A little dinner conversation
Some things are just too difficult to explain to little kids.
Today at dinner (yes, this is conversation you would have while eating with an OB-GYN), my husband was telling me about a lady with incontinence, who had been to another surgeon, whose sling was coming out her vagina.
“What, someone had a broken arm?” asked Cameron, only hearing the word sling.
Then Melvin tried to explain about this lady who would urinate when she would stand up. He went on to vaguely tell about a little of his surgery, to a 6 year old, using words like urethra, urine, vagina, bladder, etc.
Cameron kept getting all the words confused. At one point he thought the lady had pee coming out her ears! And somehow this conversation led to, “but then where does the baby come out, your butt?” This then led to Cameron making the observation that if you have a baby, your “bagina” can just break all apart. To which my husband and I just completely agreed, and Melvin told him that his job is to fix that.
This very odd, somewhat chaotic conversation was occurring with Max picking away at his food.
Finally, he chimed in and said, “If you pee in China, you might pee on a Panda bear.”
Vagina, Bagina, China….it’s all the same thing, right?
