It finally happened

Conversation at Wal-Mart yesterday: (which I've been waiting for weeks to come up)

Ellie: "Mommy, is that baby ever going to come out so I can be a big sister? It's taking a long time."

Me: "I know. But we only have about 2 more weeks."

Ellie: (no concept of weeks whatsoever)" Ugh! "

(expression of deep thinking crosses her face)
"So, Mommy, just how is that doctor going to get that baby out of your shirt?"

Me: "Um, it's going to be really hard work....hey look over there- TOYS!"

...and scene.

Other options...the baby will pop out of your belly button. Or, when the baby is ready she'll say, "Beam me out Scottie." Or, Mommy is a magician! All you have to say is "Abracadabra" and poof, baby is born! Don't we wish it worked that way??? And then Ellie would think you're a really cool magician!
