Three Year Old Musings
Alex: "Mama, my penis is itchy."
Me: "Did you clean it last night in the bath?"
"You have to keep it clean and take good care of it. You only get one penis in life so you must take care of it, Alex."
"I want a new penis."
"You can't get a new penis. You only have this one."
"But I want a new penis...a big one like Daddy."
OMG! I about died. Thank goodness I a) did not have anything in my mouth, b) was not visible to him, and c) had an empty bladder (I am sure I would have peed on myself). I was hurting from trying to contain the laughter.
"Well, Alex, Daddy's penis was not always as big as it is now."
"It was little once?"
"Yes, honey. Your penis will grow as you grow up. So relax and take care of growing."
I think we have controlled the situation for now. I can't tell you how difficult if was not to bust out into laughter and tears. Hilarious!
