boys and girls

so i knew we'd have the conversation about the differences between boys and girls bodies when Laithe was born.

here's how it's gone:

Gus: What's that thing Mama?

Mama: What thing?

Gus: That thing!

Mama: That's his penis. It's where his pee comes out.

Gus: Why it look like that?

Mama: Because he is a boy. Those are boy parts. You have lady parts.

(yeah, i don't know why i started calling them lady parts like 2 years ago but we're stuck with it now folks)

Gus: Where his poop come out?

Mama: Down there, pretty much the same as you.

Gus: But, but Mama -- what is that thing?

Mama: Those are his testicles.

Gus: I no have those. I have lady parts. You don't have them either. Daddy has them?

Mama: Yes, Daddy has them, and actually we kind of have them too, but they're on the inside.
(this is where i forget to add in that when they're on the inside they're called ovaries)

Several days later

Gus: Laithe has boy parts. I have lady parts. Mom has lady parts. Dad has boy parts.

Mama: yep. that's right.

Gus (galloping out of the room; singing loudly): AND MY TENTACLES ARE INSIDE!

yep. should have mention the ovary thing.
