I might just make this a fairly regular feature-a lot of good stuff comes out of our dinner discussions.
We were eating dinner when Eli asked me, “Mom, before you were born did you want to be a girl?”
I chuckled, “Well, before you were born did you want to be a boy?”
“You did? I can’t remember before I was born so I don’t know if I wanted to be a girl or not. Can you remember before you were born?”
“Well I can and I wanted to be a boy.”
“Are you sure you can remember before you were born?”
At this point there’s some cross talk with the little boys about being a boy and how it’s better than being a girl, that kind of thing.
Then Simon pipes in with, “Being a girl is bad for me. I don’t like panties. Panties aren’t good for me. I don’t wear panties, I’m a boy.”
