I know this is so not surrogacy related, but I just had to share what I experienced with my 4 year old today. My kids give me a good laugh on a daily basis, but today, I was hysterical!!! Hope you enjoy a good laugh =)
I was changing Liliana's (the baby I have been a nanny for) diaper on the couch. I guess the boys are usually not around when I am completing this task. But, Jackson and I had a really funny conversation when he was watching me today:
As I take her diaper off, Jackson approaches slowly, mouth wide open with concern. I watched him from the corner of my eye to watch what his reaction was. He then pulls the waist of his shorts out, looks down at his family jewels, and then back at Liliana's diaper area, still looking as if he were in shock.
Me: "What's wrong, Jackson?"
Jack: "What happened to Liliana?? It's gone!!!"
Me: (So trying not to laugh) "What's gone, Jack?"
Jack: "The baby has 2 butts!!!! Her pee-pee is gone!!"
Me: (Now laughing hysterically) "She doesn't have 2 butts, honey. She's a girl, so she has no pee-pee."
Jack: (Pointing at her area) "Then what is THAT?!?"
Me: (Now in tears) "Girls don't have pee-pees, they have vaginas."
Jack: (Now with a very embarrassed smile on his face, hands pressed against his cheeks) "That's so funny, mommy. I like that word."
Oh my goodness!! I still am laughing at this hours later. Daddy is going to love this story when he gets home. Now, let's hope Jackson doesn't love this word TOO much because we will have a big issue on our hands =)
