I am changing the baby's diaper. Lucy
is standing on a stool beside me, watching intently.
LUCY: Baby Will is a boy, and I am a girl. Right, Mommy?
LUCY: Daddy’s a boy.
ME: Yes. What about Mommy? Am I a boy or a girl?
LUCY: You’re a girl!
ME: Right again! So, do you know what the difference is between boys and girls?
LUCY: I don’t know...
ME: Well, boys have penises, and girls have vaginas.
LUCY: I have a VAGINA!
ME: Yes, you do.
LUCY: And Baby Will has PEANUTS!
ME: Just don’t tell that to him…
