I was such a doofus when I was pregnant and thought that if women have a vaginal birth, then they have the rest of their years to pee themselves whenever laughing, sneezing, and breathing. Then I had an emergency c-section and found that despite that, my bladder control is a lot to be desired.
The hummingbird (age 3): Mommy, what’s this?
Me: That’s a pad.
Hummingbird: Why? I want to wear it.
Me: Because mommy pees herself sometimes.
Hummingbird: Can I put one on?
Me: No sweetie, you don’t need that for a while.
Hummingbird: Why do you have them?
Me: I already told you, mommy pees herself sometimes.
Me: Because a few years ago you were in mommy’s belly and after mommy had you, my vagina got large.
Hummingbird: Your bagina got large?
