Looking at your navel

R — Why does my belly button look like a knot?

Mom — It’s where your umbilical cord was when you were in Mommy.  When the doctor snipped it, it became your belly button.

R — You mean he knotted it like a rope?

Mom — I’m not sure he knotted it, but I know he cut it because you didn’t need it anymore.

R — Are the veins and arteries that were connected to it still in my body?

Mom — I’m not sure how that works, but I’m sure we can look it up.

R — Yeah.  You probably need to do some science on that.
