How do you pee?

I was telling J the other day that he needed to learn to hold his when he goes potty so that he does not dribble everywhere. He agreed :)

The next time he went he came back and told me "I held it mommy" and I said "good job" . Then he proceeded to tell me "you don't have to do that because you don't have a, you have a uterus" I did have to explain that while that was true, my uterus was not used for that purpose.

And can someone please tell me how to explain to my 3yr old what a tampon is? He asks about those darn machines every time we go to the bathroom and "it's just something that girls use" just ain't cutting it anymore.

Those are diaper machines around here...and "big boys can't wear the little baby diapers they sell." The same goes for the condom dispensers that are like the parsley here in they really need them in the family restroom at the mall?

Oh, and my 11 year old used the phrase, "it tasted like I was sucking on a snake," today. I banned him from ever saying it again without explanation. I can just see THAT going over well at school. (Just so you don't think that kids ever grow out of saying things that make you blush)
