Penis Talk

Lately, Hazel's been thinking a lot about penises. I'm not really sure why. Today at the library, she wanted to read the boy version of Once Upon A Potty, and more than once, she reminded me that Joshua, the story's main character, had a penis. She likes to review who has a penis in our family, and who doesn't. The last few days, she's been more verbal about it than usual.

Overheard in the bathroom on Saturday morning, as Mike was finishing up his shower:

Hazel: Dada, is it time to go on our bike ride, yet?

Mike: Almost... I'm not quite ready. And neither are you. You need your shoes and a jacket, right?

Hazel: Right!

Mike: And I need to put my clothes on. I can't go outside like this.

Hazel: Yeah! Nobody wants to see your penis!

And tonight, in the middle of her favorite bedtime story, which, rest assured, features no penises, she declared:

"I would be so proud to have a penis, and stand up and pee. I wish I had a penis. When I grow up, I want to have a penis!"

Usually she says she wants to be a musician when she grows up. But hey, peeing while standing is pretty cool, too. Dream big, Haze. Dream big.

I almost said something to that effect in the post, but my mom reads. She would not laugh at that. (But I love it!)

And if she goes in business for a career, she will continue to wish she had alot of penises on a jar on her desk. LOL. I know I do!!! Also, she will spend countless hours explaining to the penis endowed that she too can pee standing up and even with the awkwardness make less of a mess. You go Hazel!!!

I love that. The things kids say are so honest, so pure, so simple, and yet it makes you think, "Why not?". Hazel sounds like a very intellectual young lady...This has given me a great chuckle today, and boy did I need it.
