Real Talk with Cheeks

Having a 5 year old is new to me.
Having a 5 year old boy is a whole other ball game.

Take for instance, this conversation.

Scene: My bathroom, me, sitting on edge of tub running water for Cheeks bath. Him using the potty.

All of a sudden he slams the seat & lid down.
Looks at me & says:

"Mom, I almost slammed it on my penis"

Me:
"That's not good Cheeks, not at all. If that happens we have to go to the hospital"

Cheeks:
"Why? Will they give me a new one?"

Me:
"No, they don't make penises"

Cheeks:
"Do they only make them in adult sizes?"

Me:
"No, they just don't make them."

Cheeks:
"Are they out of them? Can they order them?"

Me:
"No, they don't make them like that.  If you slam the seat down, it will hurt for a long time"

Cheeks:
"Well can I get a toy penis & a toy butt?"

Me:
"Bobster! Where have you been taking this child?"

And, scene.
