So, this morning, I was watching an old episode of "Beverly Hills 90210." It's the one where Steve's mom is trying to get Steve's childhood rival and her TV son to do a reunion show. Steve and Chuck get into a fight, and Chuck then makes a big deal about Steve being adopted. So, Steve decides to go find his birth mom in New Mexico. During the show, Steve's mom tells him he was "chosen."
Big Sis then asked me if she was chosen. What do you say to a 6 year old who asks that?
My answer? "No, baby. You chose me with help from God." She asked me how that was possible.
I told her that when a woman has a baby, the baby chooses the parents in heaven before he or she is born.
That was probably one of my better "Mommy Answers."
Now, don't ask me what I'll say when she's older and asks the real "where do babies come from" question.
