The wheels. They are turning.

Boy Child: Mom? Do you know Michelangelo?

Me: The artist or the Ninja Turtle?

BC: What?

Me: Never mind.

BC: But do you know him?

Me: Not personally, but yes. I know him.

BC: You know his famous statue called "David?"

Me: Yes.

BC: Do you know that he created that statue and you can TOTALLY SEE DAVID'S WING-DANG-DOODLE?

Me: Yes, I know that.

BC, thinking hard: So...that's okay? He probably didn't even have to have anyone pose, right? He could just draw it from memory since he's seen his own wing-dang-doodle. And that's okay. Isn't that okay mom?

Me: Well, sure. It's fine. The body is nothing to be ashamed of.

BC, eyes wide: Really?

Me: Really.

Before I could say another word, he raced off to his room. He was quiet for several minutes before it dawned on me.


Me, shouting: BOY CHILD! DO NOT DRAW ANY PICTURES OF YOUR OWN PENIS.

Girl Child, poking her head slightly out of her room: I don't even want to know what's going on here.




This is my life.


Try not to be jealous.

HAAAAAAAAAA! I love your children, even if they do make me think about wing dang doodles at 7 AM.

PS Just to blow Boychild's mind, you should play him the old blues song called Wang Dang Doodle. I don't think it's about penises, but it's hard to know for certain.

Oh wow. I have five sons. I know how it is.

There's a centuries-old reproduction of this statue at a museum where I live. It's quite impressive... maybe 8 feet tall, situated in a rotunda under special lighting.

You ever come visit me, we'll take Boy AND Girl Child to the museum. There's a lot of cool stuff there. love, Val

Seriously, girl. If you lived anywhere near me, Boy Child and Girl Child would be babysitting my kids. For however much they wanted. Because I want their awesomeness to rub off on my three crazies.

I think all boys have a fascination with Wang Doodles(Can't figure out if capitalisation is required - maybe yes for David, but not so much for small boys). I have three sons and they all went through stages like this. Funny post. Loved it.
