My daughter is four, and her curiosity about everything on the planet varies from being the most adorable thing that you have ever heard in your life.... to annoying in about 3 seconds.
My son, Sammy, has recently taken to streaking through the house, naked from the waist down...(Apparently men develop an obscene fascination with their man-parts at an early age.) While Sammy's new pastime bothers no one else in our home... Abby becomes infuriated whenever Sammy runs around naked with his doodles "bouncing all over the place."
Abby: MOM!!! SAMMY TOOK HIS PANTS AND DIAPER OFF AND I CAN SEE HIS BUTT!!!!
Mom: Okay...Abby, please don't scream like that. It's not a big deal. I just have to put his diaper back on.
Abby: But...Mom? Why do little boys want to run around naked?
Mom: Because, Abby...they like it. Little boys are kind of weird, and we're just going to let your brother be weird and run around naked.
Abby: Why can't he get in trouble today for being naked?
Mom: Because...that's what Sammy likes and he's little and he isn't hurting anyone so...we're just going to let him do it.
Abby: Why?!!! I don't want him to be naked, why can he do it?
Mom: Because......you did it too, when you were little. When we were teaching you to use the potty. We let you run around naked, and it wasn't very long and you were using the potty.
Abby: Yeah, but Mom! (Long pause) His peeper is just bouncing all over the place!
