Daddy that looks like.....

So we are fairly "liberal" in our hosuehold I guess you could say. Caitlyn was taught pretty early on what parts boys have and what parts girls have. She was taught this when she realized that daddy doesn't sit down to pee. Needless to say, in the grocery store pointing at boys and saying "Mommy, penis!" goes over like a lead balloon in society.

Anyhow, when we are out and about, Caitlyn will often go into the restroom with Matt if he has to make a pit stop. Now don't get me wrong. I am not sending her in there to view "packages" of other men. Matt is sure to take her into the stall when he does his business to make sure that she is not viewing the other men in the bathroom. I have told Matt that soon this will need to stop as she is becoming more curious and looking at our bodies in different ways now.

Appearently, we missed the window of opportunity to stop the behavior. Last week in Denny's, Matt made a trip to the bathroom and naturally Caitlyn escorted him there. They were in the stall as there were 3 other men in the bathroom using the urinals. Matt removes his organ if you will to perform his deed. Caitlyn, being 3 and having NO IDEA whatsoever on how to whisper, proceeds to point at his penis and tell him...

"Daddy that looks like a bandaid."

So needless to say, their were bursts of laughter from the other side of the stall door. Upon exiting, the men look at Matt and begin to laugh, to which Matt also begins laughing. As the men slowly exit the restroom and return to their booths/tables, you see them talking to the people they are with, pointing at Caitlyn, which is foloowed by bursts of laughter from the other parties.

So the moral of the story is...Caitlyn WILL NOT be venturing into the men's bathroom until she is old enough to drink in a bar and the line for the women's bathroom is too long.
