Mommy… where do babies come from?
Well… you see…
I stared into her big brown innocent eyes and thought to myself: “Wasn’t this question only supposed to come up years from now?”
I really didn’t expect this now and to be honest, I wasn’t prepared for it. I couldn’t even find the right words to say to her.
I grew up in a conservative home. My mom did not speak to me about this when I was growing up, I somehow figured it out on my own…. But then I guess that it’s also because it was never a topic that we spoke about openly. I was the only child so I assumed the stork always favored me.
My daughter is only 4-years-old with a big imagination, do I really need to tell her the truth at this age?
I know what you’re thinking. “They,” say that we should tell our kids the truth from the beginning but let’s be honest here, have you told your kid that Santa doesn’t exist? What about the Easter bunny or the tooth fairy?
My daughter lives in a fairy-tale world filled with big and small adventures, the last thing I want to tell her right now is about how sexual intercourse happens. I’m not comfortable with it, maybe when she’s 8-years-old we can have this discussion again.
So, I asked my daughter, “Where do you think babies come from?”
She replied: “When mommy eats lots of food, her stomach gets big and a baby grows.”
I looked at her and chuckled.
Is she saying I’m fat in a nice way?!
If you’re looking for another way to answer your child’s question, then you need to watch the hilarious family adventure from Warner Bros – STORKS – that’s if you haven’t watched it yet!
STORKS send out a strong message about relationships between a parent and child and the importance of family.
I grew up believing that STORKS delivered babies so it was fascinating to see how an animation of the myth would turn out.
I’m excited to announce that Johnson’s® has partnered with STORKS, to promote the launch of the DVD in South Africa this March 2017. The movie is now available on DVD and Blu-ray at your local stores. The limited edition of STORKS Johnson’s® Baby Gentle All Over Wipes will feature the film characters on the pack.
To celebrate this partnership, there will be a national competition held in selected retailers where you can win a Johnsons Baby Wipes hamper with a free STORKS toy to the value of R500, all you need to do is purchase a limited-edition pack and follow the instructions on it.
My son and daughter love exploring, they both are little adventurers. My son isn’t scared to pick up bugs and play with them while my daughter is currently into gardening. I always need to carry wet wipes around!
Messy play comes with messy toddlers but don’t stress because the STORKS pack is ready to clean up any mess with 1 wipe at a time.
Johnson’s Gentle All Over Wipes are perfect for older babies, effectively cleansing everything from wet bottoms to dirty hands and delicate faces with their special NO MORE TEARS® formula, which is mild enough to use even around the eyes.
To take this celebration further, I am giving away 2 hampers worth R500, which includes Johnson’s limited edition STORKS Wipes and the DVD of STORKS movie.
