That One's Outta The Park!

Sammy is five. He also is a pretty sharp cookie. AND he rides the school bus. Multiply the factors in this equation and you get this entirely unprovoked question from the cheap seats:
Sammy: Mommy, how do babies come out.
Me: Do you mean how babies get out of their mommies' bellies? (I'm not new at being his mom. He could very well be asking how they get out of their diapers. On a day when both my computer and my vacuum cleaner broke, you can be sure that Sammy meant to ask just exactly what you think he asked!)
Sammy: Yes, how do babies got out of their mommies.
Me: Well (STEP UP, WOMAN!!) they come out of the vagina?
Sammy: What's the fah-g-eye-ner?
Me: That is what women have instead of a penis.
Sammy: lost in silent thought

Set, Match, Game.

Shout out to Esther & John, who have set a great example with Lulu. At 2 1/2, their precious darling daughter gratuitously confirms the gender of many people in whom she comes in contact.

Amen. "Uncle Lou, you are a boy because you have a penis!"

Hope you are spending a great deal of time prepping for part 2 of the question....because I know Sam and there will be a part 2-some time when you least expect it-like maybe in the middle of Christmas dinner!

I have great faith in Sam. If you think he is somehow NOT ruminating my dear daughter, you are fooling youself. I look forward to the next inning.
