I’m loving these things.
I ordered Marin 3 pairs. I especially love that they make them for boys too.
Me: So which planets did you talk about today?
Joan: Ummm, Jupiter, and Mars, and…
Kate: That one! Like what Daddy has!
(David and me-in our heads: What? Ur-anus? How do they know that??)
One beat, two beats, three beats go by…
Joan: You know, like what DADDY has?
Me (light bulb!): Oh, you mean Venus?
Joan: NO! It’s PENIS. My teacher said so! Penis.
Me: No, actually, the planet is called VVVV-enus.
Kate: NO! IT’S NOT! IT’S PENIS. MISS BECKY SAID!
Okaaaayyy, whatever you say.
(Can’t you just hear them at preschool? “My daddy has one of those!”)
Joan, having a disgusting habit of keeping a booger on her top lip, and licking it slowly, like a lollipop, shrieks at David when he wiped her face (unknowing of her lovely habit)- “HEY! I was eating that!”
Kate: I don’t want to get my ears pierced because it would HURT. I’m just going to wait for a hole to open up, and then stick an earing it it.
Me: Well, how do you tell a girl baby from a boy baby?
Joan: By its clothes!
Me: But when they are born, they don’t have any clothes on. How do we know what the baby is then?
Joan: By it’s hair!
Me: No. Think about it. Do you know the difference between boys and girls?
Joan: By their voice!
(So my girls think there is a planet called Penis, like Daddy has, but have NO idea how to tell boys and girls apart. Interesting.)
