Bibadee Bobadee Boo

With perplexity she asks me, "So how did God put the baby in your tummy?" Hmmm...she's only four. I chew on my answer but she forges ahead. "Is it like magic, Mom?" I answer carefully. "Well, magic is pretend but God is real, honey. And He created our baby." She looks at me with those clear, blue eyes, taking in the wonder of it all. She nods as if to tell me that she understands. And then, in clear acceptance of my answer, she skips away, hollering over her shoulder, "So God just said 'Bibadee, bobadee, boo' and there was our baby!!!". Well, yes, I guess so.

So funny...yep, just bibadee bobadee boo...or something like that. Luke kept asking how he got out of my tummy...he was a c-section. Thank goodness he didn't ask about his brother and sister. :-)

Ah, yes...age appropriate answers. That ol' Holy Spirit seems to give us words when we need them, doesn't he?

Children have so many questions and it is so difficult to explain to them sometimes.
The words are found and given to us..
to express.
