Penis Envy

"Mommy, do you wish you had a penis and tex-acles like me?"

"Well, maybe a little, sometimes. Do you wish you had a vagina?"

"No. I like what I have."


"Every peoples likes what they have. Right?"

[Pause, while Mommy considers whether it's time to talk about the transgendered community. Hm, probably not.]

"Yes, I think you're right."

Thanks for your kind words on 'Little House'. Its so nice to randomly collide with others out there on the web with similar approaches to life! How did you find me?
I've enjoyed reading your writing here - very funny body parts story. I'll be stopping by often I can tell...

Hi Kate,
You're welcome! I know what you mean about the web. I'm addicted to Catherine Newman's writings, and sometimes I click on people's logs from her comments page, and yours struck me as somehow kindred. I'm glad to hear from you! And I'll be checking your blog often too... your kids are adorable!
