Watermelon Seeds

Ah, the age old question of little kids: Will you grow a watermelon in your belly if you accidentally swallow the seed?

We read a book this morning about a mouse who swallowed a watermelon seed by accident and was scared he'd grow a watermelon in his tummy, so his best friend swallowed one too to make him feel better.

One of the kids said, "Yeah, you won't grow a watermelon in your belly if you just swallow one seed!"

They all agreed until G said, "Yeah, but if you swallow a whole bunch of them, then drink a lot of water and open up your mouth every time the sun is out you will!"

I thought for sure they'd all say, "No you won't." But instead I heard a chorus of, "Oh yeah, that is true!"

Is your baby-bump starting to show? I'm just wondering if that's what started this conversation. :)

Well, DUH!!!! I just reread this post, and see why you were having this conversation. How the heck did I miss that the first time!?
