I'm sorry, I kind of feel like I'm spamming this post, but my kids keep cracking me up. I promise I'll take a break after I share these 2 zoo stories
2yo DD is potty training at the moment, and I usually put her in a diaper when we go to the zoo because there are long stretches between bathrooms. Today she stayed dry all day! We also saw lots of fun animals, had snacks, played at the playground, and petted goats at the petting zoo. Towards the end of the day, we were chatting with one of the keepers who asked DD what her favorite part of the day was. She answered, "I go poopy in the toilet, and Mommy maked it go way. And I say 'bye bye yucky poop.'"
5yo DS really enjoyed seeing the zebras today. There are a daddy zebra, 2 mommy zebras, and 2 baby zebras at our zoo. One of the baby zebras is quite obviously a boy zebra. I made a general comment about the boy zebra, and mentioned that he was a he. DS said, very loudly (of course. They're never quiet when they say things like this ) "Mommy, I know he's a boy because I can see his big, black p*nis. How come he's just a baby but he has such a big p*nis?" I'll let you imagine the conversation that followed between him and the little girl who was shocked and outraged at DS's use of a "naughty word" and DS's firm protestations that it's the right word, and not naughty, and he should know because he has one and she doesn't...Suffice it to say, we hurried off to see the flamingos
Sis has run into correct info/names is naughty or in one case evil.
Oldest Niece 8 or 9 and group of kid having a conversation. Babies come up. Boy being raised in a very fundamentalists home - God makes a man fall in love with a woman, they get married, and God gives them a baby.
ON - NO! My parents were never married.
Boy No they have to be married or god won't give them a baby. (Boy thinks sis is ON mother ON corrects him on that)
Couple more rounds. Niece what are you 5 they Played scrabble and had me.
Boy's Mom wanted ON, Sis, and BIL excluded from group some people are friends from Pre-K guess who got excluded. (Not Sis and BIL)
A couple of other times. Loren or Brett have used correct terms - and an Adult scolded them and told Sis or BIL they had used naughty terms. The adult is coolly informed that using correct terms means they can accurately describe any illness or injury.
