So, being the SAHM I am, sometimes I do not get to use the bathroom without a 3 year old audience. If he is bored, then he comes right along with me, although I do make him stay outside in the hallway.
I do not consider myself a prudish person, I do not shy away from Mr. Personality seeing people in their "natural" states if the chips happen to fall that way. I never close the bathroom door when I am with him, so from infancy, me in the bathroom is a familiar sight.
Only recently has he seen fit to play twenty questions. I should have been more prepared, I should have seen it coming.
You see, I have sacrificed, so that you all may learn from my mistakes.
Mr. Personality: Mama, are you going pee-pee?
Gina: (sigh) Yes, dear.
Mr. P: Is the pee-pee coming out of your own pEnis?
Gina: No baby, girls don't have one of those.
Mr. P: Why?
Gina: (reverting to classic) Because they just don't!
Mr. P: Then where is it coming out from?
Mr. P: Your own booty?
Gina: Uh, not exactly...
I was completely thrown for a loop. I am all for giving children the correct anatomical names for things, but at that particular moment, I did not feel comfortable with my preschooler knowing the word urethra. I had visions of him at Easter letting everyone know where Mommy's pee-pee comes out of, and I just didn't want to go there. Actually at that very moment, I'm not even sure that urethra was what sprang to mind.
Yet another lesson on how not to have a bodily function discussion with your three year old, courtesy of Gina.
You are welcome.
