Skeletons Are Not Boys or Girls

So I had this hilarious conversation with my six-year-old recently as we were decorating for Halloween and putting together a PVC pipe skeleton ...

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!
