Babies and Dragons
Hey, Alexander, do you think the baby in Mommy’s belly is a baby brother or a baby sister?
You think it’s a dinosaur?
“Yeah. Hug Monster.”*
Oh, okay. I bet the baby will really like getting hugs from you.
Pointing to his belly: “And Al-naner has dragon.”
You have a dragon in your belly?
Is it a nice dragon?
“Al-naner has dragon in belly. Dragon not bite you.”
. . .
Turns out it’s not a dinosaur or a Hug Monster. Just a healthy, human baby GIRL!
The jury’s still out on what type of dragon Alexander’s growing in his belly.
*Alexander’s a little concerned about monsters, so we frequently assure him that the only monsters allowed in our house are Kiss Monsters and Hug Monsters. Although sometimes the Tickle Monster sneaks in, too.
