TMI Friday: A Baby Story

Welcome to another edition of TMI Friday!!
It's been a while since I had a good one to share, but this week's was too, too good . . .

This week we visited an area that I never thought I'd visit.
At least ... Not until my children were 21. 
Or 47 or something.

So my nine-year-old daughter has a new TV obsession:
TLC's "A Baby Story"
This actually comes as no surprise because I watched it ALL the time when I was pregnant with her.
And I'm really okay with it - it's educational, after all. 
But the other day, something dawned on me:
"I wonder if she actually comprehends what's going on here?"

So, I started the typical "mommy cross-examination routine"
The conversation went something like this:

Me: So, E - do you know what's going on here?
Miss E: Yep. That woman is in the first stage of labor. She's only dilated to a two, though.
Me: Do you know what that means?
Miss E: Yeah, the little hole in her cervix is getting bigger to let the baby through.
Me: !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Um... you know what the cervix is?
Miss E: (with a "duh" sound to her voice) Uh, yeah.
Me: Do you know where the baby comes out?
Miss E: Yes, mom. It comes out her vagina.
Me: you know about the . . . wait, did you just call me "mom"??
Miss E: (Gives me "the look")
Me: Well . . .  do you know how the baby GOT there?
Miss E: DUH, Mama - GOD put the baby there. Sheesh.
Me: (breathing a slight sigh of relief that she still doesn't know about THAT part yet ...) Oh, yeah... Right. God put it there. 

So what's YOUR TMI moment for the week? Go on, share in the comments!
Have a great weekend!

Hahahahaha. This is the most adorable thing I have ever read. I love that she know all about the stages of labor but not exactly all the details of how it all began. This is just precious!!
