Last night in the tub The Boy discovered part of his " manhood" that he didn't know he had. He was actually quite concerned about it, wondering why he had them and why he couldn't just rip them off. ( oh yeah, the thought of that sends pain shooting through my legs...) I very calmly and rationally explained to him that it would be very painful if he tried and that he needed them for later use in life, when he grew up to be a man and got married and wanted to have babies. " but why?" he said so innocently. " If you ever want to have babies, you have to keep them", I said. " And if you have any further questions about this, go see your father."
Its special bonding moments like these that make being a mother totally worth it........... ;-)
