Sam is not a Leg Man
Leah was sitting at our dining room table the other morning, enjoying a breakfast with the boys. I had left for work and was only privileged enough to hear this second hand.
Noah: [with no shirt on, index fingers touching his nipples] Mommy, what are these pointy things?
Leah: [trying not to laugh] Those are your nipples, sweetie.
Noah: Oh . . . do goilehs [read: girls] have them too?
Leah: Yes, boys and girls both have nipples.
Sam, listening intently, decided it was time to join in the conversation.
Sam: But boys have penises and girls don't.
Leah: That's right, Sammy. Only boys have penises and both boys and girls have nipples.
Sam: But Mommy, girl's nipples are bigger and ROUNDER.
As he said this, Sam cupped his hands up at his chest.
