So, Will and Julia have started taking a bath together on most nights (Julia in her seat in the tub). This makes my life much easier, but also invites a lot of questions. Will is very aware of his "parts" and wanted to know if baby Julia had the same parts. Finally, after incessant questions, we told him that no, baby Julia was a girl and thus had girl parts (we used the correct term, I'm just not using here to avoid any weird searchers; and by the way, why is everyone so squeamish about the girl word, but totally okay with the boy word?)
So, Will thinks about what he's learned and then repeats it back to us: "Baby Julia is a girl and she has a china."
Then, we get more questions: "Mama, YOU have a china?" Yes Will, I'm a girl. "Miss Melissa (his teacher at school) have a china?" Yes Will, but DON'T ASK HER ABOUT IT! That's just what we need...him asking his teachers about their "chinas"! We're actually a little bit thankful that he can't say the word exactly right.
