This story is actually my sister’s but I thought it was cute enough that I wanted to repeat it.
In the presence of her 3-yr-old son my sister happened to mention something about her 5-yr-old daughter peeing her pants.
“Susie* can’t pee her pants mom, she doesn’t have a penis,” her son says.
“Actually sweetie, girls pee too, just like boys, even though they don’t have penises,” she tells him.
In typical 3-yrs-old fashion he tells her that she’s wrong (3-yr-olds know everything after all) “No she can’t, mom. But I can because I have a penis and Billy* (his 7-yr-old brother) can because he has a penis and dad can because he has a big, big, big, big….”
So congratulations to my sister Melanie.
*Some names have been changed, because I felt like changing them.
