So most of you know that I substitute teach. I mostly sub over at my old school that I worked at last year. It's a school for kids with behavioral issues: they got kicked out of their regular schools for being too violent and disruptive in their classes.

I have been subbing a lot in this first grade class all year (out of the 100 days of school, I've subbed in that class at least 20 times). In the school, classes have about 7 kids max in each class, and 2 adults: a teacher and a para. This first grade class is awesome, and the kids love me.

So today, when I was lining the kids up for lunch, one of the kids in the class, who is on the autism spectrum, was doing his arm flapping thing, and accidentally flapped into my belly. I told him to be careful next time and be aware of his surrounding and control his body. Well the para in the room with me (who's one of my friends) told him, he had to be careful because I had a baby in my belly trying to grow. The kids got so excited and all wanted to touch my belly and talk to the baby, it was so cute!

But the autistic boy just got really confused, and he looked at me and asked, "How does the baby get out of you? Do you poop it out?" My friend and I weren't sure how to answer that, so we just kinda let it go. But all day, he was asking about pooping out the baby. So finally, when his mom came to pick him up, he asked me one more time, how the baby comes out, do I really have to poop it out?? We told him to ask his mom. The para walked him down, and came back, she was laughing hysterically. I guess he wasn't even halfway down to his mom when he shouted loudly, "Do you poop out babies?!"

Oh kids, they say the darndest things :-D Can't wait until mine begins to speak, I think I might have to keep a journal or something of all the strange/funny things he says.

Hahahahaha, I work with kids with autism, so I find this extra hilarious! I work with a 7 year old who is super excited about me having a baby and even more excited that his mom is pregnant, also. His aunt has a baby last year, so he knows what it's about. (He loves to talk about babies drinking breast milk, haha.) I have never heard him mention how babies get out. I sure hope he doesn't ask me! (I would tell him to ask his mom, too, but I would probably die if he asked me that.)

I love it! The little boy I babysit that has Autism told me that the doctor was going to pull the baby out of my mouth and that it was going to hurt. He also is very concerned about the baby being sad because it's in there all alone. He's so sweet about the baby.

I have worked with autistic kids for 5 years, and it never ceases to amaze and amuse me some of the things they come up with. The way their brains work. I got a kick out of today. Made me miss working with them full time.

LOL! I think actual child birth would be preferable to having the baby pulled out of my mouth! Yikes! Super sweet about him being concerned that the baby is lonely.

My oldest asked the same question until he was there when Everett was born. Kids are funny!
