Skeletons Are Not Boys or Girls
Him: Mommy, did you know that you can't really tell if skeletons are boys or girls?
Me: That's a good point. I hadn't thought of that.
Him: Yeah, because you can't tell if it's a boy because it doesn't have a weenie.
Me (suppressing a smile): That's true.
Him: You know, there is no bone in your weenie if you're a boy so it's not on a skeleton.
Me (trying harder not to smile): Yes, I think I knew that.
Him: But, Mommy, sometimes your weenie feels like it's a bone, even if there is no bone there.
Me (choking down laughter): Is that right?
Him: Yep, that's right! But then it goes away and it doesn't feel like a bone anymore.
Me (turning my head to "cough"): Good to know!
