So we are reading and Gabe starts the usual questions -
- was Reece in your belly? (yes)
- was I in your belly? (yes)
- was Grayson in your belly? (yes)
and here is where it took a new turn...
- was Daddy in your belly? (no. He was in MeMaw's belly)
- who's belly were YOU in? (uh-oh...I can tell this is going to be unpleasant for me...I was in MY Mommy's belly.)
- Oh. Where's your Mommy? (Oh crap. I feel tears. She's far away.)
- Really far? Where? (I don't know, Gabe. But it is really far.)
- Is she going to come back? (ummm... I don't think so, honey.)
At this point I think Doug realized I was upset so he diverted Gabe's attention. So the question is - how/when do try and explain that my Mommy is dead? Won't that make him worry I will be dead?
