Those Awkward Conversations

Scene I - Yesterday morning, in my room

Her: Mommy, why do you have hair on your parts?
Me: Well, it's what happens to people when they grow up.
Her: When I'm not a girl, will I have hair on my parts?
Me: Yes.
Her: Does Mrs. A.1 have hair on her parts?
Me, out loud: I would think so.
Me, to myself: Unless she has a brazilian or something...

Scene II - One afternoon, in the car with her grandparents

Her: Grandpa, do you have a penis?
Grandpa, taken aback: Um, yes I do.
Her: Daddy has a big penis. But A.2 has a little one.



1 her kindergarten teacher

I laugh because I totally hear the same stuff here.

Priceless. And now it is saved for posterity;)

I haven't had a penis conversation with Red yet. But she calls my breasts "elbows" for some reason.

Marinka said...

Hysterical. Although if grandpa didn't have a penis, that would also be pretty funny, but probably not for him.

One day KayTar was using the potty as Josh climbed out of the shower. I was in the next room and I heard her laughing hysterically, she said, "Daddy! What is that THING?!" and laughed and laughed. It was priceless.

She's also been known to pat breasts and say, "Oooh, I like your boobs."

KIDS!

Oh my goodness....you have to remind her of that story when she's older.

My son asked me, in a public restroom, why I had "fur." (His next question should have been why my face was so red.)

Lucky Daddy. (Lucky Magpie.)

What is it that they say about curiosity?

alejna said...

Okay, that did make me laugh out loud. And I don't usually laugh out loud when I'm reading. (My laughs are usually internal, sometimes escaping by way of a quiet snort.)

I can never stop laughing during these conversations.

Emersyn tells me all the time her penis hurts.

*sigh*

Body part conversations never stop being weird, I swear.

this story is dated, but some kinds of conversations never go out of style. my friend's preschool daughter once asked her dad, LOUDLY, as they were walking into a mcdonald's: "daddy, can i see your penis?"

Gwen said...

lol.

Oh yes, we have those, too. Almost word for word, in fact.

KC said...

Oh boy. Fun times ahead!

Vodka Mom said...

that reminds me of the story when my daughter ran to me in my room, and whispered, "Mommy!! Daddy has a worm growing out of his butt!!!!)

I had a conversation with my youngest daughter asked me once why her friend's mom didn't have any hair (apparently she had a Brazilian AND ironed in the nude). Awkward!

Wait until they start taking measurement in math. Puts it all into perspective a little more! (Although it does tend to be a sliding scale.)

the mama bird diaries said...

That is ridiculously hilarious. I'm still laughing. Is grandpa ok after all that?

painted maypole said...

private parts are just so interesting to kids!

Gotta Knit! said...

Oh lordie!

Kate Lord Brown said...

Oh yes - the universal fascination with boobies and willies!

Marmite Breath said...

BWAHAHAH!!!

phd in yogurtry said...

And does the Kg teacher read your blog?

Mad said...

Yes, it is all penis all the time around our house...and not in a good way. My Miss M's daddy also has a really big one too. Apparently.

Don Mills Diva said...

Yup - sounds familiar - we've got a penis obsession going on in our house these days!

crazymumma said...

Oh the humbling.
