates and her grandpas and grandmas. Lol. And I don't know what will be her questions when she's at her young adulthood.

  1. Same with me, Once my 5 year old son asked the same. Wow! I can't handle the situation at first but lucky me to find a witty reply.. "Go asked your mom , for she had kept you in his tummy for 9 months.

  2. well, i think you've given her a very good answer, though not the scientific one. Many couples want to have children but can't, so your lovely daughter is really sent to you by God, no? :)

  3. Children grow more and more inquisitive as they grow old :) you are off the hook as of now but I am sure there will be more questions that will follow on the subject!

  8. Hehe it's exciting to know what more questions children would ask as they grow older. Just enjoy the moment with her now because kids grow up fast.

  14. OMG! what a dilemma! I do love how curious she is though, maybe you should rehearse more answers next time?

  15. It's very important too that you give them sensible answers, but not too technical. It's amazing how my mom handled all my questions back when I was young. Now she's laughing sharing the stories about the questions I asked her back then. Moms are creative!

  16. Haha... This is a question every mum (or dad) dreads! But I guess there are picture books and kids videos that will help you guide her to understand?

  17. Haha my daughter haven't asked me that question yet but I guess I have to prepare for my own answer :p But back then, while I was still breastfeeding my 2nd child, whenever my daughter sees us and asks questions, I tell her that she also drank from me before. And she feels a bit disgusted hahaha.

  18. This is such a sensitive time for parents! I think you handled it pretty gracefully :D

  19. One of the epic question parents "look forward" to. They grow up so fast and sometimes answers to their question can lead to additional follow up questions :)

  20. Simple answers first as they are younger, then the more complete version as they grow older. They will probably learn that one in school first nowadays. I don't know if that is better or not.

  21. This is just the start of dozens of 'baby questions' that you will encounter. Next time your kid will ask "why is the sky blue?".
