My two year old girl's favorite word is "Why?", as in "Why are you ____ ?" She will often have follow-up why's, but that's OK. Her smiles make up for any potential aggravation.

You may need to hold off on having your 4 year old see "The Nativity Story" (not that you have time or energy to take the whole crew to the movies right now!). They do have a circumcision scene, and while the actual cutting is off-screen, it was still painful to watch. I can just imagine the questions she would ask out loud during the movie.

By the way, Happy New Year to the Adams!

when my daughter was born my son who was 2 at the time kept commenting on her "little butt" and wanted to know why she had a front butt and back butt. It cracked me up every time.

Welcome to my world.

We have endless discussions about who has one and who doesn't. Max has been know to loudly and proudly announce that he has one and Rebecca is very upset that she doesn't.

when my daugter was born, her brothers, 4 & 8 noticed the first time they saw me change her diaper- that she was "different". they pointed to her genital area and said- what's that? being caught off guard, i said that's her vagina. "Vagina?" they screamed. vagina ! vagina ! vagina wyna! they ran through the house singing this at the top of their lungs!

Always up for discussion around here, especially now that Bent is potty-trained...why does he get to stand up?

been there had this talk a few different times LOL.. oh and the talk about the vet and the dog we had that one too only with the cat, and then it went into the long talk about why we had the cat fixed and why we didn't want kitten, which lead into "but mom if the cat doesn't get married it can't have kittens" LOL.
