A Daughter's Question
July 19, 2007 2:49am CST
My 4 years old daughter asked me and my husband a question. "Mommy, Dad, how did you feel when you saw me come out of mommy's tummy?" Is this a sign that my daughter is feeling insecure of our feelings towards her? We always make it a point to let her know that we love her in fact she even uses our love for her to get what she wants which is bad we know. Or is this just plain curiosity on her part?

at her age, i would say she's just curious about it. in the mind of a child there are so many questions that they would like to ask. maybe not all their questions come out as they say it. maybe she would like to know if it hurt you when she came out of your tummy or something. :) hehehe i'd say that if a child is feeling insecure of your feelings for her, she'd ask directly "mom, dad, do you love me?" several times until she's satisfied that you really love her. :)

Not at all, in fact a lot of our friends can tell that she is a well loved baby. I guess on my part its curiousity, trying to see if I am missing something from her question. Its hard to guess what is on the mind of another person let along a four year old kid. Thanks.
