OMG! This morning my friend and her 5 year old daughter stopped by. My 2 yo ds was naked and running around. Miss Lane (the 5 year old) is very observant of the differences in people and will not hesitate to tell you. IE
am pregnant. She has know since I was about 2 months. Once she came over and said" When is your tummy going to get big" I responded,"It will. It just needs some more time to grow."She responded "Well maybe she just got mixed up where she should be, because your butt is sure growing!" That ,my friends, is Miss Lane.
Anyway this morning she looked and looked at ds(intact) and you could see the wheels turning. "Look how cute his little pee pee is. It looks just like Pooh Bear's bee hive." I about fell off my chair! I have heard "pointy", "anteater", "hooded", But never bee hive.He was outside and a bit chilled so it was "shrunk" and the foreskin looked especially long. But when I looked it did sort of look at that moment like a bee hive on Winnie the Pooh. She then asked" Why does EJ(4 yo brother) not have a bee hive?"
How would you respond. I do not want to make my friend feel worse than she already does. She knows my incredibly strong stance on this subject and after given the info, would never circ again.
I just said ds is lucky and still has the protective top. Someday he will be able to grow out of it and it won't always look like a bee hive.
I didn't want to say "Your baby brother had his penis cut up because he had a bad dr."Or anything that would make her go and tell her little brother that he had his penis cut. And believe me that is the first thing she would say to him.
What would you say?
