Boy: Oh. Are you having a peeeeepeeeee?
Me: Yes I am.
Boy: Oh. Are you having a poooopoooo too?
Boy: You don’t have a penis moooommmmeeee.
Me: No, no I don’t. You’re right!
Boy: I do. It’s right here. Wanna see?
Me: Oh, no thanks sweetie.
Boy: Moooommmmeeeee, are you all done? Come here love [ed. note: seriously... in an adult serious voice he called me love].
Me: Where are we going?
Boy: Come here so I can wipe your bottom. (with hands on shoulder pulling me off the throne)
Me: Oh no thanks. I can do it myself. How about you go play with Thomas while mommy finishes up?
Boy: Ooooh, you did good work Mommmeeeee, way to go!
And who thinks their kids don’t listen to every word we say?!?!
