At 2 1/2 years old, Knox knows about anatomy.
Knox (referring to a friend of his from our music class): She’s a girl, like Lately, right?
Me: That’s right. She & Lately are both girls.
Knox: Uh-huh, she’s a girl and she doesn’t have a penis like Lately doesn’t have a penis.
Me: Um…yes, that’s right. Girls don’t have penises. Who told you that?
Knox: Daddy. I think Lately needs to grow a penis. She needs to grow one, Mommy. Lately’s needs to grow a penis. She doesn’t have one yet.
Me (laughing): No, girls don’t grow penises, only boys have them. She’s not going to grow one, but we can continue this conversation another day…it’s naptime.
