I walked out of the room Bink was sitting at the table sipping apple
cider and singing quietly to herself. Triston was alternating sitting on
the couch reading Harry Potter and
helping Jordan put away dishes that were too high for him to reach, and
Jordan was emptying the dishwasher.. How the HELL did it all unravel in
under a minute!??!
This is how the conversation went..
And here I thought it'd be so nice to pee by myself. *eyeroll*
And now, for your viewing pleasure.. A very old blog I have to pull from the archives and share. This was July 2009.
The difference between boys and girls.
T. "Mommy, how come Faith doesn't have a bladder?"
Me: "Faith has a bladder"
T. "No she doesn't, only boys have bladders."
Me: "Everyone that pees has a bladder"
Quiet, while I ponder his statement.....
Me: "Triston, did you mean penis? Why doesn't Faith have a penis?"
T. " I dunno. What's a penis."
Me: *pointing in the general direction* "You know, your dinger"
T. "Ooooh. Yeah. Why doesn't Faith have a penis?"
Me: "Because she's a girl"
T. "Oh, because she's.. 'different'"
(meaning because she has autism)
Me: *trying so hard not to laugh* "No, just because she's a girl, boy parts and girl parts are different"
T. "Why don't girls have penises?"
Me: "Because then we wouldn't be girls, we'd be boys"
T. "Oh, so you are all.. 'different'"
*yes he did air quotes*
Me: "Yes son, boys and girls are ALL different"
