I am a Builder's Wife
Me: You sort of poop it out but girls have a special baby hole for babies to come out of.
She was about 4 at this point and knew more than some 10 year olds about how babies are made.
This past week I got:
Isabelle: Why do you use a tampon?
Me: When you get to be a teenager your body will start to get ready in case you want to have a baby. A layer of blood forms inside of you so the baby has a soft place to grow and if there is no baby then your body gets rid of the blood through your baby hole and if you don't use a tampon it will run down your leg.
I am building a foundation for her relationship with God, her relationship with me and her relationships with others. Her education, her love of learning and her future career. Her habits, goals, desires, loves.
A few years ago when John was resistant to my attempts at discussing the plans for our future I finally said to him, "I know you think this life just happened to us but it didn't, I planned it."
