The other night Todd and the boys were sitting on the couch reading, what else, a dinosaur book together. Todd was reading all of the factual information to the boys and then they would discuss the pictures together.
I was sitting on the floor with Grace when Joey said to me, "Mom, do you know how dinosaurs have babies?"
"How do they have babies, Joe?" I said playing along.
Joey happily responded, "They lay eggs."
"That's right!" I confirmed.
"They lay eggs out of their dinosaur paginas." Joe stated.
Oh sheesh. I wasn't expecting that. "Do you mean vaginas?" I asked.
"Yeah. Paginas." he said again.
"That's Va-ginas. With a V. Vaginas. And I don't know if it works that way, Joe." I corrected.
"Oh yeah. That's how it works!" he was quick to tell me.
"No. What I mean is I don't know if dinosaurs have vaginas. Todd, does it say that in there???" I asked, a bit taken aback.
"Um, no. No it doesn't." Todd answered.
"Uh-huh! That's how it works! They have VA-ginas!" Joey said again.
Tommy quickly jumped to Joey's defense and said, "Uh-huh! The GIRL dinosaurs do! They hab the baginas!"
"Yeah! The GIRL dinosaurs have VA-ginas." Joey agreed.
Sigh. "Boys, what I'm trying to say is that I don't know if they are called vaginas." I said growing more and more tired of this conversation.
"Uh-huh! They are! They are called paginas. I mean, VA-ginas! And they lay eggs!" Joey said positively.
Finally, having had enough of this crazy talk, Ben couldn't take it anymore and yelled, "STOP IT! STOP IT! Your gonna gib me nightmares!"
Me too, Ben. Me too!
