I remember when Ashtyn was born, the whole dynamic of our family changed
This tiny little lady brought so much new joy and experience into our lives!
One day when she was still a newborn I was changing her diaper at Grandma's house
there were plenty of people around.
All the sudden Law -then 3- yells
"MOM! WHAT HAPPENED TO HER PENIS??"
I was so young and SO BADLY wanted to say
"OH NO! I DON'T KNOW? IT MUST'VE FALLEN OFF!"
But I didn't I really REALLY wanted to!
I just explained that girl's didn't have them just boys did.
Law was SO convinced that I had one though lol
"YOU DO HAVE ONE MOM! YOU DON'T HAVE ONE? Grandma, do YOU have one"
It was definitely a funny experience.
My sweet little 3-year old -Grey made an important discovery.
I was changing Ashtyn's diaper, of course, when he came in and...
Grey: "Wait! why does she does not have a penis?"
Mom: "because girls don't have penises just boys do"
Grey: "oh, ok" turn and....almost walk away...almost too easy.
Turn back panicked and yell-
"MOM! Do you do not have a penis?!?"
It was like all the sudden it clicked -Mom's a girl?? -She doesn't have one!
Mom: "Nope, -I'm a girl"
I knew what was coming next this scenario was all too familiar
Grey: "YOU DON'T?! WHY...WHAT...HUH!?"
-as if he'd just been betrayed or something
Then something new
Grey: "YOU DON'T HAVE ONE?? SHOW ME! I HAVE ONE -SEE!!..."
....Yeah it's a good thing we were at home for this one
Mom: "I'm not gonna show you, now put that thing away."
