Maggie: "Mom, why don't girls have wieners?"
Me: "Well, girls got boobs instead."
Maggie: "Oh." Long pause. "But Pablo has boobs."
For those of you not in the know, Pablo is the penguin from Backyardigans.
Me: "No, he doesn't. I just looks like he does."
Maggie: "Oh." Another long pause. "Well mom, where are their pee parts then?"
Me: Holding in a laugh. "The pee comes out of their wieners."
Maggie: Sounding much relieved, "Oooh! So that's why they can pee standing up!"
How glad am I she asked me this? No, really, I am. I'm glad she can ask those kinds of questions without getting embarrassed or worse, going to some friend who has a crazy idea of things. Although, I'm not really sure why she has this fascination with wieners.
