Conversations with 5-year olds

A discussion this morning in the car on the way to daycare:

(the sounds of “Diego” are in the background)

Me: Hey, did you know that in two weeks, we’ll know whether you’re having a baby brother or baby sister?

MLI: Yes, mommy told me that already.

Me: Well, which would you rather have? A brother or a sister?

MLI: A baby brother…(slight pause)…I don’t want a baby sister, because girls wear panties! …I can’t say that when mom’s around.

I said: Well one day you’ll feel completely different about girls and their panties (I said this on the inside)

On the outside: I just laughed and laughed…

My my, how things change!
