We`ve had a sick little guy on our hands for the past couple of days which is sad, but also kind of nice because he is really cuddly and mopey when he`s sick which can be quite heartwarming (for about 48 hours). This morning he woke up early and crawled into bed and I decided we would YouTube some old cartoons that I would have watched when I was a kid and not feeling well, so…….CareBears it was!
Having never seen CareBears I anticipated the usual “Who`s that guy? What`s that girl`s name? That guy is a mean guy (obviously referring to No-Heart and Beastly)” etc. What I didn`t see coming was this………
“Mom? Do CareBears have vaginas?”
Hmmmm. How to handle? How to handle?
Me: I don`t think so. They`re imaginary so I don`t think they pee and poo. (nailed it!)
Thomas: Then why do those baby ones have diapers?
Ohhhhh. Well played Thomas, well played.
Me: Who wants to watch Curious George?!?!?!?
Another successful parenting moment by yours truly. Maybe I will write a how-to book, thanks for asking.
