A Conversation with 3-year-old Miles

By  | 

Miles: Mom, elephants sure do have small penises, don’t they?

Mom: Ummm… they do?

Miles: Yes, they do. Remember when we went to the zoo with Claire and Cecily?

Mom: Yes… (that was about a month ago.)

Miles: Well, I saw an elephant, and I saw his penis. And it was really small.

Mom: Really?

Miles: Yes. I was surprised, because elephants are really big. But their penises are pretty small – kind of the same size as Big Hairy Dog’s.

And then he left the room…

    HAHAHA!!! Wow, the conversations we have with our kids. This is adorable. Also, I never knew that elephants had tiny penises. Huh.

    I had a similar conversation with my son after a zoo trip. I don't remember which animal it is but the penis twists, almost spun like a drill. He was amazed by that and I had to remind him on at least 2 occasions that it was not polite conversation for public.

    I had every intention of taking a nap today while Jack ( my 13 month old) took his nap. I googled something, found my answer and stumbled onto your blog. I really don’t know how it started. But now I’ve missed my nap, it’s lunch time and I haven’t had breakfast. A shower is probably not in my near future as Jack wails for company now that he’s done napping. But I don’t want to put down my phone because I have had so much fun not napping, eating or showering. Thanks 🙂
