Can I write the word penis on the world wide web??? Oh well....just did.
I was reading another blog of a gal with boys and it reminded me of something Mocha Frap No Whip said when he was about two years old. Two year olds have a funny spin on things as I'm sure you already know.
One day I was in the bathroom (back in the day before the fabulous toilet I wrote about below). Any mom will tell you that going to the bathroom ALONE is apparently a big no-no because the kids ALWAYS follow you into the restroom or knock incessantly while you're in there. Well Mocha Frap No Whip followed me in there and decided that he should help me wipe.
Yes, he thought I needed help.
I guess when you're two and everyone else thinks they should help you....well...you think you should return the favor.
So I explained to him I was okay and that I'd somehow manage to wipe myself.
Then he told me he wanted to see MY penis.
Ummm...not something I'd thought we'd have to discuss when he was only two and certainly not when I was in the bathroom somewhat unclothed.
"Honey, Mommy doesn't have a penis."
"Why you not have a penis?"
"Honey, God didn't give me one."
He burst into tears and began to wail, "God not give you a penis!!!"
I tried to explain that I was really okay that He didn't give me one and that we certainly had enough penises around our house.
I don't think he could hear me above all of his wailing. Poor guy. Traumatized all over the fact that God didn't give me a penis. I'm okay with it though....really...I am.
