Dudley’s Anatomy

January 20th, 2008

Kenny and I often begin the pre-dawn hours curled up in our big chair looking over the water, sipping our chocolate milk and coffee.   Dudley will wind himself into an impossibly small ball on the ottoman and we will read books until the sun comes up.   Yesterday, Dudley was a little late coming to the Big Chair, and instead of hopping right up, he put his front paws up and gave his back a good stretch before climbing in to settle.

Kenny looked up at him and said in a hushed voice, “Mama, Dudley has a willy.”  

“That’s right, honey.   Dudley has a willy, just like you.”

“Mama,” he said, now in a conspiratorial whisper, “Dudley has a hiney, too.”

“Yes, Dudley has a hiney, too,” I said, echoing his tone.

“Mama… Dudley goes poop with his hiney.”

“That’s right, Kenny.   And he goes pee-pee with his willy, right?”

“He pee-pees outside, Mama.   I pee-pee in the potty,” now solemnly and quite serious.   Then, “Do you have a willy, Mama?”

I tried to explain that only boy’s have “willies” and then gently moved the subject to other matters, like, Kenny and Dudley both have ears, eyes, noses, teeth, etc.   But he didn’t forget the conversation as later that morning, when he followed me t the bathroom, he urgently said, “Mama!   You’re supposed to stand up to pee-pee!”

    And that’s why God gave me girls!!!! hee hee Reminds me of the time I babysat a little 8 year old boy for week. As I helped him get dressed for school he asked me why his willy(he pointed to it and said” that” rather than willy)stood up during the night. I told him to ask his daddy when he got back in town!!!!! Hopefully K. won’t have that discussion with you for many years, and he will choose his Dada to ask!!!

    Oh boy……fun topic….I haven’t got to that one. Josh hasn’t started stringing his words together yet. The closest to a sentence has been “Dan, bread!” Which means for me to “Sit DOWN in the chair (at the dining table) and give him some BREAD thats on MY plate!”:lol:

    Yep, I’ll direct some of those questions ASAP to daddy!

    One day as I changed his pull-up Buddy asked me if I had a penis. When I told him that I didn’t his eyes got wide and he said in a very concerned/alarmed voice, “Did someone pinch it off?!?”

    Girls ask too… “Daddy, why do you have a hangy thing? and why don’t I?” Then laughing with each other about it. Currently Pig Me Too is obsessed with her teeny tiny baby boobies (as she calls them) and she will get big ones when she is a mommy. 😮
