THE THREE WAYS I USED TO THINK BABIES WERE BORN
before I got taught about the birds and the bees, little me thought it was possible to choose which way the baby came out:
- •through the mouth 👄baby swims up through the throat and out from the mouth (didn't ever think about how it'd fit - though I remember wondering how the baby didn't get hurt by the mother's teeth when it came out)
- •morphed out the belly 👽which just fused together again once the baby was out. if only this was the reality! maybe I watched too many alien films as a child..
- •a long plane journey ✈️when I was 3 we adopted my sister from China, so I thought you had to go on an airplane if you wanted to have a baby. (I guess seeing all the other prospective parents at the orphanage made this seem true!)
