And that's why moms have teeth...

It never fails when Emma is in the car with me and there is silence for more than four minutes, something funny and random is going to eventually come out of her mouth.

Today after the mind-churning silence, she sporadically throws out very intense question;
"Mom, how did Hope and I eat when we were in your belly?"

I began to explain to my intrigued child that babies get the food that their mommies eat. And as always, I knew that my ever so down-to-earth-simple-minded-five year old would have something to conclude.....and so she did...

"Ohhhhhhh, I see...that is why God gave moms teeth! So they can chew chew chew their food up good to make it into juice and then the baby can eat the juice since they don't have teeth."

She's so clever.
(....and just for the record, after that conversation there was another moment of silence follow by, "Mom, where did Hope and mine pee and poop go in your belly?")
