Pregnancy according to a 5 year old (1)  

The funniest thing of being pregnant when your kid is old enough to have cohesive thought and talk, is they come up with their own interpretation of what is going on as you get bigger. Nina puts together the most random thoughts about pregnancy. Here’s one good one.
Nina: Hey Mommy, you’re like a machine!

Me: What!?

Nina: Well, you are making Di Di (Little Brother) right? Like his arms and head and stomach and stuff. Like a machine! That’s so cool! Can I do that?

Me:I’m not sure if ‘making’ is the right terminology here…. And NO, YOU CAN’T DO THAT FOR ANOTHER 25 YEARS!

(My daughter just bloody called me a baby making machine….)

Nina: Jeez Mommy, why are you so mad all the time?

一歳半の子供を抱えての妊娠は大変。でも5歳になると、違う意味で大変。頭と口が回る分、何を言い出すかが予想外の方向から来るんだもの。新菜さん、それなりに考えて、色々言ってくるから面白いやらなんやら。子供なりに考えてるんだけど、なんか、ちょいずれなのが楽しい。

新菜:ママって機械みたい!

私:ハイ!?

新菜: だって、弟、お腹で作ってるんでしょ、あしとか、あたまとか、おなかとか。機械みたい!かっこいいね、新菜にもできる?

私:作る、ってのとちょっと違うんだけど。って、後25年はダメ!

(今、母ちゃんを赤ちゃん工場って呼んだな...)
新菜:何怒ってるの?

いや、怒ってるんじゃなくて、うーむ。何というかね、説明がね。ふむ...
