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.
