"Mom, I think I'm pregnant."
Angie is 7 1/2 (the 1/2 is very important and must always be mentioned)
I managed to choke out "uh... why do you think that?"
"Well, my tummy is upset and it's 'big'."
Insert picture of beanpole 7 1/2 year old kid...
"Honey, I can assure you that you are not pregnant."
"But mom, how do you know for sure?? You told me that you didn't have to be married to have a baby. So how do you know I'm not pregnant?" Yeah... she asked that question a few weeks ago.
"Well, a very specific set of circumstances would have to occur in order for you to be pregnant."
"Uh... can we talk about this when we're not in the shoe aisle at Target?"
Since then I've given her the basics... vague basics... and told her we'd talk in more detail in a few years. I'm all for being open and honest, and giving her good information, but I'm just not ready yet...
