Daddy has a what!?

Our dear, sweet, smart little Emma says the darndest things! Anyone who spends time with her always leaves saying, "Wow, she really does talk a lot!" My response: yes she does! So yesterday while she was in the bathtub she pointed to herself (down there :) and asked: "What is that?"

Mom: Umm that is what a girl part looks like. (I know experts recommend teaching kids the proper names but if I taught Emma the proper names, every single stranger on the street would learn an unwanted anatomy lesson. So we stick with bum, girl and boy parts for now)
Emma: Oh. (I can see the information trying to process in her head)
Emma: Ummm, but...whats....
Mom: (Oh dear how do I explain this!?) Girls and mommies have girl parts and boys and daddys have boy parts. (There, enough said)
Emma: (Information still trying to process) Ohh.... so.........Daddy has a tail!
Mom: Ummmm....(what do I say!?) well....
Emma: Except not in the back, dust in the front!) (Information finally processed darn!)

Sorry for so much information :) but it was so funny. We stopped letting Emma see Daddy in the buff a LONG time ago, but obviously that little mind of hers remembered. How do you explain things like that to a very observational 2 almost 3 year old? So that was bath time yesterday, every day is such an adventure with her!

That's hilarious. Evie used to say stuff like that when she was Emma's age.
