Julianna (she’s 9) has engorged herself on Doritos: Daddy, I’m full. I can’t eat another one.
Isabella (7): Yes you can. Your stomach can get bigger. Because, babies.
Me: Well, that’s not exactly how it works.
Iz: Daddy, stop. Let me explain.
I am out of the conversation.
Iz: You see, the baby grows in your stomach, so everything you eat, the baby eats.
J: Even, Doritos?
Me: Can I say something here? Because you are 7. Biology.
Iz: No, Daddy. No.
Iz: The baby keeps growing until your tummy is big and fat. Then it comes out. That’s why you have a belly-button.
J: Daddy, is this true?
Me: Um, well, no, but yeah, kinda.
Me: Who wants ice cream?
