I was changing Michael’s diaper the other day, and Flora happened to be looking on.
She’s a curious child.
Flora: Does his pee come out of that (pointing at his penis)? Or out of that (pointing at his testicles)?
Me: It comes out of his penis.
Flora: What’s that? (Indicating his testicles.)
Me: Those are his testicles.
Flora: Do they hold pee?
Me: No. (And that’s where this conversation should have ended. But noooo.) They hold sperm.
Flora: What’s sperm?
Me (silently to self: Shite!) (out loud): Sperm is what a daddy uses to help a mommy make a baby.
Flora then makes a serious of extremely awkward and hilarious hand gestures, pointing toward her body, indicating that she seems to know that a man’s special part goes into a woman’s special part for said baby making.
Me: Yes, Flora, the penis goes into the vagina. That’s how babies are made.
How do I get into these discussions?
