Interior Setting – Master Bathroom
The bathtub is being filled with water. Toys floating on the surface include plastic fish as well as Thomas and Percy bathtub toys. A toddler watches the water fill from a few feet away. A vigilant mother gazes from her perch on the toilet. In stark contrast to her normal behavior, she is peeing with the door open in order to maintain her child’s safety.
Child Whatchu doin?
Mother: I’m peeing.
Child: Your penis go pee-pee?
And thus was our first conversation about how only boys and daddies have penises.
It brought to mind a favorite scene from a movie. If you guess it, you win. You won’t win a prize. You just win.
“Boys have a penis. Girls have a vagina.”
