The Baby Boy's big sisters are trying their hardest to give him a complex before he even learns to crawl. They routinely come in during diaper changes and comment on his "cute, little p----!" They think everything about him is fascinating.
The other day, the four year old again came in to observe a diaper change and this time she asked, "What's that big thing under his p----?" I told her the proper name for that particular body part, but she was skeptical. She asked if her big brother also had them. And then she asked if her dad did. I wanted to stop pursuing this line of questioning, so I informed her that all boys did.
"Really? Does our dog have them too?"
"Uh. Um. Well, he used to."
"What happened to them?"
This continued on through an explanation about our not wanting him to make puppies and that the vet did the procedure.
I just hope that next time she's mad at her brother, she doesn't suggest we take him to the vet.
