Luke: What food did you use to get Josie out?
Me: I didn't use food, she came out when it was time.
Luke: No, what foods did you use to get her out?
Me: Are you saying that since food goes in and poop comes out, you want to know what went in to turn into a baby?
Me: Ummmmm. OK, you know how chickens lay eggs?
Me: Well, mommies have eggs, but we don't lay them. They stay inside, turn into a baby and then the baby comes out.
