A Magical, Elusive Beast

(Taken from a quick note I scribbled down last February.)

Today, while changing Jimmy's diaper with Ellie watching...

Ellie: "What's that thing called? That thing on Jim-mah?"
Me: "That?"
Ellie: "That thing."
Me: "Oh. Remember? It's called...a penis."
Ellie: "It's like a...like a...UNICORN."
Me: "Exactly."

And lately, I've seen it as much as a unicorn.

My 3 year old nephew has taken to explaining to the women folk in the family that we do not have 'weenuses', because we are 'guls'.

Just in case we were unclear.

I love Ellie's take.

I love little unicorns, they are so much better than huge antlers.

"um, you can't. you are a girl" "well that SUCKS! i bet you can do cool stuff with that!"...she was just about 4 at the time...hehe...i love little kids...
