Dinosaur Paginas Give Me Nightmares!

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!

I LOVE the way a child's mind works! The other day coming home from church, Kyleigh says, "I didn't say 'Pahjina'". My heart sank thinking about her sweet little old lady Sunday School teacher. "...and I didn't say 'willy'". sigh.

I would just agree to agree they have paginas and hope it never comes up again. Also? Hide that book. :)

Cassie said...

LOL! I think having conversations about dinosaur vaginas only happens in housefuls of little boys! I have so much to look forward to don't I?

Tonya said...

In response to a old post, we just recently (Jan) started using the proper term vagina (whereas before everything was a heine- front or back). Now she will say it all the time and it does drive me a little crazy. Trying to ignore it, but I am with you on this!

Krystyn said...

My six year old daughter has been learning German at school -- particularly the numbers -- and announces to everyone she meets "I'm Emma, and I'm sex."

Doris said...

Funny! Sounds like a conversation I'd have with my son - he is very insistent once he decides on something.

Very Sweet! I think you handled yourself very well. "You say Pajina, I'll say Vagina, let's call the whole thing off"

April said...

OMG this is freakin' hilarious!! My hubby's cousin Shayne is five and she is obsessed (I mean OBSESSED with boys and their parts). She told me the other day, "I like boys. And I like penises." Oh my LORD. LOL

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
