Ants in my tummy

A recent conversation between myself and my 2 1/2 year old daughter -

S - Why are you big?
Me - What part of me is big?
S - Your tummy is big.
Me *deep breathing* - I have a big tummy 'cuz I had FIVE babies in my tummy before.  (pointing at my tummy in a circular motion) I had Tilor, Zeyon, you, Harrison & Ethan.  That is a lot of babies.
S - And Ants?
Me - Ants?   *thinking hard*  You mean France?!?!?
S - Yeah.  You have "Ants" in your tummy too?
Me - No.  Not yet.
S - I have 10 babies in my tummy.  One for Tilor and Daddy and Ants and Daddy and You.
Me - Are you going to keep any babies for you?
S - Yep.  The Daddy one and the one for you.
Me - I am glad you are giving a baby to France.  Do you think they will like your baby?
S - Yeah.   Let's go get Coffee now.  {Coffee is the name of our new rabbit - she named her.}

When I was pregnant with my daughter her nickname was 'Tater Tot'.  During one Sunday School class the teacher asked my almost 3 year old what his mommy had in her tummy and he replied - A Tater Tot!
Guess I'll have Ants in my belly this pregnancy.


  1. So cute! And what a great memory!

  2. She's so cute, but I don't think I've ever heard her say two words before. I love when kids say such cute or random things.

  3. I love this story. I can just hear her saying "ants".


Some girls like chocolate - I like comments!
Leave some love. <3
