Nothing like a good bath time conversation to get you ready for bed.

Cheese: “What are these blue things on my legs?”

Mama: “They are called veins and they take blood to all of the different parts of your body.”

C: “Are there veins in my penis?” (Remember…he’s in the tub, so penis talk is very, very natural and at our house very, very frequent.)

M: “Yes. There are veins in your penis.” (No made up names in our house. We call it what it is.)

C: “What are these things next to my penis?”

I really wasn’t prepared to have an anatomy lesson this evening, but…

M: “Those are your testicles.”

C: “What are tiscals?”

M: “They help mommies and daddies have babies.” (Obviously, the most simple answer I could think of on such short notice.)

C: “I thought mommies had babies?”

M: “Well, they do…and daddies help.” (Again, feeling the need to not provide too much information that could quickly lead to other conversations that I’m not ready to have yet.)

C: “So…mommies carry the babies in their tummies. So, what do the daddies do then?”

M: “Good question, buddy. Good question.”
