Where do babies come from?

Grace and I were looking through some pictures of us at the hospital when Eliza was born. This is how the conversation went:

Grace: How did you get Eliza out of your belly?
Me: I pushed her out
Grace: But where did she come out of?
Me: (i'll spare you these details, as i spared her most of them. i figured i'd let her ask for more details if she had more questions...which she didn't)
Grace: That must have hurt really bad!!!
Me: yeah, it did actually!
Grace: did you yell?
Me: yeah, I yelled lots until the doctor gave me some medicine, and then it didn't hurt anymore
Grace: you shouldn't have yelled so much, you probably hurt the doctor's ears
Me: yeah, he probably should have given me the medicine sooner!

I am getting such a kick out of the conversations we've been having lately...and I'm gonna start doing better at writing them down!!!
