Today my wife and I went to the midwife (my wife is 32 weeks pregnant), and our midwife loaned us a book on homebirth for kids (Welcome with Love). On one page there is a picture of the baby with the umbilicle cord still atached. My almost 2 year old daughter looked at the picture, then said "a snake with the baby?" We explained that it is an umbilicle cord, and that it feeds the baby, then told her that she once had one, and showed her her belly button, explaining that that is where the cord was, but that it fell off. She looked very concerned, then looked at the book, then at her belly button, then back at the book. "Straw drinking the babies' belly?" she asked. Not exactly we explained. So she looked back at the book, then back at her belly button. Then she turned the book upside down, looked at it some more, then back at her belly. It was one of the funniest things she has ever done. Now she breifly flips through the rest of the book, but always comes back to that page, where she stops and looks worried.
