Excerpt - Eight-year-old boy
Pregnancy and childbirth
One of Brandon's fascinations, or borderline obsessions, is pregnant women and the childbirth process. So I used it as an education tool to teach him where people come from. The mommy makes the baby in her belly and when the baby is all done the doctor helps the mommy deliver the baby. That's it, plain and simple.
He could spot a pregnant woman a mile away.
Shopping in Wal-Mart one day, I was checking out at the register when I saw Brandon staring at a heavy-set man sitting on a bench at the end of the checkout line. His wheels were turning and I knew what was coming next. Totally anticipating his next move I tried to redirect him, but before I could stop him he ran over to the man, grabbed the guy's belly and asked, "Excuse me, sir, do you got a baby in there?"
I guess I had failed to mention that only mommies have babies.
