The other night my twins were lying the bed squished together being silly. I sat on the edge of the bed and told them that they used to be squished together inside my tummy. I told them that before they became squished they were very, very tiny and they would swim in my tummy. They looked amazed.
The next morning I could hear them chatting in the kitchen. Hallie said, "CJ, we was squished in Momma's tummy."
"Yep," replied CJ, "and we was swimmin' in Momma's tummy."
I came into the room and CJ looked at me with a dazed look.
"Momma. I was in your tummy?"
I told him he was. Then he asked a question I don't think I'll ever forget....
"Momma. You eat me?"
