I was changing my son’s diaper yesterday and my daughter asked if she could help. I usually ask her to grab me a diaper & wipee so she feels like she’s included. Then she loses interest and walks away. Well, this time she decided to hover. I could see her staring at his “private areas” with a puzzled look. I decided not to say anything and just prayed she wouldn’t start asking questions. After a couple of seconds she asked, “Mumma, is that’s him’s pee-pee?” So I replied, “Yes, he’s a boy. His is different than ours.” Then she nonchalantly said, “Oh, him’s got a long one”, and walked away. My husband smiled from ear to ear and said,” That’s right. He takes after his daddy.” Hopefully she won’t repeat this one at daycare today.
